In reverse engineering the Scriptaculous into GWTaculous, I’ve done a bit of spelunking and produced a few artifacts to explain Scriptaculous to myself. I thought I’d share one of them — a sequence diagram for Effects — in the hopes that someone else will find it useful. The diagram below isn’t complete — it doesn’t contain the event calls — and it doesn’t cover the Parallel effects, but it does give a decent overview for anyone trying to understand the Event lifecycle or someone trying to write their own effect.
