Get Something Built

All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.

I spoke with Delmore and Adam Lehman this weekend about the use of multiple javascript libraries. Ext 1.1 didn’t have everything Ext 2.0 has so they had use multiple libraries. Makes sense.

For CF9…PLEASE GET RID OF YUI! The UI components are absolutely flakey. I’ve been able to reproduce tons of issues with _cflayout_ tabs (I mean really horrible one’s; haven’t spent time debugging the JS though) and _cftooltip_ (“fix here”:https://www.johncblandii.com/2008/04/coldfusion-801-cftooltip-is-br.html).

So…no code suggestions or anything…just please nix YUI and fully integrate Ext 2 or whatever the current version is when CF9 comes out.
