For those who don’t know, Mocha UI is a web interface library based on JavaScript framework MooTools.

I think it’s pretty good and best suited for web applications (which provides desktop like look and feel/features)

What do you guys think of it, do you think it’s over bloated or should i stick with jQuery?

The application i am building provides more desktop like features (but the design is different), so will this be best suited for it or do you guys have any other frameworks in mind?

From a superficial look into it, I’d have to say ExtJS is far more advanced. I’m guessing MochaUI is geared more toward those who prefer to use Mootools instead of ExtJS, but seriously, with how advanced, aged and well supported ExtJS is, I think it’s the better choice. But then, I unfortunately don’t know how well they compare in terms of browser speed and support.

@ugotsta .. ExtJS is commercial but definitely good! MooTools is great and being free and open-source, I guess it’s a winner.

@Dhruv .. I’ve noticed that apps made in MooTools are much more smoother and leaner than apps made in jQuery and I’m talking about the ones I’ve made myself.

Thanks, ExtJs does look good and i will definitely consider it in future.

@daniyal

That’s really cool as everybody i see uses jQuery (and it’s best) but other libraries are no less either. I will stick with Mocha UI for this project.

Thank you.
