jsdo try out

  • I'm working on a fun project. 

  • Looks nice! Do you build it all yourself or do you use bootstrap or something similar? How is it talking to the database? Can we expect to download it in the near future?

    C'mon Steef, tell us a bit more :)

  • regarding the paging mechanism ...

    most tables, queries we work with are quite big with millions, tens of millions or more rows, for the sake of discussion i would consider them infinite

    having a grid that either shows the total number of rows for the table or query, or worst loads everything would be a problem, no?

    we decided to base our framework on extjs not telerik but in our framework the grid (connected to a data object/store) loads pages as needed or as you scroll off end, so to speak.

    Both are possible, yes, could be in the config info per .html or more central.

  • Cool stuff! :)

  • Library select2.js to style select elements.

  • Curious to see how the open source kendo components will fit 

  • I like the article, but reading the comments was even more interesting!
    In fact, they kind of proof the issues the JS world is facing at the moment which the writer has pointed out.
    No consensus whatsoever, some like standards, some hate them. Some want frameworks, some want libraries…hence the fragmented environment J

    Curious to see how the open source kendo components will fit in my framework!

    "Prefer dedicated libraries to monolithic frameworks. When you choose

    a framework, you make a large, long term committment. You sign up to

    learn about the framework's various inner workings and strange

    behaviours. You also sign up to a period of ineffectiveness whilst

    you're getting to grips with things. If the framework turns out to be

    the wrong bet, you lose a lot. But if you pick and choose from

    libraries, you can afford to replace one part of your front end stack

    whilst retaining the rest."

      "There will never be a perfect framework so you can just hack the

    most relevant features together.

     By using small libraries - components with a dedicated purpose and a

    small surface area - it becomes possible to pick and mix, to swap

    parts of our front end stack out if and when they are superceded. New

    projects can replace only the parts that matter, whilst core

    functionality whose designs are settled - routing APIs, say - can stay

    exactly the same between the years."

  • I want a framework that consists of libraries. :-)

    (in fact that's what I'm building. loosely coupled components blabla etc.)

    Long live the fragmented environment!

  • Here's a fun take on this discussion: www.stilldrinking.org/programming-sucks

  • That was a hilarious (and somewhat painfully sad) read!  Thanks for sharing it with the community!

  • and most of all, disturbingly accurate
