Building mobile apps with Dojo mobile (router)

December 24th, 2013 | 10 min read | Dojo, Mobile, Web

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.

Disqus it

November 22nd, 2013 | 1 min read | none

Het voorbije jaar heb ik regelmatig het commenting systeem aangepast omdat ik genoodzaakt was dit te doen ter preventie van spam. Ik heb een tijd lang ervoor gezorgd dat registratie een vereiste was, en de voorbije maanden heb ik ervoor gezorgd dat comments eerst approved moeten worden. Omdat ik dat niet bepaald community-vriendelijk vind, heb […]

JavaScript, toekomst of geen toekomst?

August 22nd, 2013 | 1 min read | Dojo, JavaScript, Web

Wie DZone of andere webdevelopment gerelateerde websites volgt, zal het ongetwijfeld al gemerkt hebben de laatste jaren, JavaScript is bezig met een echte opmars. Waar je enkele jaren geleden enkel nog artikels over jQuery, jQuery en nog meer jQuery zag verschijnen, zie je nu tevens artikels over AngularJS, Backbone.js, Ember.js, Handlebars.js, Component, RequireJS, QUnit, Jasmine, […]

Dojo inheritance, overriding & extending

July 20th, 2013 | 6 min read | Dojo, JavaScript

Dojo is a decent JavaScript framework offering a lot of functionality. One of its biggest trumphs is the possibility to extend modules in an easy way through mixin inheritance. In this tutorial I’m going to show you how you can extend a widget with extra functionality.

Dojo publisher & subscriber

July 12th, 2013 | 5 min read | Dojo, JavaScript

As a third tutorial about Dojo this month I’m going to talk about a very common design pattern called the observer/observable pattern or also known as the publisher/subscriber pattern. JavaScript is a primary event driven language, the problem that occurs often is that one event might trigger multiple actions. When you have to deal with […]

Dojo require vs define

July 9th, 2013 | 6 min read | Dojo, JavaScript

I didn’t exactly plan on writin this, but after a question from an intern, I thought it might be interesting to exaplain the difference between¬†require()¬†and¬†define(). Every developer who has used Dojo or even another JavaScript framework/platform like Node.js and RequireJS, knows that one time or another, you need to load your modules.¬†In Dojo they chose […]

July 8th, 2013 | 2 min read | none

De maand juli is op g00glen00b¬†Dojo¬†maand! Buiten de tutorial over Jasmine ben ik van plan om deze maand enkel tutorials uit te brengen die te maken hebben met Dojo.
