HTML is great for declaring static documents, but it falters when we try to use it for declaring dynamic views in web-applications. AngularJS lets you extend HTML vocabulary for your application. The resulting environment is extraordinarily expressive, readable, and quick to develop.
Prototype takes the complexity out of client-side web programming. Built to solve real-world problems, it adds useful extensions to the browser scripting environment and provides elegant APIs around the clumsy interfaces of Ajax and the Document Object Model.
Enyo up to 1.x was the underlying framework used to develop applications for HP’s TouchPad tablet. Enyo as shipped on the TouchPad included an complete set of user interface components and service wrappers. What you will find here is Enyo 2, what we informally call core: the primary infrastructure needed to support any number of Enyo-based libraries. Not to worry, Enyo 1.x itself is open-source licensed, and work is progressing on packaging up those controls and goodies to work with Enyo 2.
Enyo was designed from the beginning to be highly extensible. This repository reflects a small working set of code, that can be expanded with any number of libraries or plugins. Enyo 2 is lightweight, easy to digest, and powerful.
Sammy tries to achieve this by providing a small ‘core’ framework and an ever-growing list of plugins for specific functionality. The core includes a simple API for defining applications which are made up primarily of routes and events. By driving application development around a small and specific API, Sammy attempts to keep your code organized while still allowing a lot of breathing room to define your own style and structure.
Dojo saves you time and scales with your development process, using web standards as its platform. It’s the toolkit experienced developers turn to for building high quality desktop and mobile web applications.
Spry was designed to feel like an extension of HTML and CSS, so anyone with basic web-production skills can create next-generation web experiences by adding the power of Ajax to their pages.
Spry can be used with any server-side technology (ColdFusion, PHP, ASP.Net etc.). By building the front-end of your web application with Spry you enable a more efficient designer-developer workflow by keeping UI separated from back-end application logic.
Joosy claims to be conventions-centric. Concentrate on what you should do and not on how to achieve it. Incredible productivity out of box.
jQuery getting too big? The primary goal of this project would be for the feedback/demand to kickstart jquery.com into re-organizing its code-base so it’s more modular since we believe we’ve proved the most useful parts of jQuery is a fraction of its code-base.
AmplifyJS is a set of components designed to solve common web application problems with a simplistic API. Amplify’s goal is to simplify all forms of data handling by providing a unified API for various data sources. Amplify’s store component handles persistent client-side storage, using standards like localStorage and sessionStorage, but falling back on non-standard implementations for older browsers. Amplify’s request adds some additional features to jQuery’s ajax method while abstracting away the underlying data source.
We think good interfaces should be easy to use and easy to build. Infusion takes the pain out of developing accessible, high performance, clean and nimble front-ends for applications that want to do more. Our approach is to leave you in control – it’s your interface, using your markup, your way.
Ext JS offers an extraordinary range of user interface widgets. High performance scalable grids, trees, menus, and more. If you need it, we’ve probably already built it. And even if it’s not in the core library, you’re almost certain to find it in the thousands of user extensions from our million-strong Sencha community.
