Closure: The Definitive Guide
Tools for adding power to your JavaScript
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: September 2010
Pages: 592

If you're ready to use Closure to build rich web applications with JavaScript, this hands-on guide has precisely what you need to learn this suite of tools in depth. Closure makes it easy for experienced JavaScript developers to write and maintain large and complex codebases—as Google has demonstrated by using Closure with Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Maps.

Author and Closure contributor Michael Bolin has included numerous code examples and best practices, as well as valuable information not available publicly until now. You'll learn all about Closure's Library, Compiler, Templates, testing framework, and Inspector—including how to minify JavaScript code with the Compiler, and why the combination of the Compiler and the Library is what sets Closure apart from other JavaScript toolkits.

  • Learn how the Compiler significantly reduces the amount of JavaScript users have to download when visiting your site
  • Discover several ways to use the Compiler as part of your build process
  • Learn about type expressions, primitives, and common utilities
  • Understand how Closure emulates classes and class-based inheritance
  • Use Closure Templates on the server and the client from either JavaScript or Java
  • Test and debug your JavaScript code, even when it's compiled

Comments about O'Reilly Media Closure: The Definitive Guide:

You can keep it as a reference book. For anyone who wants to learn how to program with Google Closure, this book will help a lot. For someone who is not familiar with Java might be a little worried as the author compares the Closure style of programming with Java, but, its nothing to be worried about, you can just assume it to be a comparison and read on.
