That’s using jQuery Mobile 1.01 for the UI and YUI 3.5.0PR2 for the MVC client-side framework, although I’m tempted to move over to backbone.js (which is what the YUI application framework is based on, it seems). Backbone.js has beautifully annotated source and a book – Developing backbone applications – which so far seems like very worthwhile reading material.
The prototype can be played with at http://opengoaltracker.org/prototype_fun/
I’ve been playing around wit h YUI’s new application framework over the past few weeks, basically building on the ToDo list example app, extending it for a basic interface for the Open Goal Tracker project. Here’s a 2 min demo:
I’m loving the MVC separation in the client code, separation of templates, ability to use real links for navigating within the client (which will also work when copy-n-pasted to hit the server) etc.
If anyone is interested, you can play with the code yourself:
$ bzr branch lp:~michael.nelson/open-goal-tracker/html5-client-play $ cd html5-client-play $ fab test
which will setup the dev environment and run the django tests… followed by
$ fab runserver
To play with the demo html5 client: http://localhost:8000/static/index.html
or find out more about the purpose of the app with the first 2 mins of this video from a year ago outlining where i hope to go with the application: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT7P-u-86sM (when time permits :)).
