Wanting to survey what the current state of the art in Rails Ajax development is, I asked this question on twitter:
I got a lot of great responses! 44 last time I checked. Here’s what I found out people are doing:
- JQuery templates
- Hitting RESTFUL endpoints and responding with JSON data to be manipulated on the client
- Using backbone.js
- Rendering partials and updating elements on the page with their raw content (the original old-school Rails way of doing it)
- Use SammyOnRails
What do you think? What did we miss?
