In this section we will learn how to download and install Dojo in your web application. You can easily add Dojo support into your existing application.
This section covers:
You can download the latest version of Dojo from its official site http://dojotoolkit.org/. The latest version of Dojo was Dojo Toolkit 1.1.1 at the time of wiring of the tutorial.
Download the Dojo toolkit directly from http://dojotoolkit.org/downloads.
In our case the downloaded file was dojo-release-1.1.1.tar.gz.
First choose the directory in your computer where you want to install the Dojo for this tutorial. Let's assume that the directory is c:\mydojo. Now move the downloaded file into the "c:\mydojo" directory and unzip it using WinZip tool or winrar tool. You will get a new directory called "dojo-release-1.1.1". Here is the screen shot from my computer:
Now you ready to start the development. In next section I will show you how to develop simple "Hello World" Dojo application.
Installing Dojo into existing application
Installing Dojo into existing application is also a very easy task. You have to just copy the directory "dojo-release-1.1.1" into your existing project. You can rename the directory "dojo-release-1.1.1" to dojo for easy programming.
Now get ready to develop "Hello World" application in next section.
