Dojo Recap – Week Ending May 8, 2015

Another exciting week is underway in the Dojo camp!

Initial Dojo 2 core repository is now public

In the intial core repository, you will find initial efforts in the repo for:

  • async
  • Promise
  • has
  • streams
  • WeakMap
  • decorators
  • lang
  • math
  • number
  • object observation
  • string shims

Class Declaration

We've run into a small roadblock with our proposal for traits or mixins in TypeScript, so we are evaluating our options.

Style Guide

We have an updated and exhaustive Dojo 2 style guide available. Please follow these guidelines when contributing to Dojo 2.

This week’s Dojo 2 goals

Here are a few of this week's aspirations!
