  • 1.2 alpha released: http://jquerymobile.com/blog/2012/08/01/announcing-jquery-mobile-1-2-0-alpha/
    • Great reaction so far, no major issues reported
    • We will continue to make smaller improvements and fixes next week as we wait for people to test
    • Try to get to final in 3-4 weeks max
  • Upgraded to the 1.9 widget factory
  • Many utilities are decoupled from core dependencies. Touch events, orientationchange, and virtual mouse bindings from jQM can be used standalone with the download builder are now 7k min/2.8kb gzip'd.
  • Roadmap: next
  • Working on a new logo for the project, concepts to be circulated soon

link Ghislain Seguin

  • Builder seems to stop working randomly, have to investigate
  • Should we re-introduce $.support.touch? issue #4786 - was removed as part of decoupling, will do some analysis and try to bring this back for the next 1.2 release.
  • Listview filter improvements - landed post-1.2 alpha
    • Add a demo showing how to use these to build an autocomplete?
  • One more listview improvement to land: issue #4133

link John Bender

  • TestSwarm IE
  • Slider Cleanup
  • Slider Perf (needs testing)
  • 1.3 goals: Performance suite

link Gabriel Schulhof

  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4419 - the new widget factory has this._on() which nicely prevents memory leaks caused by stale attached event handlers, however, we should implement _destroy() on our widgets, because handlers attached to elements introduced during widget creation need not be removed if the elements are removed.
  • Write tests for the various funky-initial-URL cases - need a way to test when nav jumps to a page that does not have jQM
  • Post-1.2:

link Jasper de Groot

link Anne-Gaelle Colom

  • Not gone on holiday yet after all... so:
  • Added inline examples to api docs: slider, switch collapsibles, collapsible set, and select. Also completed some of those with missing info.
  • Added inline examples to api docs: select (still have to adjust the iframe sizes for those)
  • Corrected boolean options that were using double quotes in the docs.
  • helped release 1.2.0-alpha.1 (docs code changes) and minor changes elsewhere...

jQuery Mobile Team Meeting – Jul 26 2012

  • Attending: Todd Parker, John Bender, Ghislain Seguin, Gabriel Schulhof, Jasper de Groot, Anne-Gaelle Colom, Jason Scott

link Ghislain Seguin

  • Slowly getting back into things
  • Looking at plugins .jquery.json file generation that Bender wrote. Adding metadata extraction
  • Next up: listview filter issues

link Gabriel Schulhof

  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4649
  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4727 Do we want an event "popupbeforeclose" triggered from close() which, if default-prevented, will not close the popup? May have ugly implications for nav, because we need to go forward, back to the popup when the user clicks back. So, we’ll behave like one of those annoying redirects where you can no longer access your browser history by simply clicking back. Decision: wait until post-1.2 to look at this, could be complex with the nav model
  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4723 Reposition: Seems decent now, let's test on many different devices, and close this bug.
  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4595 changeHash: false pages are skipped over during navigation - we can close this, because we agreed that we won't do anything about this, right?
  • Test the living daylights out of popups, because I
    • pushed a lot of code restructuring changes
    • made it center to window upon orientationchange
  • Pie-in-the-sky:
    • Suspend pagebeforechange using deferred(s). Helps integration with other frameworks, because we give devs a chance to await the completion of async ops before we display the page that needs the result of those ops.
    • Cookie-based do-not-navigate-outside-jQM unit tests. Test combinations of opening dialogs, pages, popups, pages from dialogs, pages from popups, dialogs from popups, popups from dialogs, etc., and make sure the navigation doesn’t go to a page outside the portion of browser history covered by the current nstance of jQuery mobile.

link Jasper de Groot

link Anne-Gaelle Colom

  • finished collapsible and checkboxes in api docs with inline examples - up to 9 widgets documented in the new XML standard
  • now need to add inline examples to select, radio buttons, collapsible sets, search input, switch, slider and dialog
  • Need to discuss jQuery html standard
  • Raised some issues with the jQuery UI team regarding the API site (code highlighting, NAN in code line numbering). 1st issue is fixed. 2nd will be soon.
  • http://code.jquery.com/mobile/latest/jquery.mobile.js still old (16th July)
  • Discussed jsbin with Remy Sharp. We can now view jQuery Mobile code in Output panel, except in FF. Remy has filed a bug report with Mozilla to get this sorted: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=777526
  • Will be on holiday from tomorrow and will be on/off internet. Highly likely that I will not be online next thursday for the meeting. I will be online again around 8th August - 23rd August. Then off again and finally back at work on the 6th

jQuery Mobile Team Meeting – Jul 12 2012

  • Attending: Todd Parker, John Bender, Gabriel Schulhof, Jasper de Groot, Anne-Gaelle Colom

