Prototype is a JavaScript framework that aims to ease development of dynamic web applications featuring a toolkit for class-driven development and a Ajax library.


The Prototype framework of the ea-Geier are located under the 3party/prototype folder and loaded via

<script type="text/javascript" src="{$prototype}prototype.js"></script>

Online documentation, API description, etc are available on the Prototype homepage.


The Prototype library will be bundled with production releases.

But as 3rd-party product it will not be checked into the repository.

If the Prototype code is missing in your ea-Geier distribution, please download it from the Prototype homepage.

Unzip the code into the 3party/prototype/ folder – e.g.:


and make sure the eaPROTOTYPE definition is configured properly. To do this, open the the file code/config.php. Look for eaPROTOTYPE and change the value to the name of the folder you have just uploaded – e.g.:

define('eaPROTOTYPE', '3party/prototype/prototype-');
