Subject [jira] [Commented] (TAP5-999) Implement an agnostic tapestry.js layer + adapters to allow developers to switch from prototype to jquery

Thiago H. de Paula Figueiredo commented on TAP5-999:
----------------------------------------------------

Hi, guys!

Have you taken a look in https://github.com/staaky/bridgejs, suggested by Joe Klecko in the
dev mailing list? BridgeJS is alpha, but it supports Prototype and jQuery and has a Prototype-like
syntax (so it's easier to port the current Tapestry JS code. It could at least provide some
inspiration for the Tapestry JavaScript abstraction layer. BridgeJS is licensed under a MIT-style
license, so I guess it's compatible with the Apache one.

>                 Key: TAP5-999
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-999
>             Project: Tapestry 5
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: tapestry-core
>    Affects Versions: 5.1.0.7, 5.0.19
>            Reporter: Christophe Cordenier
>            Assignee: Howard M. Lewis Ship

> As per the discussion on the mailing about Tapestry 5 and jQuery, i create this JIRA
to compile the toughts of everyone for this feature.
> As Howard said on the mailing list, goals are :
> Goal #1: Backwards compatibility
> Goal #2: Documented
> Goal #3: Plugability / Extensibility / Overridablilty
> First design thoughts suggested by howard are (extracted from Howard's answer) :
> 1. tapestry.js defines a Tapestry namespace with key function properties for the standard
stuff
> 2. split current tapestry.js into more smaller files
> 3. In addition to tapestry.js, ... include either tapestry-prototype-adapter.js (plus
prototype.js and scriptaculous.js) OR tapestry-jquery-adapter.js (plus jquery.js).
> 4. tapestry.js [should] be smaller handlers that often just fire additional events; a
cascade of events that eventually results in server-side requests
> Objectives :
> 1. make certain parts more pluggable i.e. Popup Bubbles
> 2. write javascript with functional closures
> 3. ... element could have at most one active animation; the animation would have to complete
before the next one (cf. jQuery animation and queuing mechanism)
> Challenges :
> 1. Remove prototype code from tapestry.js
> 2. Keep backward compatibility with existing Tapestry object