link Todd

  • Download builder - released
  • Device donation page - done
  • 1.1.1 final - released today!
  • 1.2 alpha - final tweaks underway, hoping for alpha late next week
    • code review (Bender and Ghislain) - done
    • speed: takes 1-2 seconds to open the most minimal popup which is too slow. Suggestion: change the default transition to “none” from “fade” which seems to go much faster. Look for other optimizations.
    • default styling - done (thanks Jasper!)
    • add position option to center the popup over various thing (link, window, selector)
      • data-position-to=”origin|window|selector”
      • origin is the default (the link you click to open it)
    • Android 2.3.x nav issue (Gabriel) - fixed
    • Gabriel to look at dealing with the nav dependency with popup to remove this requirement, may be added post alpha but before RC
    • Add 3 events for popup to hook into popups for customization
      • "popupbeforeopen", "popupafteropen" and "popupafterclose"
    • change log in progress (thanks mauriceG) - http://test.jqmobile.de/commit12a.html
  • Site re-templating for the conference - met with Richard, Todd is working on porting over the static pages, Richard to port the blog, then we need to make CSS changes
  • Roadmap - Todd to start sketching out based on UI discussion
    • UI and mobile will stay separate for foreseeable future
    • Share a lot of code and infrastructure between projects

  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4595 We publicly support changePage with changeHash: false, but we don't support navigating to the page inserted with changeHash: false We could document that, if people do push pages into urlHistory with changeHash: false, then they're on their own, or we could help them out by displaying the last page in a changeHash: false sequence when going back, and displaying the last changeHash: true page when navigating forward, like so:

███: page added with changeHash: true
▒▒▒: page added with changeHash: false
  • Images inside popup: Let's provide an "opening" signal to give app devs the opportunity to size the popup contents before the in-transition starts.
  • Work on making unit tests pass in FF.

  • just done some triage and bug fixing
  • popop: issue with image max-height - we have to discuss this

  • Down to 350 issues (from 600) and 12 PR’s (down from 50+) in the last 2 months
  • Site re-templating for the conference - met with Richard, Todd is working on porting over the static pages, Richard to port the blog, then we need to make CSS changes
  • Download builder alpha for conference - ready to go
  • Device donation page by conference so we can announce - Todd to-do
  • 1.1.1 beta for conference with hopefully a quick move to RC status
    • Consider asking for testing next week via branch preview
    • Todd needs to write the blog post
    • Outstanding items:
    • Opera 12 broken navigation - team to discuss option later
    • listview click performance (ready to land + benchmark) - todo
    • blinky transitions in PhoneGap (re-opened for review) - Todd tested latest in a webview and doesn’t seem blinky, even with fixed toolbars but only tested with fade. More investigation needed
    • update page padding - Closed, fixes landed by Jasper
    • unable to close dialog in webview - Closed, Bender posted a workaround in the issue
    • IE submit button - Closed, fixes landed by Jasper
  • 1.2 alpha for conference - popup items
    • code review (Bender and Ghislain)
    • speed: takes 1-2 seconds to open the most minimal popup on the iPad 3 - feels too slow. Investigate why
    • default styling - padding needs help (Jasper + Todd)
    • dialogs in popups blow out content width, needs refinement. (Jasper + Todd)

  • Popup
    • code reviewed
    • tweaks to follow
    • discussion on popup stacks
  • Preso work this week
  • Base tag issues next

link Gabriel Schulhof

  • Proposals:
  • This could help us fix 3635, because controlgroup wouldn’t need to access button classes directly, instead calling .buttonMarkup({corners: ”left”}), etc., thus cooperating with reusable buttonMarkup, such that if you later call e.g. .buttonMarkup({icon: ”another-icon”}) on a button that is part of the controlgroup it won’t mess up the button’s corners as a side effect.

link Jasper de Groot

  • Finished with updatePagePadding
  • Finished with IE buttons
  • Improved focus style
  • Created PR to make slider widget independent from textinput widget
    • Q: do all widgets need to be completely independent, also the CSS? (all button CSS in core?)
  • Did some triage
  • Fixed a few minor CSS issues I noticed myself

link Anne-Gaelle Colom

  • Met with Todd and Richard on 15th June to get all setup to produce the new website
  • 19 PRs and 18 commits on the docs.

  • Tab issues: Get tab navigation to work. Try to keep tab inside popup - futile. scroll to 0 when dismissing a popup opened from another popup - prevented, but there was a flash (looks like briefly scrolling back to 0). FF is fine. Is the flash still present?
  • Link blurring performance (4340) - not likely to be able to do the perf tests.
  • Proposals:
    • Link can open popup from another page (agcolom)? IOW, if user clicks link button and the popup referred to by href has not been enhanced, enhance it? If the popup is on another page, it's not a good idea because the other page has display: none set and the popup is its child, but if the popup is inside the body, it can be enhanced at first-click time.
    • .buttonMarkup({corners: }) accepts true, false, and now also "tl", "tr", ..., "left", "right", etc. https://github.com/gabrielschulhof/jquery-mobile/commit/f49abba3d0d3ee5f490d778ead3b705392fabbee and http://babulina.go-nix.ca/nix/jqm-buttonMarkup-corners/tests/functional/button-markup.html

    link Download builder

    link jQM Modularity

    • I’ve heard a bunch of questions recently about how monolithic the library is. I know we’ve done a lot of decoupling work internally and now have the download builder which will help quite a bit.

