CxJS, or simply Cx, is a feature-rich JavaScript framework for building complex web front-ends, such as BI tools, dashboards and admin apps. Modern frameworks such as React and Angular provide an excellent base for building UI components, however, component implementation and many other application aspects are left to the developer to figure out. CxJS tries to fill that gap and provide the all necessary ingredients required for modern web applications.

Install & Start

This repository is used to develop main npm packages, documentation and gallery.

First, install the packages using npm or yarn. (Currently yarn is the preferred tool as npm is having issues around :link for symlinks - npm/npm#15900)

$ npm install

Build CxJS:

npm run build

Run docs:

npm start

Run gallery:

npm run gallery

Start a new project

CxJS is available as an NPM package - cx, which includes compiled code, source code and TypeScript definitions.

Besides the cx package, you'll need other packages such as cx-react (or cx-preact) and babel-plugin-transform-cx-jsx. You'll also need to configure Babel and webpack.

The quickest way to setup a new project is to use CLI:

md my-app
cd my-app
npm init -y
npm install cx-cli --global
cx scaffold
npm start


Once you create a new project, you may want to try our ready-to-use themes:

Install a theme using npm or yarn.

npm install cx-theme-frost

Open my-app/app/index.scss and replace

@import "~cx/src/variables"; 
@import "~cx/src/index";


@import "~theme-package-name/src/variables"; 
@import "~theme-package-name/src/index";

Please read theme documentation to learn how to enable theme specific features.
