DOJO ToolKit with HTML 5 , CSS 3 & JavaScript for iPhone, iPad, Android & BlackBerry

DOJO Toolkit is an open source framework library well known for mobile web development close to native mobile applications for iPhone, iPad,BlackBerry, Android devices. It has close support for PhoneGap & renders controls with JavaScript , CSS 3 with HTML 5. It expects all features of Mobile Webkit browsers like Offline Cache, Browser manifest, local storage & isolation storage for mobile browsers etc.

  • So , It’s just another feather of JQTouch , Sencha Touch , JQuery Mobile but it has some of it’s unique features like Native Mobile application support like Google Maps with Location track, Enterprise Charts for Mobile, Mobile Gauge etc.
  • DOJO Toolkit initially is a project of Sun MicroSystems as open source DHTML based Ajax functionality with DOM support but later it’s divided into JavaScript, Ajax, HTML 5 , CSS 3 different features & provides native app support for mobile web 2.0
  • Though initial it’s support was based on Eclipse IDE of Java but I was keen to explore it’s features in my favourite IDE Visual Studio. So Download the toolkit from   & extract it foundation files in three parts :

  •     Now , Add all the three folders of DOJO Toolkit “dijit, dojo, dojox” in Visual Studio Solution explorer & including “Show All Files” “include all the files in project”.
  •    Now start code by adding a new .aspx or .htm page with DOJO toolkit for Ajax, HTML 5, CSS 3, Google Ajax CDN, Mobile browser Webkit.

Sample Code:

<!DOCTYPE htmlPUBLIC“-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN””&gt;

<html xmlns=””&gt;


<script type=”text/javascript”src=”dojoroot/dojo/dojo.js”

djConfig=”parseOnLoad: true, isDebug: false”></script>

<script language=”javascript”type=”text/javascript”>



dojo.requireIf(!dojo.isWebKit, “”);
