Tools for Web Developers. Yahoo gives away some free stuff for people who want to get into Ajax Development. This seems like a nice addition to the other libraries already available.

This is good, and it's nice that they're giving stuff back to the open source community. I've always poo-poo'd yahoo, but in my opinion, this gives them mucho whuffie.

Yeah, I think this is great. Anyone want to help code asynchronous calls to the db on MeFi?

Their design pattern library also has tons of interesting stuff.

mathowie: I will! Seriously, that'd be a fun (if a bit extensive) project. Why don't you organize it?

I'd like to help, too.

Yahoo's graded browser support and table of browser grades explain their concept of browser support.

TIBCO has just released a free version of the General Interface AJAX toolkit as well.

It's not just AJAX, there's a lot of animation, interaction and general UI/DOM stuff too.

Can you pick and choose, or is there just a vast library that you have to append to your site?

Both: "You can download the Yahoo! UI Library as a complete package or use only the components you need."

Boy, there's some kick-ass stuff out there in javascript. I had no idea.

Now all you html developers can come under the opprobium that us flash developers have had to deal with for daring to make stuff move.....

Lumpenprole: The problem with flash is that its not accessible, not semandtic, not standards compliant, and not indexible.

The animation is not the problem.
