Protaculous in Solar

Clay Loveless has started adding Prototype/Scriptaculous support in Solar as a series of view helpers. Although I’ve been calling it this in my notes for months, I wanted to share with the world my shorthand for this library combination: “Protaculous.” That is all. 🙂

Are you stuck with a legacy PHP application? You should buy my book because it gives you a step-by-step guide to improving your codebase, all while keeping it running the whole time.

  1. I think it will be better if you guys add support for xajax which:
    “is an open source PHP class library that allows you to easily create powerful, web-based, Ajax applications”.
    Xajax provides much more than the flashy effects of Scriptaculous


  2. Hi vivpuri — we’re building it so you can have different helper sets for different libraries. The Prototype library has one helper interface, the Scriptaculous helper has a second. There’s every reason to think we should be able to add separate Dojo, Xajax, or other helpers as they become necessary or popular.

  3. Grandma always said that a poultice of sweetgum sap and turpentine would cure a bad case of Protaculous, though it only works when there’s a full moon out. During the rest of the month, you can only carry a piece of tarnished silver in your left pocket and hope for the best.
