Existing JavaScript frameworks

On the Internet, I haven't seen many usable JavaScript frameworks until now. There are very much usable sites (such as Quirksmode), that figure out browser differences for JavaScript, but mostly it's just a short script per problem;I haven't seen this structured in a framework.

For my customers I have written different JavaScript utility classes that help the programmer to focus on business logic. Some key features of these scripts:

  • Resolution detection

  • Flash detection (detect if Flash version x is available)

  • Event management: register multiple events for the event types onload, onresize, onmousemove

  • Simplifies integration of FCK editor in forms

  • Integration with Taconit (Ajax framework)

  • Get very much info about the screen (resolution, window size, document size)
