Yahoo! UI Library

I posted this in my Tech & Biz Blog, but I figure this is better suited here in the php blog.

Yahoo is working hard to win hearts of the Web 2.0 world. They recently released two new products to their Developer Network.

The first service is the Yahoo UI Library. Many of the innovations of the Web 2.0 are powered by JavaScript. Anyone that has tried to develop a dynamic site using JavaScript will experience many frustrations as they try to make their scripts work cross-platform. It appears that Yahoo understands our pains, and has released a bunch of really cool JavaScript libraries to assist us in creating cool new Web 2.0 technologies.

The second service is a Design Patterns guide for developers. Coming up with the architecture for a new website can be difficult at times, especially when you are dealing with new functionality that you have never before implemented. Yahoo has gathered design patterns to assist us in creating web elements such as Breadcrumbs, Auto-Complete text fields, Drag and Drop page elements, Page Tabs, and Object Pagination. I believe his will be a great resource for all Web 2.0 companies.

Thanks Yahoo!
