The DOM as State Repository
Posted by Elf Sternberg as Uncategorized
Ingo Schramm, jumping further into the wrangling over whether or not we should move past jQuery into architectures of things like Backbone or Dojo, proposes that we accept that all of this is about state: the state of the page, the state of the session. In his post, MVC, MOVE – Or Simply A State Machine?, he argues the acrimony over acronymic choices comes down to the “simple” realization that we’re talking about state.
Either this is a step back to 1999, or a step forward to Zed Shaw’s vision of a web without OOP.
