The jQuery community has provided thousands of useful plugins which can be stitched together to create exceptional websites. However, organizing those plugins, tracking their upstream changes and managing dependencies can become a nightmare with a system to help you manage. JavascriptMVC, and specifically its new version 3 release, provides a framework for organizing outside code, integrating it into your workflow and compressing down to a single output javascript file. This talk will focus on taking external plugins such as jQuery Tools, jQuery UI and other popular plugins and creating a workflow for building larger applications from these components. I will show how to use the JavascriptMVC “getter” and “pluginify” scripts to pull external resources. With JavascriptMVC 3, css and javascript can be packaged together creating truly convenient widgets. I will also demonstrate how often-used pieces of functionality can be abstracted into plugins and shared with the general community via Github.
