I’ve been thinking a lot lately about JavaScript applications. As my skills have evolved, I’ve had the privilege of working on more actual applications, and I’ve gotten further and further from clients who want to add a bit of Ajax or bling to an otherwise fairly traditional web site.

A Modest Proposal: jQuery Enterprise - jQuery Development | Google Groups

In short: Having any sort of sanctioned OOP technique breeds more

inevitably have to be integrated in to core.

Do you really need jQuery (for mobile dev)?

I love jQuery, I use it everyday, you can spot it even on this blog. It's a life saver in the times of desktop browser discrepancies (yes, I'm talking to you IE), but modern browsers and specifically mobile browsers are good enough not to need any bloated framework on their shoulders.

Sortable lists with JQuery in Rails | Awesomeful

Drag 'n Drop sortable lists are a great way to provide a UI for sorting, well, lists of things.

jQuery Form Plugin

The jQuery Form Plugin allows you to easily and unobtrusively upgrade HTML forms to use AJAX. The main methods, ajaxForm and ajaxSubmit, gather information from the form element to determine how to manage the submit process.

6 Steps to Unobtrusive Rails (with jQuery)

Here's a set of 6 steps which breakdown the approach I have been using to unobtrusively add ajax functionality to a Rails application. The value of this approach (as opposed to traditional .rjs) is maintaining full separation of Javascript and display code, as well as building ajax on top of a version of your app that works without Javascript enabled in the user's browser.

Unobtrusive jQuery with Ruby on Rails | The Next Train

jQuery is my javascript library of choice. At Platform45 we use it in place of the prototype libraries included with Rails. jQuery makes it a pleasure working with the ugly javascript monster. The documentation is superb with plenty of examples.
