Dojo – The Browser Toolkit

Monday, June 13th, 2005

Oh, well you can’t mention ’em all except one, so here’s the AJAX / browser UI toolkit briefly mentioned in the previous post. I haven’t tried this or any of the other mentioned Ajax API’s because I have written my own a long time before all this Ajax talk, I won’t promise when I’ll release it, because it seems I have to evaluate the feature sets of quite a number of api’s first.. One’s api has to be superior ofcourse (Seriously I will probably go for a multi-layered architecture, attempting to base a complex Ajax core upon a low-level core, allowing for the many uses XML data has on a website)..

Simple AJAX Code-Kit (SACK)

In this seemingly unlimited stream of AJAX articles and frameworks, let me present you to SACK. SACK is a light-weight AJAX API, written by Gregory Wild-Smith.

Gregory writes: “I’ve seen AJAX solutions like SAJAX or Dojo, and they haven’t really interested me. They seem to bloated and, for the most part, rather insecure.
This is mostly because they appear to be trying to do things with AJAX that it can do, but should it?
