This is Documentation for the Javascript library Prototype.


Prototype is a JavaScript framework that aims to ease development of dynamic web applications. Featuring a unique, easy-to-use toolkit for class-driven development and the nicest Ajax library around, Prototype is quickly becoming the codebase of choice for Web 2.0 developers everywhere.

Please be advised that prototype can adversely effect some existing javascripts and in places it secretly modifies some of JavaScripts default behavior. Before proceeding with prototype it is worth considering James Mc Parlane's Rejection of prototype.

The Documentation is split among the following pages:

Prototype Use In Bitweaver

You can find Bitweaver Packages that use Prototype and instructions for including the Prototype library in your package here: PrototypeUseInBitweaver
