Rico is an AJAX and general DHTML library that provides many effects and tools that are useful in AJAX applications. Rico includes cinematic effects, drag-and-drop support, and widgets called behaviors. Like scriptaculous (described in Chapter 8, "Libraries Used in Part II: Sarissa, Scriptaculous"), Rico builds on the prototype library and is comparable in scope to scriptaculous. Rico is known for its high-quality widgets, such as its accordion and datagrid widgets. Basic AJAX communication support is provided by a singleton communication manager.
