Low Pro JQ
----------
Author: Dan Webb (dan@danwebb.net)
GIT: github.com:danwrong/low-pro-for-jquery.git
Download: http://github.com/danwrong/low-pro-for-jquery/tree/master/src/lowpro.jquery.js?raw=true
A jQuery port of the Low Pro behavior framework that was originally written for Prototype.
In brief
--------
Create a behavior as a class:
Testy = $.klass({
initialize: function(arg) {
alert('ive just been attached with the arg ' + arg);
},
onclick: function() {
alert('ive been clicked');
}
});
Btw, $.klass is a full port of Prototype's Class.create so youget that as a bonus and
can use all the inheritance stuff in the same way.
Next, attach the behavior on DOM ready in the jQuery way:
jQuery(function($) {
$('p').attach(Testy, 'My arg');
});
Alternatively, if you just need to attach behaviors and get references to the behavior instances
created then you can use:
$('a').attachAndReturn(Clicky, 45) //=> Array of behavior instances
Aside from this everything works the same as Low Pro for Prototype.
See http://www.danwebb.net/lowpro for details.
!!New Syntax!!
-------------
$.ux.behavior("Testy", {
initialize: function() {
alert(this.options.woot);
},
onclick: function() {
alert('ive been clicked');
}
});
$.ux.Testy.defaults = { woot: "wahoo!" }
$('p').attach(Testy, { woot: "pwned" })
Livequery support
-----------------
If the livequery plugin is found then Low Pro will use it to automatically bind behaviors to
newly created content so if, taking the above example, you did something like:
$(document.body).append('<p>A new para</p>')
Then it too would get a behavior binded to it.
Acknowledgements
----------------
The $.klass code is a direct port of the Class.create code from Prototype (http://prototypejs.org).
