x$ – now a part of XPages Extension Library

I am very flattered to find out that not only is my x$ OpenNTF xSnippet being used more widely than I realized (over 600 downloads). It now being used in the latest release of the OpenNTF Extension library.

If you look here – http://bootstrap4xpages.com/xsp/.ibmxspres/.extlib/responsive/xpages/js/xsp-mixin.js and search for it you will find


//jQuery selector that works with XPages IDs
//See - http://openntf.org/XSnippets.nsf/snippet.xsp?id=x-jquery-selector-for-xpages
function x$(idTag, param){
	idTag = idTag.replace(/:/gi, "\\:") + (param ? param : "");
	return($("#" + idTag));
}

Who knew my first foray into the XPages community would have such an impact.

The lesson here boys and girls should be that you should *share* your work however small and insignificant you think it is. Like all scientific research, very little code is “a completely new way of doing things”. Generally everything grows incrementally and just because you don’t think something is significant, someone else might.

You are reading this – what have you shared recently?
