Adobe Labs Spry Framework for AJAX – friendly to use, but poor support for standards.Skip to comment form
(October 2007: It should be noted that since this assessment, the Spry Framework has undergone revision. We are currently assessing the newest version and will report our findings.)
On the subject of custom attributes, Adobe’s Donald Booth responds:
We were trying to stay away from custom attributes for validation reasons. But, there was no way to implement
if...thenstatements with out one. And we were defining the datasets within the class attribute. This was troublesome, and since we were already breaking validation with the
if...then, we decided to go to all custom attributes.
Replace “breaking validation” with “breaking our customers’ pages” at your own discretion.
Of course, Spry is just a preview and Adobe are actively soliciting feedback. As it currently stands, the framework is certainly not ready for prime-time, and if it’s the sort of framework you’d otherwise find useful, we’d encourage you to investigate it and offer constructive feedback.
