Professional JavaScript® Frameworks

Prototype, YUI, Ext JS, Dojo and MooTools

As the needs and demands of developers have evolved over the years, so has JavaScript, which boasts a track record of delivering high-performing and exceptionally impressive web-user experiences. This flexible, dynamic programming language is increasingly used for serious development on the web, and several of its tools and projects are being shared in the form of libraries and frameworks. Packed with coverage of many of the most popular JavaScript frameworks, this authoritative guide examines how these frameworks can present unique and varying approaches to a variety of problems in web development—each of which has its own pros and cons.

This unparalleled team of authors has assembled some of the most active and popular JavaScript frameworks available and they walk you through common web development tasks addressed by each framework, while also examining how the framework approaches a particular set of tasks. In addition, practical examples and clear explanations demonstrate the many aspects of contemporary web development and exactly what the selection of JavaScript frameworks has to offer so that you can get up and running quickly.
