No No No.

TwistyPlugin is a default plugin and we cannot set it depending on Dojo. You even did this in Release branch

I will revert this

-- KennethLavrsen - 23 Feb 2010


No way a default plugin can be made depending on another plugin that is not a default

NEVER ever add a dependency to a default plugin that is not a default

The consequence is that when someone updates Twisty and never intend to use Dojo they get Dojo installed against their will and that is a big monster to get forced upon you

There has been talks on trunk to add JQuery. But that has not happened yet so until this is done, it is also an unwanted dependency there.

It can be added to Twisty dependency in trunk IF and only IF
  • It really is a dependency and not a nice to have
  • JQuery is added to the core/lib/MANIFEST
  • Dojo should never ever be a dependency

fixed on trunk, for new version of TwistyPlugin which is implemented using JQueryPlugin
