Ample SDK - JavaScript GUI Framework
Ample SDK is a standard-based cross-browser JavaScript GUI Framework
for building client-side Rich Internet Applications. It employs XML
technologies (such as XUL, SVG or HTML5) for UI layout, CSS for UI style
and JavaScript with DOM3 or jQuery-like APIs for application logic.
It equalizes browsers and brings technologies support to those missing any.
Running on source:
There are 2 options to run Ample SDK from source. First (slow) involves an HTTP web-server,
the other (fast) requires the Apache web-server with mod_rewrite, PHP and .htaccess support.
Note! It is not possible to run Ample SDK source version from the file system.
1. Running with any HTTP web server
In this scenario server returns source-only "loader" files which make additional
requests for all other files referenced from it that make up certain library.
2. Running with Apache HTTP web server with mod_rewrite, .htaccess support and PHP
In this scenario server redirects the requests to ample/source-builder.php script that
concatenates source folders contents into single files on the fly. This is faster
compared to the first option.
Building with Ant:
The build script is located in "build.xml". Before running the script, verify and
adjust path to your PHP executable and build destination in ""
Pre-built distributives:
The latest stable build is available on Ample SDK website:
