I was doing well today until I read the Digg blog about using JQuery for their updated comments code. Now I'm trying to learn about all of them Prototype
, and Adobe Spry
- Prototype 126.96.36.199 - one of the originals, at least the first one I remember
- jQuery 1.1.2 - great, tons of examples, and documentation
- 54k and compressed to 24k
- MooTools.net 1.11 - awesome, tons of examples, and documentation.
- Core Only 4k and compressed to 3k
- Everything 87k and compressed to 43 k
- script.aculo.us 1.7.0 - requires 7 files plus an included version of prototype.js
- Adobe Spry - beta
MooTools.net has a great download builder. It allows you to have just the core functionality (4k) or choose to add about 30 other classes and plugins (all 87k). Mootools.net also provides a variety of compression methods like no comments and whitespace, no documentation, and packer compression. Both Jquery and MooTools are available with the MIT license
which allows for personal and commercial use without restrictions.
I just seriously started reviewing these today but it seems jQuery and Mootools.net are stand outs. jQuery also has the advantage of Digg.com switching from script.aculo.us for their site.
I know this not a complete review and I will add more to the list as I learn about them.
