similar to amd.profile.js added in #14381 we should have a nano.profile.js that demonstrates how to produce a dojo.js that is < 4kb gzipped, minified.

Should we also consider posting the result to the website, to lower the barrier for people to try it out?

I was thinking having it be a CDN available file would be even more important.

comment:5 Changed 9 years ago by ben hockey

it's not a bad idea to make it easily available, we just need to make the caveats very clear

  • certain features don't exist
  • custom build is a better idea (less HTTP requests)
  • etc

Based on discussion on dojo-contribs, here's the "nano" built profile with dojo-config-api and ie-event-behaviour flags still enabled to make it more usable. Full list of features specified rather than minimal set to help users understand what flags are available.

we should leave ie-event-behavior completely out of the profile. by setting it to 1 you're removing the addEventListener (that is, not ie-event-behavior) paths.

i also noticed that with dojo-sniff: 0 there are cases where a user must set the baseUrl - eg if the page is at and the code is at, then the baseUrl needs to be set to /code to work. not sure if we should change the setting but thought it was worth mentioning here in case we build up a list of common gotchas when using this profile.

Good catch Ben, I'll update the profile and add the new attachment.

Is there any reason to not land this in 1.9?

Thanks James and Ben!

I did some quick tests with the built code by also building dijit with copyTests. It was necessary to set the baseUrl (as expected) in the test html files, but they loaded correctly (e.g. Calendar, Calendar Lite).

Fwiw, the resulting loader (dojo.js) is 5K zipped. Not bad with still-a-lot-of-stuff-that-will-go-in-2-point-oh.
