Here’s my presentation from the October 27, 2010 vienna.js meetup!
Links from the presentation:
- Zepto.js project on GitHub
- Aerogel Wikipedia article
- Cute cat picture*
Interesting numbers from the article (library sizes in bytes):
jQuery 1.4.3: 180,477 uncompressed, 77,745 minified, 26,711 minified and gzipped
Prototype 1.7_rc3: 160,122 uncompressed, 86,919 minified, 26,617 minified and gzipped
Zepto.js (2010/10/27): 8,788 uncompressed, 5,816 minified, 2,368 minified and gzipped
You can also download the slides (PDF, 12MB).
Please do have fun with Zepto and create awesome mobile sites with it (I hear it works great for browser extensions for Chrome and Safari, too!). And, of course, please contribute back! Patches, documentation, demos—everything is very welcome!

Big shout out to Samo Korošec for designing the Zepto.js logo and beta web site! Your mad design skillz rule!
*every presentation needs at least one picture of cute cats
**Prototype is now smaller then jQuery, when did that happen??
