Topic: Development - maybe
I am in contact with one of the original xajax developers (CtC) regarding the future of xajax.
Here are some questions from him:
"Where do you want to see the project move? You want to see a .6 release? Want to have better support in terms of answering questions? Implement more built in features? A pre-built library of ready to use components?
I hope you don't mind the questions... I'm just interested in your vision and to know what the community is looking for."
And my response:
"No problem with questions...
I, and a lot of others, would like to see a .6 release more than anything. Seems a lot of users are skittish when it's called a beta release. I have no problem with it.
Personally, I do not see a need for more features. Eventually things will get out of hand and the "footprint" will become huge and require full time support. Too many want to make it a "framework" of sorts. I am retired now and have a lot of time but, like I said earlier, I'm not too comfortable with the jq code. Perhaps the server side.
The pre-built components never seemed to gain a large following.
There have been several calls for the return of the AIO library that combined everything into one file.
The thing is that a lot of people think the project is dead and are looking for something else to replace xajax.
Everyone realizes that keeping a project like this going requires a lot of effort. Realizing that this will draw flames, maybe there should be a small price on it to motivate development.
Perhaps I will post on the forum calling for feature requests."
