Things could not have gone better for us this weekend at jQuery Conference in Boston! We are so excited to have this much interest in our jQuery UI widgets. Did you know that we were just planning to announce the project at jQCon? Yeah, then Richard Worth told us that you (the jQuery community) are going to want to see some code ASAP. So that lit a fire under us to get our entire kit of Open Source widgets up on github. Needless to say we were hard at work during our 10 hour drive from Pittsburgh all the way up to 3 minutes before I walked on stage. Now that we launched Wijmo-Open's Beta, we have some other important stuff to do. So here are the plans.
We have another private repo on github for Wijmo Open. We are currently doing bug fixes and cleaning up all of the widgets in Wijmo Complete. When the first widget is ready, we will make the repo public and commit our first widget. We should have our first widgets posted tomorrow and more will be added as completed. Anyone in the Private Beta will be notified and allowed access to the code and forums.
A lot of you have been asking for a place to view the samples without downloading. This is one of the first things we plan to do now that we are back in Pittsburgh. We should have it posted on our site some time Tomorrow. Thanks for the patience on this one. We just weren't able to get it published in time for the conference with all of our focus on getting everything to github.
We have been hard at work writing full documentation for every widget in Wijmo Open and Wijmo Complete. We will be publishing the docs on our website very soon. We hope to have documentation online by Friday. The docs will cover options, events, and methods for each widget. They will also show sample code for initializing each widget as well as sample code for each option.
On November 22nd we plan to open our Beta to anyone and everyone who wants to join. We hope that the current beta users will submit feedback and ideas to help make the public beta and version 1 even better! So if you are member, please get in the Wijmo forums and post your thoughts.
