ElementalJS and SimpleBDD open source updates

May 14, 2013 Robbie Clutton

Thanks to the benefits of Open Source software and working with great people, I’m pleased to announce some updates to both ElementalJS and to SimpleBDD.

ElementalJS

Thanks to Ian Zabel who made a performance improvement to ElementalJS after fighting a large DOM in Internet Explorer. Elemental will now load the behaviours much quicker if the document is passed as no filtering will take place. If another node is passed, filtering will be applied but the thought is that DOM will be much smaller so hopefully won’t hit this issue.

SimpleBDD

Thanks to Adam Berlin who made two improvements to SimpleBDD. First was the addition to also to the syntax and second was NoMethodError is replaced by pending if using RSpec.

More improvements were made by Daniel Finnie which allow use of some non alphanumeric characters that get turned into method names.
