    Ember.js is an impressive piece of work. It can also be painfully verbose. A little syntactic sugar would make that go down easier. EmberScript is CoffeeScript with fine-tuning specifically for Ember.js. Fine-tuning includes bits like replacing class and extends with Ember.class and Ember.extends.

  • JQuery UI's getting fancy

    JQuery’s my favorite JavaScript library by a long shot (very straightforward approach to manipulating page elements), and the JQuery UI makes it even better (so much shiny). I’m looking forward to using it in future projects.

    Sadly, I need to hunker down at work and get back to my YUI stuff. YUI’s nice, but it is a lot more complex than JQuery. I’m still trying to figure out if it’s worth the extra overhead, or if I’m missing some way to make things easier.

    I’ll admit it. When I first got into Web programming, JavaScript was not my favorite language. It took too much work to get anything done, and then it wouldn’t work half the time on other browsers. That’s the other thing. It was only useful to most of us on Web browsers. Perl was funny-looking, but worked on nearly any machine and could make the most elaborate Web applications that worked regardless of what browser your visitor was using. You could even write applications that had nothing to do with the Web, using Perl/Tk and CPAN.
