Hi fellow readers,
I’m not talk about choosing just an AJAX library but I want some ‘full’ set of library which including both AJAX core and user interface core.
Here are my choices before consideration…
- YUI (Yahoo User Interface)
Sorry that I didn’t included other libraries because I’m not impressed with any other at all.
First, jQuery, this is by far the best AJAX + effect library for me personally. I really love it because it produces a ‘short’ script. Especially when compared to YUI.
However, what jQuery lack of is UI components. You have to find out 3rd party for yourself.
So, I decide to move on YUI which currently have a bunch of UI components included.
What I can say about YUI is I really impressed with it. It has a BUNCH of UI included in the library which you can select to use or bypass.
However, most of the script produced by YUI is so ‘long’ when compared to jQuery.
So, now, I hold on both YUI and jQuery and finding for a better library in the market.
I finally found ExtJs.
Try yourself and let me know how you feel about it.
I feel the ‘MOST’ impress with ExtJs.
Cool UI and effect and I decided to use it in combination with jQuery.
This will help me reduce much time to develop my project.
Technical details will be continued in the next part while I’m developing my project.
