PrototypeHelper and ScriptaculousHelper

First, if this is not the place to post, then please ask me to repost
to the proper list so we can handle this thread there.

I'm currently working on d-rails (http://github.com/foobarfighter/d-
rails/tree/master) which is a plugin for a Dojo implementation of RJS
and other helpers which currently use the Prototype library for client
side support. I was wondering if there was any thought given to a
more JS toolkit agnostic approach for Rails 3. My ideal
implementation would be something that provided a basic architecture
and a standard API for passing callbacks and options which could be
implemented by a toolkit specific driver and configured by the user.

A friend of mine recently told me that this approach was currently
underway, but I can neither confirm nor deny his claims. I would love
to help from the Dojo perspective if possible. Who do I need to talk
to and are my friends claims true?

Regards,
Bob

This is currently *intended* to get underway after we ship 2.3 final,
e.g. for the 3.0 release. However I'm not aware of anything underway at
present.

My advice would be to start experimenting on the changes you think you'd
need to accomplish your goal. Then let us know what it looks like.
That'd be the easiest way for you to ensure that whatever happens meets
your needs.

Michael,

Thanks for the reply. When I am finished with d-rails for the current version of Rails (expected in about two weeks or so) then I will get started on a proposal for how a more JS toolkit agnostic approach could work in Rails 3.
