[sf-perl] [javascript] JS toolkit for Perl applications

I recommend jQuery.  I've done a fair bit in YUI too and while it's very powerful, it's also very heavyweight and toolkit-y and therefore unlikely to make a Perl hacker happy.

One tip: if you're using jQuery *do* use the compatibility mode, in which your jQuery magic-chain-function is called $j and not just $ - that will save you tons of debugging headache and prevent non-jQuery JS developers from hating you.

One other: if the primary UI component happens to be a dynamic sortable table, YUI might be worth it after all, because their data table implementation is really really good.

Oh and another: if you need charts, check out Flot.

A bit off topic, but wondering what people are using for Javascript
toolkits for their Perl based web applications.

JQuery? MooTools? YUI?
