Detect Ajax Framework with WTFramework

Category: JavaScript

Because viewing the source is too bothersome, we now have WTFramework (short for “What The Framework”, obviously), a bookmarklet that will detect and display the Ajax / JavaScript frameworks used in the current website.

It does so by checking for loaded JavaScript objects for each framework, not by analyzing the <script> element URIs.

I wrote a Greasemonkey/Userscript based off of this awesome bookmarklet. I added a few other components to be detected; like Google Analytics, sIFR, ExtJS.

Not bad, one issue though is it doesn’t seem to be able to detect multiple frameworks.
I know what you’re thinking:
“WTF, you’re using multiple frameworks?”

Yup, jQuery and YUI.
