NWT – .Net Web Toolkit

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 10/26/2011

Now, after waiting for quite some time, we finally can implement the real solution for .Net <-> javascript conversion and bridge the impedance gap in the projects that heavily rely on the powerful rich web UI.

Currently we have solutions like Script# and CofeeScript and others. The pros in cons of these systems have been discussed countless times (ex: HanselminutesJavaScript is Assembly Language for the Web: Semantic Markup is Dead! Clean vs. Machine-coded HTML).

With the recently released project Roslyn (or alternatively Mono Compiler Services) it is possible to have a clean solution to the problem:  I write my data and data model in a language and an environment that allow solid validation and refactoring.

I’m ironing out some kinks in my implementation and, as soon as it’ll be in a stable state, I’m going to release a NWT (NeWT) project that will provide a similar to GWT (Google Web Toolkit) functionality.

John Resig on jQuery @ Waltham, MA

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 02/16/2009


Last Wednesday John Resig stopped by to chat about jQuery. The room was packed so we had to join a second room. It was a pretty engaging presentation – loved it.

A couple of interesting links:

  1. jQuery UI
  2. jQuery Themes – Themeroller
  3. Advanced jQuery on John’s blog
  4. jQuery in Action book by Bear Bibeault and Yehuda Katz with source code examples

And finally loved the Google trends chart of the adoption rates of all the major java script libraries that John mentioned (link is under the picture):

Am I the only one? or Html is not that XML compliant.

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 12/18/2008

While working on my latest project, I’ve noticed that my site (that uses jQuery) was working properly on Google Chrome, but wasn’t working at all (without any errors) on IE7 and FF.

After very long fight I’ve noticed that (are you ready for this?) it does matter how you close the <script> tag.

Compare this (WORKING !!!):

<script src="scripts/jquery-1.2.6.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

with this (NOT WORKING !!!):

<script src="scripts/jquery-1.2.6.js" type="text/javascript" />

Note that the closing tag HAVE to be present as a separate node. YOU CAN’T USE THE SHORT NOTATION !!!
