Dojo does the same thing, and while not quite as popular as jQuery (they're
probably the top 2 JS frameworks by popularity: jQuery 11.6 Mhits on search,
Dojo 7.7 Mhits though the latter are boosted by some accidental hits;-) it
was deliberately designed to be somewhat Pythonic (as the designers are big
fans and users of Python) -- for example Dojo's underlying support for
asynchronous operations rests on a "deferred" object that closely mimics the
one originally developed as part of the popular "Twisted" Python framework
for asynchronous network programming.
