3. Iwebkit iPhone/iPod touch framework
Iwebkit is the revolutionnairy kit used to create high quality iPhone and iPod touch websites in a few minutes. In the first 4 months of it's existance the pack has greatly evolved from a basic idea to a project that has reached worldwide fame!

4. Jitsu

These include an Xml markup language, page compiler, data binding engine, JavaScript runtime, control library, runtime inspector, animation engine, cross-platform library, Ajax, and back button support.

9. WUI Web UI Framework
WUI (Web User Interface) is an MVC framework for writing web UIs in a single language: Java. Write web apps with components, widgets & events, not JSPs. Runs in any servlet 2.3 container. Similar to Model 2 / Struts, only better. Apache-style license.

10. Butterfly Web UI
Butterfly Web UI is a component oriented web framework for Java, like Wicket or Tapestry. The main advantage compared to these frameworks is that Butterfly Web UI integrates naturally with Butterfly DI Container, giving you a state-of-the-art dependency injection container to help you structure and decouple the internal components of your web applications.

Jquery examples

Sean Nieuwoudt said...

ExtJs is pretty cool too, but I find UI libraries to be an "overkill" for most situations

Netwala said...

Another good post! Here are some more examples, I guess:


jebu_ittiachen said...

extjs [] definitely deserves a mention on this list.

Hasan Tayyar Be┼čik said...

yeah... I think JQuery UI should be in this list :)

FitzChivalry said...

I was looking at extjs but then found smartclient, which provides the back-end integration that extjs leaves for third-party libraries. Smartclient has everything that extjs has, and is free! They've got some new stuff in their 7.0beta that really rocks!

THEODIN said...

I agree with Hasan, Jquery UI is so well rounded and finnised, it definatly deserves a place on the list!

Stefan said...

Thanks for the Iwebkit iPhone/iPod touch framework link.

Your blog is great!

IT mill tool kit .. is a cool stuff.

Mahesh kumar said...

iUi seems to be a better fit for iPhone devs.

Paris Vega said...

Thanks for the resource.

Adem said...

Nice list :-).
what about RichFaces?


Ivan said...

One more addition to your list is DHTMLX toolkit, a set of 17 JavaScript/Ajax components, including datagrid, tree, tabbar, windows, etc. Available under both GPL/commercial licenses.

Thanks for the UI Links first of all.

And for everyone else posting links. We all know the "Pay" sites for the UI I think more people are just looking for a Free but Complete UI.

Mr. Mike said...

I can't believe that GWT (Google Web Toolkit) was not included in your list. It certainly ranks higher as a true development library since you write the code in Java and it creates the required HTML and JavaScript.

Thanks for list!
Extjs and GWT should be on the list
