justjs: node.js tutorials

New here? You might want to start at the beginning.

Hey, where did you go?

Just checking in to give folks an update on what's happening with justjs.

Three things are going on, in descending order of importance:

  1. I'm getting married on Saturday! I'm busy getting ready for that long-awaited occasion and the honeymoon to follow. So justjs is running a bit behind schedule.
  2. The next installment will use Backbone... which means a complete rewrite of the blog. This is exciting. It also means it's taken a bit longer than the average installment.
  3. I am ready to throw CKEditor out the window of a very, very tall building. If I never see the words "Cannot call method setHtml of null" again, it will be much too soon.

So when I get back from snorkeling in Ambergris Caye, I will be ditching CKEditor, probably in favor of jWYSIWYG, and wrapping up the next installment of justjs.

In the meantime, I suggest you check out backbone.js. Because as fast as node is, there's still no reason to make your users wait for the browser itself to create a new universe on every page of your application. Backbone is where sanity and AJAX meet. I'm excited. But not as excited as I am about Roberta Susan Petusky. No offense, folks.
