Ive been working hard trying to learn how to do what came so naturally and easy to me in jQuery in YUI and YUI-ext. I have been scouring the forums and the documentation. I can’t understand any of it. It just isn’t designed for a non-programmer. But I have no choice. YUI-ext is the framework I must use.
So just now I found a YUI-ext manual and FAQ. Look at the question near the top, “How do I figure out what error X is and why it’s happening?” The answers make me so angry. RFTM? RTFS? This is the sort of answer that might as well say, “If you don’t know, then we don’t want you to use this software.” It’s rude and discouraging. It has no style.
On the other hand, jQuery has never ever done that to me. They have tons of examples and tutorials. The people have been so friendly and helpful. They have style.
I am so bummed right now. So discouraged. I miss jQuery.
UPDATE: RTFM and RTFS were removed from the FAQ. Thank you. 🙂 Long live the power of the squeaky wheel.
