Essential Javascript Libraries

I was asked today what javascript libraries I used for dModeler (which my team created during the recent Red Bull Programming Competition) so I’ve compiled them below.

  • ImportXML – An incredibly handy library for importing remote XML data.
  • Dom-Drag – Add drag support to any DOM object. Very easy to use.
  • JSGraphics – Draw free-form shapes and lines using Javascript. Not terribly good for animations.

I consider these to be staples of doing a modern Web Application. I already use ImportXML for the new Schedule Maker and plan on using Dom-Drag too, for some schedule-adjusting niceness.
