anyone used prototype.js?

P: n/a
Hello,

I wonder if anyone has used prototype? Is is a Javascript framework.

I am using prototype-1.3.1.js and have a question but so far have not
found many people who know about this work.

Any ideas?

I haven't. Probably never will.

There are two general opinions of generalised javascript libraries
expressed by regular contributors to this group; the opinion that they
are a bad idea (inevitably held by individuals who do/will not use
them), and the opinion that they are a good idea. The second opinion is
mostly represented on this group by individuals who have written
generalised script libraries, and so by individuals who do not have a
reason for using other people's libraries.

Apart from the authors of particular generalised javascript libraries,
their appeal is to individuals who have little knowledge of javascript,
and little interest in learning it. So if the author of this library is
not willing to provide adequate documentation you are unlikely to find
anyone else in a position to say much about it.

OK ! Thanks Richard - perhaps a little more learning on my part is the
best way forward!

I have used Prototype.js. As you said you have to invest some time
in learning it. But there is help from a guy who has posted a partial
documentation for this library. Access it here
http://www.sergiopereira.com/articles/prototype.js.html.

hope it helps.

Peroli,

Thanks for above. I have exchanged several emails with Sergio who has
been very helpful but I think he is very busy just at the moment.

Thanks for reminding me of his pages I will have another look at them!

Cheers
