3. Ext JS
Ext is similar to Jquery and Prototype providing the same functionality using different syntax, the DOM model can be accessed using the Ext framework as well as Ajax applications can be developed. It is compatible with Jquery and Prototype even though it is an entirely different library. Ext is very easy to use as it has predefined UI objects that can be instantly called into a web page, these controls include text areas, toolbars and radio buttons among several others.
4. Dojo Toolkit
It provides everything you need to build a Web app. Language utilities, UI components, and more, all in one place, designed to work together perfectly.
Developers can create new visual effects also.
7. Umbrella JS
Umbrella JS is strongly influenced by jquery with many similar methods so you'll feel at ease developing with Umbrella.However there are also some improvements such as with .ajax(), .append(), etc.
It is of 3kb when gzipped means it will load in a snap on mobile. The core is reusable so new features are also tiny.
Tested and Performant
The speed is similar to jquery and there are many tests, including performance ones.
That's it, there are many other jQuery alternatives, but we have discussed few only, which are popular. My recommendation is to stick with jQuery only, as it is widely used and as many developers are already using it, you can find questions/article of jQuery on our website too easily.
