Rails and Django - AJAX (part 10/15)
Rails and Django have very different philosophies about the roles of a framework with regard to AJAX.
In this way, you are free to choose any AJAX toolkit you want, and integrate it with your Django application. (For example, the Dojo toolkit is well regarded).
Thus, I really appreciate what the Rails team has done with AJAX. Anything to get me quicker to my goal of a well-oiled, quality web site, the better. The fact they've established a strong foundation with the rjs template idea, all the better.
Django's serialization is under development.
Conclusion: I rate Rails a 4 and Django a 3 (I'm being generous to Django taking on faith that it's not so hard to roll your own AJAX with what they provide).