    • Modularity questions: how much make we break things up for consumption:

      • Only want utilities like touch events, zoom fix, orientation (not yet?)
      • Want a specific subset of widgets and transitions (yes)
      • Only want certain widgets, no nav model (yes)
      • Only want nav model/transitions, no widgets or CSS framework (yes)
    • I’d like to do some analysis for LOE and see if we should focus on this for 1.3.

    • All modules use $.mobile - requires core

    • Also jQ core dependencies to consider - tree shaking to see how much we use

    • What is core? What is a module?

    link Timing

    1.1.1 rc1 - conference? 1.2.0 alpha/beta - conference?

    link Multi-view (tablet) layout Q’s from Sven

    • Quick update:

    I'm sort of done with my new multiview version. Some minor stuff left to do, but I worked out the main obstalces in tapping into JQM navigation and urlHistory to handle all panel transitions. I tested in IE8 and on iPad iOS 3 yesterday, which both worked, so I'm pretty happy with it. I will try to finish up in the next couple of weeks and set up a new multiview demo, too.

    The plugin now only requires 4 changes in JQM. If you have the time and any idea how I could get by without changing the following, I'd try to work this into multiview to stay "JQM tweak free" (I could also do a pull request on Github with the changes, if that's easier than via email...

    Thanks & best regards,

    Sven

    • JQM changes:

    link ThemeRoller - 3rd party tools

    • All sorts of web apps or software tools may want to integrate ThemeRoller functionality - how to make this as seamless as possible w/o hooking in too deeply?

    • Current idea: Support a lightweight round trip theme solution that lets a 3rd party tool have a button that would launch TR in a new window/iframe. This could either be a default TR theme (Create new theme) or it could support editing by pushing in a theme (via the import mechanism) so the theme would appear in TR, ready for modification. In TR, allow the Download button to be customized in appearance (Save to App X + icon) and the 3rd party tool would write a handler to manage the manipulation and saving of the TR output on their side. We'd just provide the hooks in and out so this would be a new API for developers to use TR without forking it and making a custom build.

    • Tyler needs to do more work on the versioning side of things to support this. The guys from Codiqa have volunteered to help with some of the engineering and to be the test case for this to help us work out the kinks. This would launch as an open platform and others tools can help participate in shaping this as we go.

    jQuery Mobile Team Meeting – May 17 2012

    link jQM Modularity

    • I’ve heard a bunch of questions recently about how monolithic the library is. I know we’ve done a lot of decoupling work internally and now have the download builder which will help quite a bit.

    • Modularity questions: how much make we break things up for consumption:

      • Only want utilities like touch events, zoom fix, orientation (not yet?)
      • Want a specific subset of widgets and transitions (yes)
      • Only want certain widgets, no nav model (yes)
      • Only want nav model/transitions, no widgets or CSS framework (yes)
    • I’d like to do some analysis for LOE and see if we should focus on this for 1.3.

    • All modules use $.mobile - requires core

    • Also jQ core dependencies to consider - tree shaking to see how much we use

    • What is core? What is a module?

    • Changes to discuss

      • Modal overlay screen - default to none, only show if data-overlay-theme option is set to a swatch letter✓
      • Remove "Fade" as an option and just fade in overlay screen if one is specified, CSS override of keyframes if needed✓
      • Popup container - inherits the theme from the parent page by default, data-theme attr can be set to a swatch letter or to "none" to have the container have an invisible background (just won't write in the ui-content-a/b/c class)✓
      • Popup won't have any padding by default to let widgets like lists (menus), photos, etc. be edgeless. To add padding, recommend people add the "ui-content" class to the popup wrapper add the standard 15px of page padding or write custom styles as needed
      • Corner classes are a bit tricky with nested edgeless elements. Ex. if a inset list is inside a popup, will the corners look ok?
      • Popup transition. Use the same fallback mechanism as the dialogs >> create a utility that is used for both dialogs and popups. Factor out the mechanism (which is currently inline inside a function in navigation.js) into a public function: degradedTransition = $.mobile.maybeDegradeTransition( originalTransition ); It need not be public - but the little dance it does with looking up the transition in a hash of fallbacks is kind of important, and I don't want to copy/paste that code into popup.✓
      • Add an example of how to add a close button, like dialog, false by default = data-close-btn=”true”. Note that if we add this, we’ll also need a data-close-btn-text=”Close popup” option for accessibility and a11y. https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4267#issuecomment-5492106
        • Q: Dialog doesn’t have an option currently to not write in the close button, add this feature there for consistency? Probably
      • The custom select should also be ported over to use popup as part of 1.2. Need to create a ticket. Any other widgets that could be ported over? - https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4329
