Dojo vs. JQuery?

Asked by archaeopteryx (881points) March 20th, 2011

Hello Fluther,

I have recently started to use Dojo in my Django project, and I’ve been wondering, how does Dojo compare to JQuery?

Where can I find a (preferably recent) detailed comparison between the two amazing Javascript toolkits?

Thank you very much in advance.

I use both at work. I prefer jquery for it’s speed, succinctness, and consistency. However, if you are interested in UI/widgets/etc. I would recommend dojo. In my experience, dijit (the widgets built on top of dojo) are superior to jquery-ui.

Can both be used in the same project (e.g.: Dojo for widgets and JQuery for other stuff)?

However, if you plan to use dojo widgets, it’s probably easier to just use dojo core. Anything you want to do with jquery you can probably do with dojo core.

I’m partial to Jquery because of how fast it works things out.
Dojo is not for me
