Wire.js is an Inversion of Control (IOC) Container for Javascript. It takes a wiring spec as input, and creates, connects, manages, and destroys components in your application. It can be used both at startup time to bootstrap an application, or at runtime to bring whole sections of an application into and out of existence as needed.
