choice. However, if you use ASP .NET, Atlast should be your first
choice, and as of Java, see Google Web Toolkit or some others.
- Thanks I'm leaning towards MS Visual Web Developer(ASP.NET)as it's a
visual designer that uses either C++ or VB. It does have some(Atlas)
patterns but IMO Yahoo's widgets and patterns will be more universal.
Autocomplete, rating, and drag and drop are all great and the cheat
sheets look like a great idea. I am not a developer and am learning so
when I get stuck I can hire by the hour a solution.
So im guessing downloading the package and putting the needed files on
a server, pasting the other needed code into an .aspx or it's .aspx.vb
page/file and configuring them is what I now need to learn.
Well you can certainly use YUI with any server-side language of your choice. However, if you use ASP .NET, Atlast should be your first choice, and as of Java, see Google Web Toolkit or some others.
There’s really no reason that YUI shouldn’t be your first choice for ASP.NET or Java.
In fact, that Atlas and GWT are strongly tied to specific back-end languages can be considered a good reason not to use them.
- The thing I am considering, and please feel free to correct me, is it
looks like YUI's patterns for the most part are better thought out or
at least have the features I want.
I must say Atlas and blueprints work out of the box, you just drag
them in the visual designer and bind them. OK a little more. Yahoo's
patterns on the other hand seem to need a much better knowledge of JS.
It's like they are created for coders only, and the other two make an
attempt to be of use by beginners that are willing to read the tutorials.
When GWT came out being Google I thought it would have a visual UI
also being Google and all. Microsoft of all people, has a wizard that
sets up a login and password recovery and it took me two hours.
