Evolution of JavaScript Frameworks for HTML 5

“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 for:

  • 2D drawing
  • Media
  • Browser history
  • Cross-document messaging
  • Drag & drop
  • Client-side persistent storage
  • Server-sent events
  • and more…

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
