Hi all,

A] Which of the javascript frameworks is the best supported from RubyOnRails ?
1> JQuery.
2> Dojo.

B] Which one out of the JQuery and Dojo can be used for complex javascript DOM manipulation.


Is their any other framework other than above specified best to use while developing in RubyOnRails.

thanks.


Thanks.

A. Yes
B. Yes

In other words, both are suitable.

Of the two, jQuery seems to be the most popular, so if you want the one with best support in forums and the most people with general knowledge of it, jQuery is the way to go.

Prototype is the default RoR JavaScript framework, but either works fine. There's zero built-in support for Dojo, and I'm not sure if there are any plugins for it.
