informative and helpful, i like it.
jQury is the best i tink, i will suggest tihs one.
Scriptaculous is essentially the animation and widget interface for prototype, another very popular AJAX toolset. Prototype was a very important toolset early on, but jQuery appears to be taking over as the most popular toolset.
YUI is the Yahoo User Interface. This is a comprehensive (and massive) AJAX toolset from Yahoo. It allows you to build AJAX pages with the same tools used by the Yahoo team. It is extensive, but not terribly difficult to learn.
i dont know about mootools what about this...???
Prototype and yahoo, i think
I love Extjs, Mootools and JQuery. ExtJS for UI app, Mootools for custom app and JQuery for rapid web enhancement. For JQuery, Almost any plugins i want can be searched via google. I hated the JQuery syntax before, but after using it intensively i can get used to it.
Yeah MooTools for the mature coder who is tired of hitting CTRL - C, CTRL- V and wasting code over and over. Oh yeah, now that jQuery is actually larger in files size than MooTools (and comparably offers less utility) I think it should really take a hard look in the mirror at its little motto - "Write less, do more". With MooTools your code may end up 5% or 10% bigger in terms of actual char, but that code you write is really extensible and can be used over and over. In jQuery you mostly "Write less" about 50 times to do something damn similar to the first time - ask yourself one questions folks: Have you really written less at that point???
Oh yeah, that and if you want your webapp to look like a Windows XP desktop.
I can't believe Ext JS gets so much love and support. I spent the last five months using it on a client project, and if you need to step outside the very basic box they provide for you, you're in for a LOT of pain. Yes, from an API design/modularity standpoint, it has a lot to commend; but it takes you way too far afield of the page you're delivering for my tastes. I could take or leave a lot of jQuery, but what I love about it at the end of the day is that there are no big heavy objects between you and the DOM.
jQuery > god > cookie
Who doesn't use a framework has too much time on his hands and.
I could go on, but it would be pointless. Those who would rather rely on a framework than take the time to understand the tools they work with will continue to do so. Frameworks will continue to promote themselves as silver-bullet solutions. I can't change anyone's mind; I just wanted to express my opinion and appreciate the space here to do so.
I'm with you guys... EXT and jQuery is a great combination, but jQuery UI isn't really comparable to EXT. They both focus on totally different things and have their own uses.
By the way, no Google Closure here?
Oz.js is very lightweight and provides useful functions.
No surprise here, all these polls end up the same way, with jQuery dominating.
jQuery + ExtJS
Definitely MooTools. I know jQuery has a much bigger community, i just don't like the syntax or OOP implementation.
@Xanti - yes, yes, modularization and abstraction in programming is a terrible practice. Functions that call other functions? Wasteful.
Speaking of lightweight vs. heavyweight, I'm with christopher and lossendae that ExtJS blows all the other JS libs out of the water for intense UI building, but it's also about as heavyweight as they come. Just now are browsers getting to a point where they can handle moderately sophisticated ExtJS interfaces with grace.
Been using XUI JS super light JS lib for mobile. I dig it!
MooTools framework. Everyone knows the jQuery toolkit is for Noobs.
Mootools all the way!!!! Makes using JS much easier and less painful!
+1 for ExtJS
Beautiful and powerful UI builder.
jQuery UI feels like a playskool level tool compared to it :)
jQuery ftw :)
you could've included Ext JS (http://www.extjs.com/), for all the UI designers out there ;)
