At the Forge - Dojo
This is a relevant point even before you download Dojo, because the download site requires that you choose which combination of features you prefer to use. Knowing that my server is on a relatively high-speed line, that my sites tend to be relatively lightweight and that I plan to explore Dojo as a developer, I installed the “everything” version, labeled as kitchen sink on the download site. But, if you are interested in Dojo solely for its rich-text editor, or for use in Ajax or charting, you might want to download one of the many smaller versions, each identified by the subset of Dojo's functionality it covers. For the purposes of this column, however, I assume you also have downloaded the kitchen sink version.
At the time of this writing, Dojo is at version 0.4.1, and the kitchen sink version is available from the URL download.dojotoolkit.org/release-0.4.1/dojo-0.4.1-kitchen_sink.tar.gz.
Once you have downloaded the file, unpack it:
tar -zxvf dojo-0.4.1-kitchen_sink.tar.gz
And, indeed, we can load Dojo into our Web pages using the standard <script> tag:
Although the above loads dojo.js into the browser's memory, this does not mean all of Dojo's commands are now available. Rather, including dojo.js makes it possible for us to load one or more of Dojo's individual packages. You can think of dojo.js as a bootloader, in that its only purpose is to make Dojo available to you later on, rather than to perform any tasks on its own.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
