Description

The Dijit Theme Tester is an awesome way for a user to get a quick look at the various dijits. It's a shame that there is no easy way to get to it from the documentation on the website.

From brainstorming with phiggins and nonken on twitter, a good spot for it is on the dijit reference page, perhaps inside a CodeGlass?.

We had talked about a widget gallery, or Dijit at a glance, likely using CodeGlass?, and something like what Shane had a while ago, but even simpler. Something more along the lines of ExtJS gallery http://www.extjs.com/products/js/. This ought to be one click away from the home page, imo.

I'd say the theme tester is 'good enough for now'. It could use some polish to indicate fully qualified dijit names in certain places. Surely it's worth including until a formal 'dijit at a glance' page is done.

I'll do this as part of the rst directive. We need a way to inline a static test/ page

eg:

.. test-popup :: dijit/themes/themeTester.html

Which will load the page into a codeglassthing at the src?

pardon my ignorance, but how does one navigate to that page? The widgets link has a nav bar that doesn't match what's on the rest of the site, so I'm thinking perhaps it's orphaned?

Putting back to 'high' because I see no obvious way to navigate to a sampling "live" widgets directly off the main site (short of going through the docs and looking at examples) This is really important. People who want to find out what Dijit may not have the patience to go that far.

fair comment... i hadn't noticed there was no link to get to that page. would the "See it in Action" link at http://dojotoolkit.org/features/desktop be enough to close this ticket?

personally, I think that button is lame (and ugly) I, for one hadn't noticed it. The content ought to be inline, the way widgets should be, not off on some dedicated page with no integration to the site. IMHO. And the (orphaned?) widgets/ page should be integrated or removed.

I've added a see Dojo in action set of links to the home page, which includes the theme tester, demos, and recent case studies.

This ticket will be closed for now... it will be considered as part of a site revamp for Dojo 2.0.
