Radio Liferay Episode 25: Eduardo Lundgren and Zeno Rocha (AlloyUI)

Company Blogs April 18, 2013 By Olaf Kock Staff

 As a preview for AlloyUI was just released (together with the new website) I took the opportunity to have another episode about the UI layer. Luckily two members of the core team, Eduardo Lundgren (with Liferay since 2007/8) and Zeno Rocha (Sep 2012) volunteered. (Eduardo was mentioned already in episode 3 with Nate Cavanaugh, Zeno has joined Liferay since then. Both of them are members of the brazilian team.)

We start with their history and

  • Zeno's project jquery boilerplate. He's also one of the founders of the Brazil JS foundation
  • Rosetta Stone, no longer hidden but very prominent on the website, comparing jQuery, YUI, AlloyUI
  • The traumatic transition time in 2010 between Liferay 5.2 and 6.0, when AlloyUI replaced jQuery
  • How Zeno got assimilated into Liferay
  • The new website for AlloyUI with Tutorials, Examples and Documentation (alloyui.com)
  • What's new in AlloyUI 2.0, when will it come into Liferay?
  • Feedback from the community (portuguese video on youtube)
  • Can I run different versions of YUI on the same site/page (as I can with jQuery within YUI with the help of YQuery)?
  • who else is using AlloyUI or contributing to it?
  • Zeno will be speaking at Jax 2013
  • Honorable mention of the library that YUI is unofficially built on top of.
  • TaglibGenerator: A tool to generate taglibs and integrate them with Javascript/AlloyUI
  • Integration of taglibs into Liferay IDE/Developer Studio (Link to Greg's Episode)
  • AlloyUI on twitter and stackoverflow

If you want to see more from Eduardo and Zeno, they also opened the recent 24 hour webcast "Day of Liferay" and the recording is available (click their names to go directly to the video), or follow @eduardolundgren and @zenorocha
