Tutorial O’ The Day: Ajax

AjaxFor our last Ajax tutorial I thought I’d list some of the more popular Ajax frameworks on the market.

  • Dojo: Dojo is an Open Source DHTML toolkit written in JavaScript.

  • Prototype is a JavaScript Framework that aims to ease development of dynamic web applications.

  • Script.aculo.us: Provides you with easy-to-use, compatible and, ultimately, totally cool JavaScript libraries to make your web sites and web applications fly, Web 2.0 style.

  • Mochikit: MochiKit is a free lightweight JavaScript library.

  • Yahoo User Interface Library: The Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) Library is a set of utilities and controls, written in JavaScript.

I should point out that Script.aculo.us is not a framework exactly, rather it includes Prototype and adds some additional hooks on top of it.

If you’re looking for frameworks for specific languages, ajaxpatterns.org maintains a nice list.
