Why does JavaScript Framework redirect here? A JavaScript Framework is different from the generic "JavaScript library". A JavaScript library is, as this articles says, just any collection of JavaScript functions that makes coding easier. However, a JavaScript Framework is a specific type of library. It exists primarily to create a baseline between browsers that have different DOM implementations. They create universality in 1) selection / manipulation of events, and 2) handling events. This includes jQuery, YUI, MooTools, and Prototype. How can we have a "Comparison of JavaScript frameworks" page without a page explaining JavaScript frameworks?

This article seems useless because the (short) content is mainly made of references to libraries that actually are Ajax frameworks. A redirect to Ajax Framework would be a better choice. Macaldo (talk) 13:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

There is a difference between a JavaScript library and an Ajax framework. Some JavaScript libraries serve as Ajax frameworks, but not all, and many libraries have nothing to do with Ajax. Dilvie (talk) 07:49, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Maintenance and rating of JavaScript articles[edit]

Concerning editing and maintaining JavaScript-related articles...


If you are interested in collaborating on JavaScript articles or would like to see where you could help, stop by Wikipedia:WikiProject JavaScript and feel free to add your name to the participants list. Both editors and programmers are welcome.

Where to list JavaScript articles[edit]

We've found over 300 JavaScript-related articles so far. If you come across any others, please add them to that list.

User scripts[edit]

The WikiProject is also taking on the organization of the Wikipedia community's user script support pages. If you are interested in helping to organize information on the user scripts (or are curious about what we are up to), let us know!

If you have need for a user script that does not yet exist, or you have a cool idea for a user script or gadget, you can post it at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests. And if you are a JavaScript programmer, that's a great place to find tasks if you are bored.

How to report JavaScript articles in need of attention[edit]

If you come across a JavaScript article desperately in need of editor attention, and it's beyond your ability to handle, you can add it to our list of JavaScript-related articles that need attention.

Rating JavaScript articles[edit]

At the top of the talk page of most every JavaScript-related article is a WikiProject JavaScript template where you can record the quality class and importance of the article. Doing so will help the community track the stage of completion and watch the highest priority articles more closely.
