Yahoo has done something nice for web world ! Surprised? I know some people don’t think they are very nice, since they will give your private search info to the government at the drop of a hat.
But Yahoo is trying to tell you it cares. The tools being released, are a pretty neat UI toolkit with features such as:
- XMLHttpRequest library
- Dom tools (CSS)
- Drag and Drop
- Event Manager
- UI “Widgets” such as a Calendar,Slider, and Tree view
I have yet to really take an in-depth look at the code, but I expect a little more bloat than some of the other open source js toolkits out there.
Either way, it is released with a BSD license and is free to use. Give it a try–
