Version 1.10 is shaping up to be a fundamental advancement of SproutCore as
the best framework for creating powerful user experiences on the web.
We’ve already been doing the best of breed practices for creating dynamic
web applications for some time. For example, running in the client,
maintaining the application “truth” in code, minimizing touching the DOM
and many other practices that keep SproutCore apps as fast as possible.
These features allow you to create extremely complex interfaces that update
instantly as the user interacts with them. However, while instant updates
were a major advancement, they can give the interface a jarring feel and
therefore the next level of application design is to go beyond instant
updates and add “life” or “play” to your user interface with subtle
As such, SproutCore 1.10 will include a new automatic transition ... (more)

I was recently asked to do a write-up about my SproutCore app,
Hubbub (@hubbubapp), as a general anecdotal guide to those interested in
writing large scale applications in SproutCore for the first time.
I’m afraid this first post won’t be very technical, but I will at least
attempt to make it an enjoyable read, and to tell you about some of my early
bumps in the road so that you can avoid them. My overview of Hubbub will also
span a few posts, so if you have particular questions, I can spend some time
on them in future.
What’s all the Hubbub?
This isn’t the place to talk up the a... (more)

Shortly after the new SproutCore site launched, tymofi contacted me on IRC
and asked “how can I help translate this into Russian?” Since
SproutCore’s build tools have localization support, it turns out this is
quite easy; you just fill in a strings.js file and your done.
Yesterday tymofi sent me both Russian and Ukranian translations. We also
added a nifty language picker in the upper-right corner. (Also SproutCore
Of course, the site right now is pretty small (just the home page, a blog and
a wiki). The translations only apply to wrapper content and the home page.
