Vanilla and Scriptaculous (Read it Mark :P)

edited April 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Ok, so I'm working on an extension which uses the prototype/effects library. But when checking the javascript files I came to notice they are kind of old! I could add the files to my extension, but shouldn't it be updated in the core?

How to deal with this? :)

    i mentioned this to him as well. and his reply was he wants to get ride of prototype/scriptaculous from vanilla in favour of something better. He hasn't decided on what that might be. I'm betting jquery, but u never know
    with jquery 1.1.3 just about to come out, Resig said that he is overhauling the animation and effect library of jquery plus speed improvement to its selectors.

    I found no problem after updating theses files to more recent release.
    You can file them with you extension or give instructions for updating.

    I guess I'll just upgrade them with the next release...

    FYI, might be worth checking out the compressed versions of these scripts (to cut down on file sizes):

    I'd advise against using the compressed versions, as most web servers can be (are?) configured to serve content with gzip compression enabled. Browsers handle and decompress these files automatically.

    There are so many more things to think about other than file size when dealing with serving speed:

    I'm an advocate of Mootools, despite it's prima donna developer, but it'd require a lot of rewriting of the AJAX sort of parts of Vanilla.
