Hey Ruby\Rails users, (like me)
I know that Prototype (cough “jQuery”)is the library of choice for
most rails developers. When it comes to enterprise level apps and having
an extensive commercially supported library, you cannot beat ExtJS. If
you want a great case study, look at SalesForce.com and how they have
used ExtJS as their library of choice.
When I came across this poll today, I was shocked to see just how low
Ruby was voted on (only 40 votes). I don’t post very often on forums,
but I could not help but to share this and hope that fellow Rails/Ruby
users will support it and vote.

They have also just happened to (beta) release their new MIT Licensed
Ext Core. Which boasts some impressive features and majorly competes
with jQuery when looking for a core JS framework for websites.
While I use jQuery for my website front-end, and will be very hard for
me to switch. When I think about the success of Ext Core, is that once
my customers graduate past a simple website, I know that the full ExtJS
3.0 is waiting for me. No longer do I have to worry about some small 3rd
party jQuery plug-in to do something my clients require. Gone is the
worry that they will update and develop for years their â€˜projectâ€™
plugin. I can release my projects and be secure in my personal
reputation (and ability to support them for many years.)
Thanks all for supporting Rails (*Ruby)
