In the Wild for October 1, 2010
There has been significant buzz this week about Dav Glass's tech talk on YUI 3 support in Node.js and what that enables in terms of progressive enhancement, as well as for Matt Taylor's YUI 3 Gallery module for RaphaelJS. Luke Smith had a nice developer tip on the blog this week on extending YUI to "add your own awesome," developer Stefan Klopp from CarRentalExpress.com shared his thoughts about using YUI 2 to power his site, and Carlo Zottmann shared his gorgeous new "Dana" theme for YUI's documentation workhorse, YUI Doc.
Meanwhile, here are a few other recent pieces of news from the community:
- Evan Goer (@evangoer), "YUI 3 Grids Are Dead Simple": Evan likes Matt Sweeney's YUI 3 Grids, which debuted in beta in YUI 3.2.0. Writes Evan: "Not only is this version tiny (1.5 KB), but it’s the first layout system I’ve ever used where I can just write out whatever grid I want from memory, without ever needing to look at the docs."

- IHikeWithMeetup.com Built with YUI 2.8: IHikeWithMeetup.com is a clever mashup of Meetup.com data from Bay Area hiking groups along with weather data and Yahoo! Maps — and all hosted with Yahoo web hosting. Naturally, the site is powered by a healthy helping of YUI 2.8 components. #
- Canonical's Landscape Ubuntu Systems Manager Powered by YUI 3: Canonical uses YUI 3 extensively, including in its Landscape product. According to the product page, "Landscape makes the management and monitoring of Ubuntu systems simple and effective by combining world-class support with easy to use online management tools." #
