Virtual Panel: Evolution of JavaScript Frameworks for HTML 5

by Dio Synodinos on May 08, 2009 |

HTML 5 is the fifth major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web and although the specification is ongoing work, parts of HTML 5 are already implemented in browsers like Safari 4 beta.

In addition to specifying markup, HTML 5 exposes several new scripting APIs. InfoQ recently conducted a virtual panel via email regarding how the JavaScript frameworks will evolve in order to take advantage of these new APIs. The panel featured representatives from some of the most widely deployed projects that deal with client-side JavaScript:

  • Dylan Schiemann, CEO of SitePen and co-creator of Dojo
  • Matt Sweeney & Eric Miraglia, YUI engineering team
  • Andrew Dupont, core developer of Prototype
  • Thomas Fuchs, creator of script.aculo.us, and core developer of Prototype and Ruby on Rails
  • David Walsh, core developer for MooTools
  • Scott Blum and Joel Webber, co-creators of GWT

Nice but IE doesn't like W3C very much and the mobile world is missed by Jose M. Arranz

I see serious problems in adoption of HTML 5 because of IE and the mobile world.

Internet Explorer v8 lacks support of some basic W3C standards like W3C DOM Events and mobile browsers are a nightmare. I see HTML 5 adopted for very specific web "applications" and for selected browsers.

Other frameworks. by S Prakash

How about the evolving frameworks like
EXT JS
and
SMART CLIENT
?
