WTF – backbase.com does a GET

While *trying* to take a look at their client edition,
i open Firebug and here’s what i see:

 GET http://www.backbase.com/registration/login.html?cmd=login&josso_username=XXX&josso_password=YYY&loginremember=1
 

Defitively a feature from the past!

More Dojo Goodies : JavaScript Linker

More Dojo Goodies : JavaScript Linker

I couldn’t resist blogging this… it’s an awesome tool!

Go checkout svn co http://svn.dojotoolkit.org/dojo/trunk/tools/jslinker, read
the instructions at http://svn.dojotoolkit.org/dojo/trunk/tools/jslinker/docs/readme.txt and … use it!

So, let’s say i create a web app that makes use of dojo and of tacos.
Currently, tacos.js is 54kb and dojo is at least 150kb. So, how about reducing this? How about keeping only the functions and the files that are actually called from the html files?

Well, that’s exactly what the JavaScript Linker does.

For my first example, i run

java -Xms8m -Xmx200m -cp jsl.jar:sisc.jar:bcel.jar org.dojo.jsl.top.Top –verbose –prj jsl.prj –sources ../tests/test_tacos.html
and was left with a 2.3kb dojo.js and a 6.3kb tacos.js

Doesn’t this rock??? Thx dojo & Well done to everyone involved.
