In the Wild for March 13
- More support for YUI on .Net: We wrote in our last "In the Wild" about Luke Foust looking for help with his popular YUI.Net project. Colin Mathews dropped a comment about his similar YUI-on-.Net effort, which includes support for some of YUI's most popular components like DataTable, Calendar, and the Rich Text Editor. Colin, thanks for the note, and great work on the project.
- LinkedIn redesigned with YUI: Emanuel commented on our previous post that we'd neglected to mention LinkedIn's YUI-driven redesign. We'll spend some time with Steve Ganz and others on the team over there as soon as we can and share more details about what they're doing with YUI and how it's working for them.
- Satyam's YUI Loader explorer: YUI Community Award-winner Satyam wanted to see us do a better job using YUI Loader to show YUI's dependency tree, so he coded up a quick YUI Loader component/filelist generator that allows you to configure your YUI dependencies based on the components you're using. We'll take this idea and move it onto the YUI site itself very soon; thanks Satyam!
- Patrick Gillespie adds the YUI Slider to his Color Pallet Generator: This is more an excuse just to mention Patrick's cool pallet generator, into which you can submit an image URL and be presented with color pallettes based on the colors in your image. Patrick has added a hue adjustment control implemented with the YUI Slider, which makes a nice tool even more useful.
- Dave Dash's Triangle Toggler: It wouldn't be an "In the Wild" post these days if we didn't have a cool tutorial from Dave Dash at spindrop. In this edition, he weighs in with a triangle toggler control to show expand/collapse states. And it wouldn't be a Dave Dash demo without full code and explanations.
- More from Dave — Star rating widget with YUI and Django: Dave starts with the Yahoo! Design Pattern Library's star-rating pattern and uses YUI to build out a slick star-rating widget.
- Andrew Wooldridge's DOM Splicer Demo: "Imagine if you will," Andrew writes, "that DIV and P elements on a page were like little organisms floating in the browser. Their DNA would be represented by the CSS properties that they possess. Such things as borders and background colors, etc. Now imagine if we took some YUI libraries and gathered up all these elements and "spliced" their CSS DNA. Then we create a new DIV which we then assign this new spliced CSS and drop it into the page." Check out his article and demo for his YUI-based DOM-splicer.
