Prototype-less Big Cartel.

Big Cartel finally drops the Prototype library requirement for its JavaScript API:

Today we’re happy to announce that Big Cartel’s JavaScript API is 100% standalone and requires no other libraries. This means it works perfectly with jQuery, Prototype, MooTools, Dojo, YUI, or any other flavor of JavaScript you can throw at it. We’ve also got the size of our API down to a teeny 3.8KB, and improved the speed of our Ajax calls.

That would have been helpful before I re-wrote the parts of the API we needed for United Pixelworkers a few months back. Still, props to the guys and gals at BC for trimming the fat and removing a source of pain.
