In the Wild for October 22, 2009

By Eric MiragliaOctober 22nd, 2009

With YUI 2.8.0, YUI 3.0.0, and PHP Loader 1.0.0 beta 1 out the door, the team here is focused on our final big objective for the year: YUICONF2009. Brendan Eich and Douglas Crockford will be keynoting next week at our first public, YUI-focused conference. In addition to the YUI engineers presenting sessions, we’re looking forward to hearing from community members like Matt Snider and Eric Ferraiuolo. While the conference is sold out, YUI Theater will be there capturing as much as it can — so stay tuned here for video coverage as it becomes available.

Here are a few of the other YUI-related news items we’ve tracked in the past few weeks. If you have an item we missed, or something you’d like to see covered in the next update, please leave a note in the comments; for all the latest YUI news as it happens, follow yuilibrary on Twitter.

  1. YUI has really helped us get our site where we wanted it to be fast! Our site is a social media site that let’s users check out what the latest online talk is, create personal polls, product reviews, etc, in a quick clean environment supported by YUI’s awesome tooltip component and a number of others. Also very exciting was the lack of cross browser compliancy nightmares as we used YUI reset css and YUI buttons. Withouth YUI components this site would have been a nightmare to build. We also used a number of other components to give the user as much control over how the site appeared as possible, such as the Color Picker, and Image Cropper. Furthermore we are using the YUI dialog for blazing fast image previews.
    Heck, our site is pretty much a YUI playground! Huge thanks from Fuze Inc. You’ll find no fan bigger than us! Couldn’t have done it without YUI!

  3. Me and a friend built this little tool as we found ourselves always wanting to crop images, round their corners, and add a drop shadow, but didn’t want to open up the CPU hungry CS4 every time.
    In this site, we utilize YUI reset, YUI Image Cropper, and YUI Slider. Although still in it’s beta form, we felt like the YUI image cropper was the easiest to modify in addition to not having to worry about any internal library conflicts.
    As YUI doesn’t seem to include any logo’s in it’s library, I used a picture of my cat to illustrate how the site works on the top page.

    Thanks YUI team, you guys are GODS!
