Jam

For front-end developers who crave maintainable assets, Jam is a package manager for JavaScript. Unlike other repositories, we put the browser first by using AMD modules.

  • Manage dependencies - Using a stack of script tags isn't the most maintainable way of managing dependencies, with Jam packages and AMD modules you get automatic dependency resolution.

  • Fast and modular - Faster load times with asynchronous loading and the ability to optimize downloads. AMD provides properly namespaced and more modular code.

  • Use with existing stack - Jam manages only your front-end assets, the rest of your app can be written in your favourite language or framework. Node.js tools can use the repository directly with the Jam API.

  • Custom builds - No more configuring custom builds of popular libraries. Now, every build can be optimized automatically depending on the parts you use, and additional components can always be loaded later.

  • Focus on size - Installing multiple versions works great on the server, but client-side we don't want five versions of jQuery! Jam can use powerful dependency resolution to find a working set of packages using only a single version of each.

  • 100% browser - Every package you see here will work in the browser and play nicely with AMD loaders like RequireJS. We're not hijacking an existing repository, we're creating a 100% browser-focused community!
