Been working on creating an App (very raw testing version) that assists in choosing where someone should go for lunch (or dining anywhere really). Makes heavy use of Yahoo! Local API. Got the basic REST query working, just have to start working on the UI and slick it up a bit. The whole latitude and longitude and distance information returned opens up some pretty cool options.
The ninjas over at Yahoo! released version 2.20 of YUI (Yahoo User Interface). They changed the versioning track, hence the jump from v0.12.2 to v2.20. This release has some really nice additions that I think will be extremely useful for buiding some web apps.
As you probably know most web apps have some serious back/forward button issues in browsers. This release claims to make that work now across A-grade browsers. Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but sounds very promising.
This looks really cool. Adds sorting, searching, inline editing, and adjustment of presentation of a table just to name a few of it’s features. Very cool.
Enables creation of rich buttons that act like traditional form buttons. Labels can differ from their values which is nice.
Yahoo Pipes lets you remix popular feed types using a web based visual editor. Very cool. One of the more sophisticated mashup tools I’ve seen yet.
