JavaScript Design Patterns - My Crazy Plan

03-19-2013 4,328 views JavaScript 6 Comments

I've been toying with an idea for a while now, and I kinda figured if I blogged it, I'd be more motivated to actually do it. I'm currently reading "Learning JavaScript Design Patterns" (associate link below!) by Addy Osmani. I plan on posting a review of it once done. In the meantime though, I'd like to work up some examples of the patterns in "real" applications. Obviously I don't mean client work per se, but, something a bit more concrete than a sample in the book. I'm not sure I can accomplish this for every pattern in the book, but I think it might be fun to try. I don't make any assumptions about how good these examples will be. To be honest, I mainly want to do this to just help me learn the concepts a bit better. But my hope is that it can help others as well.

    Good idea! This has also been done for Javascript PureMVC frameworks: I am curious what you come up with.

    Looking forward to it too as this is something I've been looking into in terms of having a consistent JavaScript development style thought our teams e.g. Module pattern.

    Just bought the book so I might follow along... I write a lot of Javascript - but it's definitely the slowest development work I do, anything I might learn to write it faster/better & get it into production would improve my bottom line - so thank for picking up this albatross.

    Go get 'em Ray! I'll be particularly interested in the jQuery sections...

    Good thinking. You already started doing? I'm interested in helping out... maybe we could create a github together for this? Only read some parts of the book online. But would like to delve deeper too.
    Already read 2 java minded pattern book though.


    ps: I hope you can see my email... otherwise just google jochen szostek or so... :) grts

    To be clear, this is something I want to do myself. Not that I don't want to share - and I definitely want people to comment/criticize/etc, but this exercise is my way of figuring stuff out. Know what I mean? I look at GitHub as a place to share projects, things that will be ongoing. This is simply an education process for me.

    Does that make sense?
