new section: jquery

Post by yacahuma »

Hello,
Jquery seems to be the way to go for new web development (web 2.0). I would like to suggest a jquery section on phpdn. The things you are going to do with jquery are so peculiar , that they should not go inside the javascript section.


Thank you

If we did that, I think we would also need to add a forum for prototype as well. We could take a vote on it.

Perhaps just a generic forum for Javascript frameworks, jQuery, Mootools, Dojo, etc.?

What's the problem with using the current Javascript section for that? we don't have a section for PHP frameworks as well (and that's more of a core discussion here in the forums)

What's so peculiar about using jQuery? it's still javascript at its base

I think a generic javascript framework will be a good solution. A php frameworks forum will not be a bad idea either. Having a question about a framework usually has nothing to do with the language. For example, phpdn has a security forum. If I follow pytrin logic, I will say that the section could go inside php code. If the idea about having different forums is to separate the topics, then having a framework sections make sense.

Hardly. Though sometimes code is involved, a lot of the discussions there are about theory and best practices. Security also involves other parts such as databases and servers.

-1. jQuery is javascript so that's where it should stay. The more we break up areas of discussion, the greater chance there is for posting in the wrong forum & people hesitating to ask a question because they don't know where to post.
Real programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

I'll have to agree and disagree :)
While I like very much JavaScript as a language and I'm willing to help anyone who needs help in the JavaScript section, it's very rare that it would be the case (I mean the post is about a "pure" JavaScript problem) - 70% of posts are about jQuery. I've played with it a lot, but I don't find its problems interesting enough to answer. JavaScript is a very powerful language and "end-user-wrappers" like jQuery may be considered as different simplified languages (I do agree they solve many issues like cross-browser ones, document parsing, etc.).

So, probably a "JavaScript" section together with a "JavaScript frameworks" section would be my wish :)

- Javascript Code
- Javascript Frameworks

We broke it out like that for PHP code (sort of). I'm proposing adding 'PHP Frameworks' as well.
