Ajaxian conducted a recent survery on Ajax toolkits/frameworks. The “winner” was Prototype ( a new one to me ) which is a Ruby-based framework. Wow! I did not realise there were so many AJAX frameworks out there! I use Sajax ( it is simple ) and have been experimenting with Backbase ( too complex for me ). PHP turns out to be the most popular server-side web development platform. Good news for me. I have been using PHP more often than Perl now. I have been using the Sajax toolkit for a few months now and I really like it. True to it’s name it is simple to setup and use. I tooled around with Backbase but…the learning curve and complexity required more time than I have patience for. I also very quickly tired the Dojo AJAX toolkit/framework. I think that one has potential ( easy to use and lots of features ) and I may come back to it later.
