YUI on the go – load YUI components on demand

Friday, December 7th, 2007

This is one of my talks at the Yahoo! Frontend Engineering summit in London and it deals with the options of cutting down the size of the YUI library components. There have been many articles and posts about this subject already but none really explained the idea of using YAHOO_config to load components on demand instead of using the YUI loader.

This is also the trick I used to create the unobtrusive flickr badge v2.
