jQuery and DOJO- jQuery Turns Out to be the Champion


jQuery and DOJO both are top notch JavaScript Development Compact Frameworks which render wide range of functions for easing the process of code development so that it is much faster and efficient. DOJO is a comprehensive JavaScript Framework that will the web developers in building advanced Desktop and Mobile Web Applications whereas jQuery is a framework that will normalize things across various web browsers and thus helping you with DOM Manipulation at its best.

jQueyr vs DOJO

Taking a decision on the right JavaScript Framework will depends on several factors such as the Database Services Dependencies, Web Service Dependencies , Scalability ,Complexity of the Web Application, Present Skill Set and several other factors. JQuery framework provides minimal guidance on how one can structure the codebase, how to make sure that all the code that you need is popularly loaded, how to construct the code and deploy it into production ready files. Nevertheless DOJO actually shines smartly here however all you need to get used to using the framework. If your intent is develop a simple website or an application which will not require  enhancements with time in that case jQuery will just suit the best and serve the purpose but DOJO will add heavy-handedness if used.

DOJO has a complete set of user interface controls which give you the power for creating web application that are completely optimized in terms of accessibility, usability, performance, internationalization. DOJO toolkit mainly provides help for MVC structured application and is most part of it based on the MVC principles. DOJO provides integration with various content delivery networks for all the heavy duty web apps, widgets infrastructure, asynchronous loading of modules if required and lots more other functionalities.


Benefits of jQuery Framework


jQuery is a small (near about 30KB in size) , simple to use, fast and well documented

framework. JQuery has lots to offer the web developers such as several readymade plug-ins , easy to use Ajax Controls and amazing event handlers. Web Development is completely open and will happen publicly with the support of the members of jQuery community. You can easily create various Themes with jQuery as it has a Theme Roller application which provides you an insightful interface for downloading and designing custom themes for jQuery UI. jQuery as well has a technique known as Chaining in which you can run through multiple jQuery Commands one after another on the same element.


Both jQuery and DOJO are open source softwares. JQuery will allow easy interaction amongst JavaScript and HTML via the JavaScript Library and can be widely used for jandling events. Manipulating creating HTML documents, developing Ajax applications with PHP , ASP.net and Ajax. DOJO can be used for developing dynamic web user interfaces with the use of widgets, advanced level of I/O abstraction utilities. DOJO allows fast pace web development across various platforms between Ajax, JavaScript and Web Applications whereas jQuery will allow you to create customizable plug-ins library along with the built in JavaScript Libraries.


jQuery and DOJO

jQuery Versus DOJO

  • One of the most amazing killer feature of jQuery is that it is compatible with most of the web development languages such as ASP, Servlets, PHP , CGI and lots more whereas DOJO is a complete HTML and JavaScript based Toolkit which has achieved near about 40000 downloads across the world.
  • jQuery provides the developers with several UI libraries that have loads of useful functions. The adoption of jQuery is all time high because it is simple to use and provides you several customization features thus making it popular. Coming to DOJO is provides you the widget toolkit along with Drag and Drop Support feature, 2D Vector Drawing, 3D so if you want to create user interfaces that are dynamically innate then DOJO can actually serve the purpose.
  • Talking about the usage of jQuery and DOJO, SOJO is used for rapid web development of desktop and mobile internet applications without making use of the web browser’s inbuilt graphics technology. All the popular web browsers namely Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and all the Blackberry, Apple Smartphone’s use DOJO. In general jQuery is being used for dynamic web pages and web applications in particular by WordPress, Backbone and Wikipedia can be quoted.
  • jQuery lets you select one or more elements & group of DOM elements so that you can customize the properties of the DOM elements such as Add, Hide, Show, Subtract , find DOM element and lots more. DOJO on the other hand will provide you connection between DOM elements and the functions of DOJO easily. DOJO as well has several DOM elements , Style packages, SVG , HTML that allow you to handle and manipulate the power amongst DOM and SVG.


To conclude with when it is about jQuery and DOJO it can be said that jQuery is a way better than DOJO for the reason that :

  • DOJO  Toolkit requires the user to have a higher network bandwidth when compared to jQuery.
  • jQuery is a light weight framework whereas DOJO though it provides several customization options is heavy weight and bulky toolkit not serving the purpose.
  • As well DOJO Toolkit is not completely documented and the DOJO help tutorials are very less so it is difficult for developers to get in depth help with the development if they are using DOJO framework. So to get started with jQuery is always the best options because there are several easy to access tutorials available that can guide you.
  • jQuery has simply better performance because of regular updates and bug fixes form the dedicated jQuery community.


In my point of view DOJO lacks proper documentation ,lacks  proper reference codes, lacks marketing and has relative complexity which are not letting it become popular. As well the documentation that exists for DOJO is highly difficult to use because when you have a first look at it it will seem to be scattered and will appear to be more of API dependent than being task based.
