Dojo is an Open Source JavaScript toolkit that makes it easier to create Ajax/DHTML applications for browsers with modern, attractive user interfaces. Dojo is included with Domino 8.5 and with Dojo you can quickly and easily improve browser applications that use the traditional Domino Form/View design architecture.

  • install and locate the Dojo library files on the Domino Server and include them in a design element such as a Form or Page
  • install a newer version of Dojo concurrent to the older version installed on and used by other Domino applications
  • use key functions in the base Dojo library file to interact with the browser’s DOM nodes, manipulate JavaScript objects, load additional Dojo libraries when needed, run code only after all the Dojo modules have loaded, validate user entries, and fetch Domino data
  • debug applications that use Dojo and JavaScript using the console log and Mozilla FireBug
  • convert Domino fields to Dijit widgets
