HTML5 made browsers a powerful alternative to desktop applications. However, network traffic (when using AJAX or by simply loading pages) is always in one direction. The client requests a page from the server, which in turn responds with the proper content. With HTML5 WebSockets that’s a different story, websockets allow you to setup a full […]
👋Hey there,I'm Dimitri
I like trying out new frameworks and writing about them. Below you can find the latest articles I wrote.
In the previous tutorials we wrote our entire module using Dojo. In this tutorial I will finish the entire application by providing a HTML page and giving a demonstration of the application.
In the previous tutorial we finally started writing our module. However, we didn’t do anything fancy yet except using inheritance and writing down our properties. If you remember the first tutorial, we created several attach points and events, which we’re going to use now to finish our stopwatch.
In the previous tutorial we did everything we needed to set up our widget like providing our template and the localized messages. In this tutorial I will start writing our widget module by explaining the module system and inheritance.
In this simple project I will demonstrate you how you can create your own widget. In this tutorial we will handle several principles/patterns that are commonly used in Dojo. The following topics will be handled: Modularity Dojo inheritance Templating, attach points and events Internationalization Scoping using hitch
The entire web (and even the entire world) is changing. Today the world is more mobile than ever, and the web is following this trend. If you would compare the world 10 years ago to the world now, you will notice that a lot changed in the world of the devices. Desktop computers are making […]

There are two controllers in this example, the first one (MoviesController) will give us a list of all movies, while the second one (MovieController) will give us a detailed view of one movie. Since all routing, storing and […]
In the third part of this series I will tell you how to create controllers and views and how to re-use certain parts of your view (like the header) in all your views. In the previous tutorial I told you how to create a router, which will act as a topic listener. However, we didn’t […]
In the previous tutorial in this series I told you how to set up your project and we already provided our app with some data. Before we actually start writing the application and its behavior, I’m going to write the “glue” between the controllers, the router. Dojo mobile already has a way to transition between […]
