comment Support multiple frameworks in a JavaScript library
+1 because these are the reasons I chose to include the dependency on prototype.js in the first place!! If I had to write everything from scratch I don't think I would have been interested (or possible since I do this in my free time).

So how would you approach the issue of rewriting prototype/jquery/whatever functionality to include in your library? For example, something as simple as say.. selectors? Being able to say $$('.myclass') is something I almost take for granted..

comment Support multiple frameworks in a JavaScript library
Thanks for the answer. I can definitely see your point about introducing a dependency on a huge library when it is only partially used. Right now it uses prototype's "class" stuff, selectors, enumerable, and various utilities. It isn't so much that it couldn't be rewritten in plain JS but enough that it would be a pain. I guess I could just include the parts I need from prototype.js...

+1 because I think relevancy is a basic but necessary requirement.

Is this the link meta.stackexchange.com/questions/10174/…? Personally, I also feel the disclosure is necessary.

Is financial gain the main determination? Playing devil's advocate... what if the library was free but getting support was not? I'd directly benefit by promoting my library over another.
