Getting rid of SULibrary

Lukas has broke Pier loose from the dependency to the Scriptaculous and Prototype Javascript libraries. To benefit from this modification, you have to update the code of:

  • Magritte-Model
  • Pier-Model
  • Pier-Seaside
  • Pier-Documents
  • Pier-EditorEnh

This means that you can now remove the SULibrary from the libraries list of your Pier Seaside configuration. To do this you have to go to /seaside/config, edit the configuration of the pier application and remove the item from the list.

This alone will bring a speedup factor of 2 to your Pier.

The search box with autocomplete functionality still requires these libraries. Only remove SULibrary if you do not use this widget. The rest of Pier is truly independent of external Javascript libraries.
