Initially when I started working on Altertunes, I was unaware of the various frameworks which one can use for his website. Though I never have used any of them for Altertunes (main reason being the eagerness to do everything by myself), but may be some of you out there might be interested in having a look at the same:
- Prototype Windows Class : Another master piece which allows your website to have all those fancy popups, fade-in and fade-out effect.
Probably you will find hundred’s of them in the market right now. Above I have listed a few which I tried atleast once and got good performance. However there are various factors which decide what Ajax framework you should choose for your site. Most important being:
- Red5 : It is an opensource flash server written in Java that supports Streaming audio and video, recording client streams and many other useful things which openlaszlo fails to do currently. So if you are looking to develop a voice chat application, Red5 is the way to go.
Above are just a few which I found useful on my way to Altertunes. There are several more untouched by me, which might be more powerful than the those I have listed above. If you find any, kindly post the same as comment here.
Happy Frameworking and web developement 😉
