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.

What is the nature of your project?  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.
