  • Have you tried MooTools [mootools.net] ? I've seen some pretty nifty GUIs developed on it, and it seems pretty compact.

    For a more professional solution (wo/ nasty Flash-ness), you might look into TIBCO GI [tibco.com], tho it has some of the same bloatware issues as ExtJS

    I agree Dojo's docs to date have been appallingly bad...but now there are several print books on it (I haven't read any yet, but its on my TO DO list).

    And I also agree YUI is probably the most accessible of all, probably because the website has really nice examp

    • No response from the MooTools link.

      Exit MooTools.

      ThinWire: I abstain from Java, and am only looking for Javascript stuff. Now, in the ThinWire FAQ I see
      'Thinwire is not designed to use custom JavaScript code elsewhere'. Oh. (By 'elsewhere' I assume they mean 'anywhere').

      Exit ThinWire.

      Now: QooXDoo.

      Yes, this is more suited to my way of thinking, and a demo like this (go in, I'm afraid, via Documentation/Getting started/Snippets/Demo browser):
      http://demo.qooxdoo.org/current/demobrowser/#widget~TabView.html [qooxdoo.org]
      gives a good indication of how to work the levers.

      I wouldn't switch now, but this makes me think QooXdoo is almost a plausible alternative to YUI :-).

      $many x $thanx;

      As for 'Conspicuously absent from your list'! I didn't claim to review all libs, or even review broadly...

      Looks like you'd be better off doing that than me.

      And as soon as you say bloatware, I'm turned off, so thanx for that, too.

      Lastly, months ago I did look at Prototype/Scriptaculous, but didn't like to look of them, and as I've emphasized, these judgments are very personal, and so, having found a package (YUI) I'm happy with, I'd need a very strong argument to investigate them in enough depth to consider switching.
