The framework, the "Do you chuck!" is pronounced, looks at a total fun-year-old story. Employees of 11 and GMX have started it at the time as an open source project. Version 1.0 was published at the end of 2009, and the hitherto youngest major version 5 is already six years old. At the beginning of 2019, the team published his tarpaulin for Qooxdoo 6.0, which was largely developed according to the former blog post, but has now used two years to the release.
A migration guide should help switch to the new toolchain. With the Tool QX, developers can not only compile their applications, but also add packages.
On Qooxdoo.org is an online browser with available packages.
New is the Github-based package system, which can be labeled the repository of the version management service by matching tags as QooxDoo extensions.
For further innovations that have been published since the publication of version 5.0.0 are captured in Qooxdoo, the test engine called Test Takers, which can call on the command line and is designed for automated tests in CI / CD pipelines (Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery). In addition, the current release brings a new theme called Tangible, which is inspired by Google’s material design.
With test tappers, test runs can be automated.
Further innovations in QooxDoo 6 can be found in the improvement, which the release referred to as quite stable as the developers have been using the current branch for applications in productive use for a good six years. The source code is available at Github with license.
