Dojo Toolkit

Definition - What does Dojo Toolkit mean?

The Dojo toolkit is an open-source modular toolkit containing a JavaScript library that is designed for rapidly creating JavaScript/Ajax-based websites and cross-platform applications. It aims to save time and scale the development process by using the Web standards themselves as the platform. One big advantage of the Dojo toolkit is that its core is a set of lightweight and independent modules that can be loaded as needed asynchronously and very quickly.

The Dojo toolkit is also known simply as Dojo.

Techopedia explains Dojo Toolkit

The Dojo toolkit is a JavaScript framework that targets the needs of large-scale client-side Web development by automating some very important processes. One of these is the automation and simplification of browser compatibility as it abstracts their differences by providing APIs that already work for all of them. The toolkit provides a framework for creating code modules and for defining and managing their dependencies, and also the necessary tools for building and optimizing CSS and JavaScript, doing unit testing and creating documentation. It also provides a rich suite of commonly used utility classes and UI-enhancing widgets.

Components of the Dojo toolkit are:
  • Core — This component contains the central and non-visual modules.
  • Dijit — This is a widget and layout library for the user interface.
  • Dojox — This component consists of experimental modules that are not yet stable enough to be included in Dojo and Dijit.
  • Util — This component contains build tools for style checking, automation, optimization and documentation.
