JavaScript Toolkits from Fluid

In case you don’t follow the Fluid lists/blogs, I want to draw your attention to an extremely high quality blog entry from Colin Clark, Technical Lead for the Fluid project. Colin’s post goes describes why you should use JavaScript toolkits rather than rolling your own and why, after considerable exploration, the Fluid Project chose jQuery as its library of choice. The criteria they used to make this decision included:

  • Cross-browser support
  • Easy debugging
  • Event abstraction
  • A solid DOM manipulation library
  • A strong community and clear roadmap for improvements
  • Accessibility

Thanks, Colin, for taking the time to articulate this. I encourage you to read the entry, read the latest happenings on the Fluid Project and check out jQuery.
