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.
