Hi Romy -

APE is a javascript library I developed from 2007 to 2009.

In most cases where I've worked, requirements hare been to develop custom
widgets.  For this reason, I have found myself in recurring situations.

The solutions for these types of problems include DOM utility functions,
DOM Event functions, an abstract Event Registry, time-based Animation, and
all wrapped up in a packaging and abstraction (APE core). There are other
packages, such as for working with color, and for the widgets themselves.

The best parts of APE are the Event Registry, APE.js core, and the
Animation and StyleTransition. The Event Registry has nothing DOM specific,
so it is clean. The DOM events library accounts for anomalies in older IE
event model.

StyleTransition is the only transition based API that I know of that uses
the Strategy design pattern to achieve its means. I am proud to say that it
does this cleanly and efficiently.

The problem I am having now is that github pages does not provid for any
sort of server-side processing.

I will be starting a JS study group at Noisebridge. Are you interested?
