jQuery UI Download Builder/ThemeRoller Status

Posted on by

NOTICE: The Download Builder and ThemeRoller have been restored to working order again.  Thank you all for your patience.

We are aware of the problems with the Download Builder and ThemeRoller and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.  We have disabled those components on our web site until the problems with these components can be resolved.  In the meantime, we would like to offer these static links for jQuery UI and jQuery UI Themes.  The Development bundle includes code for all jQuery UI plugins and the base theme.  The Themes Package includes all 21 pre-built themes from the ThemeRoller gallery.

Multiple stable versions of jQuery UI are hosted on Google’s CDN as well as all the ThemeRoller themes for 1.7.2: base, black-tie, blitzer, cupertino, dark-hive, dot-luv, eggplant, excite-bike, flick, hot-sneaks, humanity, le-frog, mint-choc, overcast, pepper-grinder, redmond, smoothness, south-street, start, sunny, swanky-purse, trontastic, ui-darkness, ui-lightness, vader.

This Week in jQuery UI vol. 7

Posted on by

A couple days late to press this week. Friday and Saturday were filled with the first ever JavaScript Conference, JSConf 2009. What a weekend! jQuery UI was represented by Scott González and myself (Richard Worth). Scott gave a presentation on creating a widget using the jQuery UI widget factory. I did an introduction to jQuery UI.

Releases

I mentioned the jQuery UI 1.6 release last week as it was available for download. Now the full changelog and blog post are out.

Next up is 1.7.2. We made some progress on that during the sprint. A few more issues to wrap up, and that should be out this week. Speaking of the sprint, thanks to all that participated.

Design & Development

With 1.6 finalized and 1.7 nearing a freeze, the jQuery UI team is shifting focus to 1.8 and beyond. With the recent plugin prioritization, we updated the planned plugins list on the Dev & Planning wiki home. Our focus is currently on the high priority plugins. Please take a look at those plugin pages and see if we’ve missed anything. If you have ideas about each plugin’s requirements, design, or specifications, feel free to edit the page, or leave a comment. If you’ve don’t have a wiki account, there’s a link at the top to request access. We’d love your input.

Sites Using jQuery UI

We maintain a list of Sites Using jQuery UI. If you have a site or find a site using jQuery UI, feel free to add it to this wiki page. New this week:

Sites

Open source projects

  • Osimo – A jQuery/jQuery UI enhanced forum system

jQuery UI Worldwide Sprint: Now scheduled for April 17 & 18

Posted on by

The jQuery UI Team is pleased to announce its second Worldwide sprint, to take place this Friday April 17th and Saturday 18th, 2009. Two full days of testing, fixes, documentation, and general getting-stuff-done. Our goal is ready the 1.7.2 release, so we can start focusing on 1.8 and beyond, and we invite any and all to help. Whether you have an hour, or an afternoon, come and run really fast with us.

How Will It Work?

We’ll all gather in IRC (#jqueryui-sprint on freenode) throughout the two-day sprint, with a couple of scheduled meetings to keep everyone on the same page, and make sure things keep moving. Other than that we’ll just be doing as much as we can, as fast as we can. Opening tickets, closing tickets, breaking stuff, fixing other things, and everyone’s favorite pastime: documentation (and demos). Take a look at last year’s sprint page to see what we accomplished.

I’m New Here. Can I Help?

Absolutely. If you’ve thought about contributing to jQuery or jQuery UI before, but never really found the right moment or momentum, this sprint is the perfect time to get involved. A number of members of the jQuery UI Team will be around to help people get started, especially if it’s your first time. We’ll help you help us, in whatever way you want. That could be testing, documentation, ticket triage, bug fixes, writing demos, contributing to the planning wiki or even just playing with new stuff as we churn it out, and providing valuable feedback.

More Details

We’ve created a wiki page to help coordinate this big event. It has some more details on what is planned, how to jump in, and will be updated throughout the sprint to show status and next steps.

Tell us you’re coming!

We invite you to add your name to the wiki page as a participant, if you’re interested, even if you have only a few hours (or aren’t sure how much time you’ll have). Also, feel free to specify what you’re willing and/or able to do. Thanks!
