Hi All, I am new to wonderful Rails, I am starting a project in Rails. Searching for the best UI widgets and plugins that I can used in Rails. Found 2 best 1) ExtJS and 2) JQuery. As I saw ExtJS, it is very large in size and I dont want to load the extjs-all.js for each client request. Next option is JQuery, which is also good come with very compressed version with minimal functionality. If you need more and more widgets we need to import corresponding plugins. I just want to know the people comments on this and I want to hear the success stories using JRails. Thanks, Ramu.

Is it a backend web-application or a public website? If your project is more application-like, there are a number of things you can do to squeeze down the size of Ext, including mod_gzip with apache. I have over two years' experience using Ext with Rails. Chris S. Senior Software Engineer -- ExtJS My blog: www.extonrails.com Stephen Hiller's Rails/Ext blog: http://www.extjswithrails.com/
