Sam Foster, Dojo committer and SitePen software engineer and Dojo trainer, delivered a great overview of Dijit and Dojo widgets at the December London Ajax User Group event. If you’re interested in quickly getting an overview of Dijit, or just want to see Sam in action, check out the following:
- JSON Validation with JSON Schema discusses the general topic of JSON Schema, and how to use it for validation in general, with dojox.json.schema, and with CommonJS-Utils, part of Dojo Foundation project Persevere, on top of Node.js. JSON Schema is growing in popularity, for example, it’s used for Google Chrome’s extensions system.
- Generate Dojo GFX Drawings from SVG Files discusses exactly what the title says, a Dojo utility for converting SVG files to GFX format, and shows a nice SVG to GFX demo if you like the Arsenal. The October London Ajax video and web vector graphics slides also offer recent discussion around GFX.
If you’ve found an issue with Dojo, filing a bug is simple:
We encourage you to be as specific as possible about your issue. Note that you do NOT need to file a CLA to tell us about a bug, but we do require a CLA if you want to provide a patch or fix that will make its way into Dojo.
