jquery href hover

Contrary to what you can find on the web, when trying to set the window.status when hovering over a link, you need to return false at the end of the hover function, otherwise the standard mouseover event is going to kick in overwrite your window.status

The following jQuery works

$('a').hover(function(){window.status=this.title?this.title:'';return false;},function(){window.status='';return false;})

If you return true, the window status is going to display the URL instead, which is the standard.

Prototype callbacks and this keyword

Trying to encapsulate programming logic into objects, I hit a snag when dealing with event callbacks in javascript. Using the prototype library I use the Object.extend method to create my own objects, which contain their own event handlers. When the event handler fires, the reference to the object instance has been lost, however, so the code does not work anymore.

The gentleman in this blog entry found the solution: the callback needs to be passed as event listener like so


and all is well.

Hybridizing Java

OpenDarwin WebKit Drosera

from the website

I would like to introduce a new addition to the WebKit open source tools—a JavaScript debugger. Drosera, named after the largest genera of bug eating plants, lets you attach and debug JavaScript for any WebKit application—not just Safari.


FireBug lets you explore the far corners of the DOM by keyboard or mouse. All of the tools you need to poke, prod, and monitor your JavaScript, CSS, HTML and Ajax are brought together into one seamless experience, including a debugger, an error console, command line, and a variety of fun inspectors.


The Web is changing. The 30-year-old terminal-like technology it was originally is gradually giving way to new ways of doing things. The power of AJAX allows for rich user interaction without the trouble that has bugged traditional web applications. Building upon the wonderful Prototype JavaScript library, script.aculo.us provides you with some great additional ingredients to mix in.


This is a simple php script which allow you to upload and download files. There isn't any complex user management because it aims more for private file repository use.

It as direct file deletion using AJAX, instant table sort using a self modified version of sorttable.js and finally upload file progressbar using a cgi(perl) script.

If you want to know more about those technologies, go to more information section.
