We actually migrated from DojoToolkit to Mootools. We started off with
dojo because it seemed ideal for our needs - here were a bunch of
widgets that we could wrap up and use from the server side. However, we
quickly discovered that they don't really put any stock in object
models, so the widgets were generally one-shot deals. Once you'd made it
and put it up on the screen, that was how it was going to be. Now, we
had a dynamic server model that allowed us to change anything on the
client we wanted anytime we wanted.. the two approaches didn't mesh.
After using Dojo for a while, we got more confident, learnt Mootools and
realized we could make the widgets ourselves.
Also, I would definitely classify Dojo in the 'bloated' category :)
