Okay, my posts are already being considered flamebait, but really...
this is utter non-sense to me.
I've just remember why I hated so much MochiKit: when you read through
its documentation you can't seem to find a place where it actually
DWIM as it should (but maybe I'm just a really wicked person). It
smells over-engineering. I really don't like it.
Dojo, on the other hand, really seems somewhat sane. I should probably
look into it a bit more during the next weeks, since I wasn't familiar
There's this one thing I noticed, though: Dojo has this horribly
familiar Java feeling. Then, looking back at MochiKit, it also has
this horribly familiar Python feeling. Then it all makes perfect
sense. I kind of like Ruby, thus Prototype seems really nice to me.
Or maybe we just needed people to stop bitching around and actually
code useful stuff. Amazingly, even the ones that already help a lot,
could be even more help more if they stopped doing so. ;-)
As a side note, my original post wasn't intented as a flamebait (if
that's what some people implied): I really think a sucessfull Catalyst
book would need those things, but then I'm no book author. I probably
won't even read the Catalyst book, since I probably won't manage get a
hard copy whenever it gets published. It was just my two cents,
