Description

Looking through the toolkit, I found that though you guys haven't released a version yet, the code is actually amazingly complete. Props all around :-)

I also noticed that "marketing" dojo is a pretty important aspect to you guys, as all this code would go to waste if noone used it (and that would really be a shame).

That said, wouldn't this be the time to start "selling" dojo to some of the projects out there? Since I've been following WordPress? development, I'll use it as an example. Recently two pieces of AJAXy stuff were added to the WordPress? admin interface:

"Dockable Boxes": http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/2639 "On the fly category creation": http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/2767

Both of these changesets introduced their own little toolkits (wp-admin/dbx.js, and wp-admin/twsack.js).

I assume that the intent is to introduce more dynamic elements into both the admin interface, and later, the actual blog. So based on this assumption, wouldn't it be beneficial for WordPress? to use something like dojo instead of combining various smaller libraries?

I'm not sure if dojo developers have tried approaching individual projects and telling them about dojo, but wouldn't this be a good way to publicize dojo (especially with a high profile project like WordPress??)

Just a thought.. :-)

Erm. So it turns out I'm about a month behind the times?

Forgive me for being a jackass that cannot google "wordpress dojotoolkit" before submitting such a ticket, but I came across this information a bit later..

But if there is work being done to dojoify WP, then why the two additional libraries?
