Ajaxian.com 2006 Survey Results

Category: Survey

<p>Prototype

The results of our second annual Ajaxian.com survey, prepared by Richard Monson-Hafael from the Burton Group, are in. And the winner is… Prototype, the most popular Ajax framework, by a considerable margin: 43% of you use it. Script.aculo.us is next, at 33%, confirming observations that many of made of the popularity of that duo.

The full results of our framework survey follow:

Framework Survey Results

Note that multiple responses per participant were allowed; we’ve also thrown out any result with less than 3% of responses in the above graphic.

We also asked you about the server-side platform you’re using. The big winner here was PHP, with 50% of you using it:

Platform Survey Results

Some other interesting factoids:

  • 25% of you eschew frameworks and work with XMLHttpRequest directly (wow!)
  • 11% of you are using JSON to transfer data; unfortunately, we didn’t ask enough questions to determine how this compares with XML or other data formats
  • 3% of you are still using Microsoft’s “classic” ASP framework; five of you (~0.6%) are using C++ (+2 points for increased performance, -100 for increased complexity?)
  • 2% of you wrote in to say that you’re using Adobe’s Flex toolkit (hey, those banner ads are working out…); 2% also indicated that they use the Flex/Ajax bridge. Unfortunately, the survey software we used doesn’t let us correlate these entries, so we can only say that 2%-4% of you are using Flex in some way
  • One participant uses Delphi (how’s that working out for you?), and another is using LISP (can we hire you?).

The survey results are based on 865 participants over the course of a week in September, 2006. The raw results are available.

UPDATED: Changed the wording of the Adobe Flex bullet above to be more accurate.

Prototype a framework? Sloppy interpretations here. How about defining AJAX framework as something that allows relatively brain-dead widget utilization? How many of these “frameworks” would qualify?

Comment by Fnustle — September 23, 2006

Hmm… I’ve ceased interpreting any semantic distinction between the terms “library” and “framework” ages ago. Perhaps that’s a mistake. In any event, as should be obvious from the context of the survey, “framework” here indicates a body of code that provides a foundation for making use of XHR and DOM manipulation easier.

You’re right in that many of the frameworks mentioned in the survey don’t provide “widget” abstractions, of course. The popularity of Prototype speaks for itself as to the usefulness of frameworks that omit that feature.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — September 23, 2006

Having used both Dojo and the Prot.aculo.us, my 2c:
- Dojo is great for building a web app (as in enterprise)
- Prot.aculo.us is good for building a web site (as in *cough* web2.0)

Comment by sri varadarajan — September 23, 2006

No offense, but I would think there should be no real differentiation between Prototype and Scriptaculous, since the latter is built on top (and uses) the former. (Not that I don’t believe the numbers, although I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a definite skew of RoR devs in the survey, but that’s the nature of the beast).
Possibly a better graph would be to show those libraries built on top of Prototype (and not Prototype itself), and then show a separate graph of Prototype-based systems vs. non-Prototype based.(For the record, I’ve nothing against Prototype/Scriptaculous, in fact I’ve used them in some projects myself. Although I am getting a bit tired of the fascination with truly cryptic variable names. It’s one thing to refer to a string as “s” or an array as “a”. It’s quite another to try to remember what $/$$/$$$/_$/__$_$___$_$_$___ actually *means*.)

Comment by Tom Trenka — September 23, 2006

Hey, you guys finally fixed the “you made a comment now here’s a blank page” bug!

Comment by Tom Trenka — September 23, 2006

Unlike Ben, I think it is worth while having a distinction between framework and library even if common usage muddies the semantic waters. I see the difference being about how you use the code. In a library you just call out to it, where as a framework requires you to fit your code to its shape. There is often some (a lot?) of overlap.

For example, at my place of employment we have a body of JS code (about 150kb at last count) that is both a framework and a library. Our framework (creatively called ‘Framework’) is fairly small (maybe 10-15% of the overall code), it provides two primary tools, Packaging and Class support as well as some smaller supporting tools. To use our Package class or Class system you have to write you code in a way that fits the model we have provided. The library has some overlap with the framework stuff (seeing as it is implemented on top of it), but is mostly a collection of packages with code that can be dropped into a project.

