YUI 3 Alloy

Nate Cavanaugh and Eduardo Lundgren, of Liferay, have spent the last six months building a YUI3-based widget library. Not only did these guys write great widgets, but this library also helps fills in the gaps while we wait for YUI 3 to port all their YUI 2 widgets.

The Web Standards Cold War

The Flash and Standards: The Cold War of the Web is a good article by Dan Mall, proposing that developers get behind the standardization and improvement of one or more web-technology, instead of spending their time bashing the technologies they don&rsquot;t like. Worth a quick read.

MattSnider-Related News

I have been working diligently on integrating the RadialMenu with the YUI 3 overlay framework. I am pretty far along, and hope to have something to share by the end of this week. I will be submitting it to the YUI competition as well, so it will be available on the gallery.

Starting next month, I will begin working on the YUI Storage system again. There has been lots of feedback to incorporate and we need to port it to YUI 3. Look forward to an announcement in the next few months.
