Описание: Prototype is a wonderful JavaScript library aimed at easing dynamic web application development. Its close friend, script.aculo.us. provides a lot of user interface-oriented features with a high wow factor (still), such as drag and drop, autocompletion, mouse-driven element sorting, awesome visual effects, and in-place editing. It's all at your fingertips. with only a couple lines of script.

The close relation between the two lies in that they both originated in the Ruby on Rails universe, as Rails "spin-offs." They are provided with Rails but can be obtained separately on their official web sites and are actually backend-agnostic: you can use them over PHP, .NET, J2EE, Python, Delphi, or anything else that helps you produce dynamic web pages. And indeed, thousands of developers do just that every day. Also, script.aculo.us relies on Prototype, and both libraries are written in a consistent style.

These libraries will, quite simply, rock your world. You will discover, as I and countless others have, that client-side web page development does not need to be gruesome, kludgy. or even dull. It can be expressive, productive, efficient, clean, portable, and intellectually pleasing. It can call to our technical sense of aesthetics, and most important, it can be a huge amount of fun.
