Drag and Drop without HTML5


A year ago I created an HTML5 drag and drop library in the Dart programming language. I thought I could takle this horrible HTML5 API and create a nice layer on top of it to make it pleasant to work with drag and drop. It did work but the library got bigger and bigger with all the workarounds for the different browsers.

So, I finally gave up and created a new drag and drop library without HTML5.

Have a look at the demos on the following page:

Dart Drag and Drop

You can also read the details about why I decided against HTML5.

There is more to come soon: Based on the drag and drop library I've created a Swiper library that works with mouse and touch. I will write when I have it cleaned up and ready to use.