Also Fnustle, claiming something is only a AJAX framework if it provides widget support seems rather naïve to me. a) surely an AJAX framework is about the AJAX support it provides first and b) It is totally possible to provide ‘drop in’ widgets in a library, and it is totally possible to provide a framework without.

Comment by Andrew B — September 23, 2006

Ben, I understand what you’re saying and I don’t want to quibble symantics but I think it’s critical to make a distinction between “frameworks” that are for hardcore AJAX developers and component utilizers. From what I have read here and elsewhere this critical distinction is often forgotten, which in the end will just muddy the waters for AJAX ever gaining real mainstream developer traction.

Comment by Fnustle — September 23, 2006

Tom: Script.aculo.us and Prototype are definitely coupled, but the margin of folks using just Prototype — 10% — seems big enough to keep the graphs apart, don’t you think? Oh, and yes, we do get around to fixing bugs on the site every six months or so, thanks for noticing. :-)

RE: Frameworks vs. libraries. I think y’all have made some great points. Clearly, on opposite ends of the spectrum, there is a distinction between a library (a bundle of code) and a framework (a platform). It’s that darn grey area in-between that makes me punt on the whole issue. Perhaps “library” should be my catch-all term…

Comment by Ben Galbraith — September 23, 2006

2% of you are using Adobe’s Flex toolkit (hey, those banner ads are working out…)

To be fair, the survey was about Ajax Frameworks, not RIA in general, and the option was for the “Flex Ajax Bridge”, which is not the Flex toolkit / framework, but rather a library that enhances communication between Flex & Ajax applications.

Comment by James Ward — September 23, 2006

James: Actually, that’s a problem — I counted the write-in’s for “Flex”, not the “Flex/Ajax bridge”, which was another ~2%, and I have no idea how many are redundant votes. So, it would be correct to say 2%- 4%… I’ll have to fix that.

[...] Ajaxian released the results of their 2006 ajax-survey, asking more than 860 developers about their coding-habits. according to the survey, the leading ajax-framework clearly is Prototype, with about 43% of the developers using it to date, followed closely by the visual-effects library Script.aculo.us (33%) which is built on top of Prototype. Dojo, DWR and Moo.fx close in between 11 and 19%.  ajax backend-coding is predominated by PHP (49%) and Java (37%), with some smaller chunks for .NET (16%) and Ruby-on-Rail (14%). check out the detailed results… [...]

AndrewB, again I am not trying to define what a framework is and is not. The distinction that I am trying to raise is between the inside and outside views of a “framework/library/whatever.” For example in .NET the outside view is called ASP.NET server controls and the inside view is called AJAX.NET. Of the frameworks listed some are appropriate for people working on the guts, and some are appropriate for people who just want to use the thing. Also I am unconcerned about whether or not widgets are the centeral paradigm, although usually this is the case. I hope my point is now clear to you.

why do I need a framework, library or widget to do this?

[...] En Ajaxian.com publican, a partir de 862 encuestados, los resultados de la segunda encuesta que han realizado en el sitio acerca del mundo Ajax. Destacar que el framework más utilizado ha sido Prototype con un 43%, y el segundo Script.aculo.us con un 33%. Resultados bastante predecibles, pero lo que más me ha interesado es la cifra de un 25% de desarrolladores en AJAX que no utilizan ningún tipo de framework y que interaccionan con XMLHttpRequest y sus propias funciones. Éste ha sido un poco mi caso, comencé con Prototype y script.aculo.us pero para lo que los utilizaba me parecían demasiado pesados. El inconveniente de la mayoría de frameworks viene por ese lado. De ahí que de un tiempo a esta parte hayan surgido librerías mucho más ligeras. [...]

If you make a top of the “heavy” js frameworks, Dojo will definitely take 1st place. [...]

Pingback by Tremend Tech Blog » Spreadsheet dojo widget — September 25, 2006

1DMF: There are roughly speaking two categories of libraries for Ajax development:

XHR helpers / “remoting” libraries. These make async data requests using XHR or IFRAMEs or whatever much easier. Prototype falls into this category.
DOM manipulation helper libs. These make it easier to manipulate the web page, often to achieve some kind of effect. Script.aculo.us falls into this category.

In addition to providing the basic functionality above, the libs often provide tools to make many other tasks easier.

