Description

dojo has now nano build profile #14392 Please distribute that small loader in CDN and packaged versions because building own version is not what most developers are willing to do.

there should be way to get that small loader. instead of including dojo.js we should have choice to include dojo.min.js like in jquery.

This seems like a reasonable request. It's not really a loader issue, but rather a release build/distribution issue.

Kris, Bill, Dylan, Colin: any opinions on...

  1. What we should name it?
  2. If/how we should market it?

Also, I'm not sure who is in charge of building releases; seems this person should handle this ticket. I think Colin has done a lot of work here and I don't want to intrude.

Well, the ticket summary and description are just talking about a new dojo-min.js file. Are you thinking of that, or a whole new release?

I think this ticket could be solved by just adding a file to the various release packages that include built code. But I also think I've heard Dylan talking about some kind of "dojo nano release" as a bigger strategic effort going forward of which this may be a part. So, I don't know the answer.

Could it be done for 1.9? Its just one more file added to CDN/distro.

I don’t think that there is a strong rationale to spend effort working on this. Despite what the OP says, builds are essential to the process; putting something like this on CDN is likely to cause more harm than good. The existing prebuilt versions of Dojo are problematic enough.
