Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

In the past, I have been using Dojo Toolkit for relatively little projects. I choose Dojo by its well designed API and its rich and homogeneous set of widgets.jQuery and jQueryUI are great projects, but I found the problem of consistency with jQuery plugins. Each one follow its own rules, each one has its documentation and API, etc.

Because of this, once I know Dojo I chose it as my preferred framework for RIA applications.

Here I would like to present you a short introduction on how to create widgets in Dojo. It is a simply summary of things relate to the widgets creation, it is not a step by step tutorial or code sample:

The presentation is built using the impress.js tool, so I recommend to visualize it using Chrome browser. You can use a recent version of FireFox too, but I see Chrome is the one which make smoothest visualization.

Take a look at the Indigo.Design sample applications to learn more about how apps are created with design to code software.