So, you don’t need any third-party code to do Ajax, but you’ll find the libraries will make Ajax much, much easier.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — September 25, 2006

Oliver, Marc: Apologies if something was left off the list. The survey author, Richard Monson-Hafael, busted his butt trying to get anything remotely resembling an Ajax library listed, but mistakes are bound to happen.

As I see the comparison is very strange. Prototype, script.aculo.us itself doesn’t offer a framework to do AJAX development with .NET, others offer only direct AJAX development, others Web 2.0 effects,… I think the survey was very wrong to identify which of them is better or not. The second thing is that there here at Ajaxian.com very less is discussed or written about .NET frameworks. If you do a survey on asp.net you will have very different results.

Patrick: I don’t recall writing anything in the posting as to which of these frameworks is “better” than the others. Indeed, I’m not sure popularity is ever an indication of anything other than… popularity. Of course this survey is an indication of what readers of Ajaxian are using, not other crowds. The problem with statistics, I’m afraid, is that they can never represent true reality, just what a specific sample of people say they do. Among the possibilities of skewage are “get-out-the-vote” campaigns by the libraries in the poll, differences in which communities get to the RSS feeds within a week (poll was only open for a week; I certainly don’t read a lot of feeds this regularly), and so forth.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — September 25, 2006

Isn’t the sample for this survey too small? 865 responses is VERY narrow. I wouldn’t put much weight on any of these results. So, if you’re not seeing one of your favorite Ajax frameworks for .NET represented well, then look at the sample group. It’s mostly PHP/Java developers.

No, actually, I don’t–but perhaps it would have been more useful to show those using Prototype directly, and those using a library built on top of it? Although now that I’m looking at what you’re saying, Scriptalculous should have been the top entry…with Prototype by itself sitting between moo.fx and jQuery. (Like I said, I happen to like Prototype and Scriptaculous, except for the cryptic var names).

Comment by Tom Trenka — September 25, 2006

Although now that I’m looking at what you’re saying, Scriptalculous should have been the top entry…with Prototype by itself sitting between moo.fx and jQuery

Tom: Not enough data to make that leap. I’ve no idea if those who just use Script.aculo.us checked it and not Prototype, or what. While some folks may want to knock Prototype off its pedestal, for our purposes, knowing that at least 43% of participants use Prototype (not counting those who use Script.aculo.us and other tools that depend on Prototype and failed to check the Prototype box) is good data.

In a world where bragging rights are often the only reward you get for a lot of hard work, I think Sam deserves a big pat on the back, not complaints that because other tools bundle Prototype, it ought not be counted. Give credit where credit’s due, I say.

Of course, in future surveys, we ought to do a better job at providing options like:

Prototype
Prototype + Script.aculo.us
Prototype + Rico

to remove the ambiguity of whether or not we expect you to know that Script.aculo.us bundles Prototype, etc.

Am I off base?

There is definitely no argument there; not trying to take credit away from Sam at all here. It just seems to me to be deceptive to say that 43% use Prototype, when one can’t really tell if the real stat is “33% use scriptaculous while another 10% use Prototype directly” or if you really have 43% of people using Prototype by itself. Know what I mean?

(Let me just reiterate again that I’m not being sore here; I know full well that prototype/scriptaculous is very popular and there’s a reason for it.)

Hi,
I didn’t see this mentioned anywhere, and I unfortunately wasn’t reading my RSS feeds in time to participate in the survey (doesn’t matter, I’d have ended up in #1 and #2):  Do I take it that developers could vote for more than one toolkit in the survey?  (I’m assuming this since the total for all toolkits in your chart is way over 100%.)  If so, that would definitely skew the results for anyone working with Prototype, since if they’re knowledgeable they would have voted for Prototype when also voting for Script.aculo.us, Rico, and possibly moo.  I’d suggest you restrict voting to only one “toolkit” (or whatever you want to call them) next time.

Thanks a lot for the survey… there’s still a lot of great information here.

Hi,
Its good to find that so many frameworks are availaible for easy development of AJAX. But with so many frameworks coming up wont this be a chaos for the developers what framework to use and when?
You cannot adopt any framework, just because it is popular, we also need to give a consideration to the fact what will sustain, the pros and cons of each framework. Doesn’t anyone feel the need of one common framework which addresses all issued over the WEB for AJAX to grow without much chaos. I am new , do tell me if there is such framework developed in collabaration with well defined and agreed specifications.
