Thanks for this article, it is good to read about the challenges I will most likely face down the road. It is my first time now working on developing a web application frontend as the only developer, and I oftern face the temptation of “can we just …”. I will try hard to keep things in perspective and avoid, quick and dirty solutions.
By the way, jquery UI allowes you to strip the library and only include sections you use: http://jqueryui.com/download/ so it is often actually a very good choice for building UI because you can add any other widgers or effects etc in future without having to search and test another plugin. Jquery UI has a very minimalistic approach and I find many of its widgets and effects are relevant to most web applications.
