The first major contribution from this group has been promoted to the "public" space for general use, with the following commands being added to site and siteutil directories:
  • site.newPortal(funcName): create a new Portal that will contain portlets
  • site.addCmdToPortlet(portlet): a form for adding any wubhub command to portletData
  • site.resetDefaultContent(portlet): overwrites portlet with contents from 'portlet'+"Default" function.

  • siteutil.addCmdToPortalCmd: adds new content to portletData
  • siteutil.portlet: Executes and renders all cmds in portletData
  • siteutil.portalRenderDragableFrames: Render function using AJAX portlets
  • siteutil.dragableFramesCSS: supporting style sheet
  • siteutil.dragableFramesJS: supporting Javascript
We look forward to additional contributions from this group towards improving WubHub through AJAX/DHTML technologies!

Cross browser!

I have recently made a few fixes that allows the ajax portlets to work on IE, Mozilla, Firefox, Safari (MAC) and Opera. I have also added a "readonly=true" flag to allow portlets that can't be repositioned.

To do next:

  • Implement a SAVE command to allow the positions to be recorded
  • Implement a multi-column size window
