The brass buckles on Underscore’s utility belt – a contributors’ library for Underscore.
- a home for functions that are limited in scope, but solve certain point problems, and
- a proving ground for features that belong in Underscore proper, but need some advocacy and/or evolution (or devolution) to get them there.
First, you’ll need Underscore. Then you can grab the relevant underscore-contrib libraries and simply add something like the following to your pages:
At the moment there are no cross-contrib dependencies (i.e. each library can stand by itself), but that may change in the future.
There is still a lot of work to do around perf, documentation, examples, testing and distribution so any help in those areas is welcomed. Pull requests are accepted, but please search the issues before proposing a new sub-contrib or addition. Additionally, all patches and proposals should have strong documentation, motivating cases and tests. It would be nice if we could not only provide useful tools built on Underscore, but also provide an educational experience for why and how one might use them.
Other (potentially) useful sub-contribs include the following:
- String utilities
- Date/time utilities
What do these mean? Well, that’s up for discussion. :-)
