Ajax design - The more little UI widgets I add to my project, the harder it is to maintain a coherent directory structure. Any tips or articles on how to maintain an intelligent directory/site structure on Ajax projects, where you have N number of little UI widgets that are retrieved on demand?

Can you be more specific about the problem?

Are you saying that all your little widgets are in separate files?

If so, why?

Make a logical grouping of which functions are likely to be required on the same page and put all those functions into the same file. That way your pages have fewer <script> tags. You might waste a bit of bandwidth for each file you include, but that's probably better than having multiple includes which make for multiple server hits.

But yes, more detail would help. Maybe I've misinterpreted the problem.
