(baked in with several frameworks, including Prototype, Scriptaculous, Rico, many use YUI as well (not included), you could even use jQuery.) Think PHP-dot-net. Has lots of premade components/ ajax components / Jack Slocum-like-comment component. Follows the MVC pattern (HTML sep. from PHP, JavaScript sep. from HTML, CSS sep from HTML. It has skinnig capabilities. Great debugging. Very good community presence. The devs are highly active in the help forums.

I don’t really understand what jQpie can do that Jquery can’t :s

Comment by j — March 29, 2007

jQpie is a programming library for Jquery, its not meant to replace it but instead enhance and make it easier to use

I too, fail to see the point of this. It seems only to complicate the interaction between (the elegantly simple) JQuery and the PHP backend. Plus littering your XHTML source with script blocks kinda goes against the whole unobtrusiveness of JQuery.

Or maybe i’m missing the point?

Very nice… I love the autocomplete feature!

I always use jQuery and I’m very glad to hear about jQPie!
