News Roundup: Traits, Scriptsrc.net, and more
We’re trying something new here at JSMag: in addition to the monthly news column in the magazine, we’ll be featuring a weekly roundup of news here on the blog. We’ve got some great stuff to talk about this week, so let’s dive in.
The library uses a lot of the awesome new ECMAScript 5 object-manipulation API (a good discussion of which you can find here) Better still, it works with both ECMAScript 3 as well as ES5, so while it conforms to the new standard, it is still fully functional in older ES implementations.
If you’re interested in this stuff, you can see a very in-depth tech talk (video, slides) that goes into a fair bit of detail about Traits.js. Also, there was a lengthy discussion of traits this week on the es-discuss mailing list.
