Most Popular AJAX Frameworks

Posted on Updated on


Here are list of the mostly used AJAX Frameworks:

  1. Dojo Toolkit, Modular JavaScript toolkit
  2. Ext (javascript library), A library that extends Prototype, Jquery and YUI
  3. jQuery, a JavaScript framework that provides an Ajax framework and other utilities
  4. MochiKit, is a light-weight Javascript library inspired by the Python networking framework
  5. Mootools, a compact and modular JavaScript framework best known for its visual effects and transitions
  6. Prototype, a JavaScript framework that provides Ajax and other utilities
  7. Rialto Toolkit, (Rich Internet Application Toolkit) is ajax-based cross browser javascript widgets library
  8. Script.aculo.us, Used with the Prototype Framework, mainly for animations and interface development
  9. Yahoo! UI Library, a set of utilities and controls, for building richly interactive web applications using techniques such as DOM scripting, DHTML and Ajax

Personally, i am using script.aculo.us and mootools. Their application is very simple and are easy to use and integrate in my projects.

what’s your choice? =)

    jQuery also has something very similar to script.aculo.us.
    It’s called jQuery UI and does a lot of the same things Prototype + script.aculo.us does.

    I prefer to use jQuery only because I don’t have to touch the HTML much. A lot of times, I can do what needs to be done with just one or two code files.

    I’m not really a designer, though I do layout work from time to time. The designs are usually done by someone else.

    Somtimes, designers get very angry if the programmer comes in and changes anything in the layout. So it’s best to go with the least intrusive method😉

    It’s not necessarily easier to use than Prototype (I’d say they’re about the same in ease of use). The file sizes are debatable, since each side always says theirs is smaller. It also depends on what features you’ve implemented.

    It’s not just the SIZE that matters, it’s the SPEED. You want small, fast frameworks. I’ve used JQuery and Mootools, and I’ve focused mostly on mootools in my current employment (and JQuery prior). They’re both awesome, well developed and have strong followings. I’m trying to use prototype + scriptaculous and dojo a bit more now…
