Please switch and I promise you’ll see more updates.


Ok, I’ve been keeping an eye on this, and with the recent preview 6, there are still some big missing pieces in their CSS3 support:

  • CSS3 gradients
  • Flexible box model
  • Text shadow

Plus, on the JavaScript side, I have yet to be able to get any CSS transforms working, though the way to detect them seems to be:

if ( !== 'undefined')

In short, it seems to have relative parity with Opera 10 as far as cool-yet-useful CSS3 features. Keep going, Microsoft, I’m totally cheering for you!

So, when I made Jo, many of the controls were ported over from an older library used in my webOS titles. I was never completely happy with the flicky-scrolly-control, mostly due to sorting out event annoyances, especially between mobile platforms. Now it’s even worse, and I’m tempted to have platform-specific code for certain platforms which have their own enhanced gesture systems. More code, little build complexity, but possibly a big payoff. The animation will still be CSS3-based, so really it’s a matter of sorting out gestures from tap and drag events.
