Great to have you back for another weekly snapshot.
Cleanup of qx.lang
After the cleanup it should be much clearer now, what part is actually doing what. By adding a new sub namespace called
qx.lang.normalize we achieved the separation of those classes taking care of the native prototype manipulation and of those classes offering convenience on top of that via static methods. A big thanks to the qooxdoo community which had great feedback and therefore enabled us to focus on the right changes during the entire process.
Cloud9 IDE and qooxdoo
A project, surely well-known to the web community, is the awesome Cloud9 IDE. Christian Boulanger, a long-time qooxdoo contributor, took the time to write a series of blog posts about how he is currently doing development using Cloud9 IDE, node.js and qooxdoo. He also included a good hands-on tutorial on how to get started. Check out his findings:
- Coding qooxdoo on the Cloud9 IDE
- Developing a complete client-server application with qooxdoo on Cloud9IDE. Part 1: Application architecture
- Developing a complete client-server application with qooxdoo on Cloud9IDE. Part 2: Integrating socket.io
According to Christian the series is to be continued, so we’ll be glad to promote his progress and to keep you up-to-date.
