Response to the article by readers is overwhelmingly positive, with a high rating from many votes and a healthy serving of lively comments and feedback. From the feedback, it is clear that the folks behind YUI are thinking along similar lines, although their "synthetic events" feature is not as fleshed out at the time, nor is it thoroughly documented like the UIZE Virtual DOM Events feature. This article struck a chord, and it took all of a day for developers behind jQuery to transcode the UIZE implementation and offer equivalent features. Well, you know what they say: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". UIZE considers itself flattered. Dion links to two examples on the UIZE Web site in this article: the Edge Virtual DOM Events and Virtual DOM Events examples.
The writers do a great job of capturing snapshots of image wipes in progress to complement the sample code provided. Another nice look at the power of UIZE from ASCII.jp.
This review provides an overview of the functionality of the framework, looks at a few of the examples provided on the uize.com Web site, discusses download and setup, and takes readers through the basic steps of setting up a page to use the framework, with an example provided that performs an images zoom animation upon loading. Overall, a very well considered and well written article.
Dion Almaer of ajaxian.com fame reports on the release of the UIZE's Curve Explorer tool - a tool that lets users experiment with and preview curve functions that can be used to drive animation effects.
From the article: "Chris Vanrensburg has created a curve explorer that gives you a nice visualization of curve functions which are used for animations (easing and the like)." It's fun to play with curves - especially if you can see them plotted as you tweak parameters, or see how they affect motion with an animation, or what they look like as a color gradient. This review explores some of the background behind the development of the curve explorer tool and discusses some of the design objectives. This article received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the community of Ajaxian readers.
A very favorable review of Mozilla's integration with Zazzle Inc. for the creation of an online store featuring original creative interpretations of the Firefox brand by a community of designers.
From the article: "Zazzle is built on the UIZE (pronounced 'you-eyes') Ajax framework which we covered briefly in 2006 ... it's got a pretty nice website, docs, widgets, basic effects, an event system, and an inheritance system. We'll have to give it a closer look!"
Community response was also very positive, with comments like "What's great about this implementation is that they quickly identified the Lightbox effect being problematic. Much too often we see sites use the Lightbox just because it's available and may semi-serve the purpose, ignoring all its faults. Kudos to Zazzle creating an effective solution that minimizes the 'cons' (such as 'minefields')."
From the article: "There are some nice widgets here... What's really neat, though, from an eye candy perspective, is the 'Wipe' effects - visual transitions from one image to another."
From the article: "A very impressive API hs been released recently : UIZE. Even if you just have a quick peek at the website you can see what it is all about : eye-candy without limits."
