Next generation YUI framework

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010 by Servage

In the earlier article “Make rich web-applications easily” we wrote about the YUI framework, which enables you to easily add web 2.0 features to your website. The Yahoo developers have continued their quest of creating cool functionality with state-of-the-art technology, and released the next generation of their framework, called YUI3. They say “YUI 3 is Yahoo!’s next-generation JavaScript and CSS library; it powers the new Yahoo! homepage and incorporates what we’ve learned in five years of dedicated library development.”

I encourage you to have a look at the features YUI3 provides, so you can add cool features to your own framework. At the same time it is also well designed, which makes it easy for you to implement – regardless if you choose to base your whole project, or only parts of it, on their library.

At the same time, it is also important to notice that of course no single project, plugin, library or framework is the single answer to all possible projects. There is still the great jQuery JavaScript library for general AJAX functionality, including lots of interface plugins. This library has also received major updates since we presented it in an earlier article.

On a side note, I can also say from my own experience, that there are projects out there fulfilling a single need better than some of the parts provided by the above libraries. For example for Graphs there is the great project from amCharts.

Happy coding!
