    Question Adobe Spry 31 May 2011 @ 09.54

    Hey there,

    Was just checking out Adobe's Spry JS framework. Does anyone else use this , it looks really useful but I'm wondering whether there's anything it can do which can#t be done with JQuery and whether it's better to concentrate my efforts on mastering JQuery and not put any other frameworks into the mix? Let me know what you think, any advice would be appreciated.

    thx

    I use jQuery, and I absolutely love it. I have not used Spry. From what I've read, however, Spry is easier to pick up but jQuery is more powerful.

    Question 31 May 2011 @ 16.33

    Hey thanks for the reply,

    Yeah I use JQuery and have been using it for about a year now. After getting used to all of those fiddly braces and brackets I can finally do some pretty cool stuff with it so I guess my question was should I stay with it and is it necessary to use any other js frameworks? Every developer job I see advertised only mentions JQuery and very occasionally glow.

    Spry looks impressive indeed but as far as I can see, it is only doing what JQuery Ajax load() can already do.

    I may of course be talking nonsense as I am still young as a developer but that's just the issue at the center of it all. So many frameworks/technologies/languages to become a good all round developer and not enough time which is why I need advice from those in the know.

    I wouldn't take the time to learn it. If you master jQuery, you can probably code just fine with any other JS framework with some help from the docs. (If you even ever need to)
