Too many libraries, not enough librarians

Jeremy's thoughts on JavaScript libraries.

There’s a lot of talk about JavaScript libraries, including a lot of hype and cheerleading, but I think that maybe the discussion is disproportionate to the amount of people actually using libraries.

Spot on. As Jeremy says, a quick and non-scientific poll @media showed that only a minority of JavaScript developers use a library; the others just code by hand.

But JavaScript libraries are cool nowadays and will remain so until the Ajax hype blows over.
