    dojo

    This is the foundation package for the Dojo 1 Toolkit. While still being maintained, new development is primarily focused on modern Dojo.

    Checkout the Dojo framework website or if you want a more detailed technical status and overview, checkout the Dojo roadmap.

    This package is sometimes referred to as the “core”, it contains the most generally applicable sub-packages and modules. The dojo package covers a wide range of functionality like Ajax, DOM manipulation, class-type programming, events, promises, data stores, drag-and-drop and internationalization libraries.

    Installing

    Installation instructions are available at dojotoolkit.org/download.

    Getting Started

    If you are starting out with Dojo, the following resources are available to you:

    What to Use Dojo For and When to Use It

    The following is a brief sampling of some of the areas where Dojo may prove to be the right tool for your next project:

    • For keeping your code fast and maintainable, Dojo offers an asynchronous module definition (AMD) loader -- encapsulating pieces of code into useful units, loading small JavaScript files only when they are needed, and loading files separately even when they are dependent on one another.

    • When you want to easily extend existing classes, share functionality among a number of classes, and maximize code reuse, Dojo provides class-like inheritance and “mixins.”

    • For creating advanced and customizable user interfaces out of refined, efficient, and modular pieces, Dojo’s Dijit framework offers several dozen enterprise-ready widgets -- including buttons, textboxes, form widgets with built-in validation, layout elements, and much more -- along with themes to lend them a consistent look. All of this is available for mobile environments as well.

    • For working with advanced vector graphics, Dojo’s GFX API can render graphics in a wide variety of formats, with support for seamless manipulation (skewing, rotating, resizing), gradients, responding to mouse events, and more.

    • The dojox/charting library supports powerful data visualization and dynamic charting, including a variety of 2D plots and animated charting elements.

    • When you need feature-rich, lightweight, and mobile-friendly grids/tables, Dojo offers the dgrid widget, along with customizable default themes and accompanying features such as in-cell editing, row/cell selection, column resizing/reordering, keyboard handling, pagination, and more.

    • Dojo is the officially supported framework for the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, one of the most widely used enterprise-grade APIs for web mapping and spatial analysis -- learning to use Dojo will open doors to creating richer web mapping applications using that API.
