CCATP #465 – Bart Busschots Programming By Stealth 25 – Case Study of a JavaScript API

PBS_Logo.pngBart gave me another two weeks to get my homework done on Programming By Stealth and brings us a case study of how to create a JavaScript API on Github. He uses a real life example of a small, open source library he released over the weekend called barfificer.linkTookit.js. This library includes many of the bits and pieces we’ve been working on in Programming By Stealth, how to add a rel of no opener on all links with a target of _blank (the ones that open in a new tab) and adding a little icon in the url to politely tell the reader that you’ll be navigating away from the page you’re on. It’s a great lesson in the structure of how Github works and even more importantly how it automatically creates beautiful documentation from Markdown comments in the code.
