better-dom: Live extension playground
NPM version Build Status Coverage Status NPM downloads

API DOCUMENTATION

This library is about ideas. After some time of using jQuery I found that it's just too big, has lack of features I need and the API design is debatable. In particular live extensions was one of the main ideas that encouraged me to build a new library from scratch.

Vanilla DOM also has a lot of bad parts, that I'm trying to fix by providing a JavaScript wrapper for each DOM element you use in code. This extra layer allows to abstract from legacy interfaces and to add new methods on the top of particular elements without touching vanilla DOM prototypes. So the object model used is very different from what jQuery does.

Note, that the better-dom project is only about the DOM. It does not contain any AJAX or BOM helper.

This will clone the latest version of the better-dom with dependencies into the bower_components directory at the root of your project. Then just include the script below on your web page:

The project uses set of ES6 transpilers to compile the output file. You can use command below to start development:
