Vidom is just a library to build UI. It's highly inspired and based on ideas from React. Its main goal is to provide as fast as possible lightweight implementation with API similar to React. According to the corresponding benchmarks Vidom is 6x faster in Chrome, 5x faster in Firefox, 2x faster in IE and up to 12x faster in server-side rendering than React.

Main features

  • Fast virtual DOM builder and patcher under the hood
  • Fast server-side rendering with ability to reuse existing DOM in the browsers also known as isomorphism.
  • Easy and clear way to subscribe to DOM Events
  • API to build your own high-level components
  • Namespaces support (e.g., SVG, MathML)
  • Ability to render multiple components without unwanted DOM wrappers
  • No extra markup in the result HTML
  • JSX support via babel plugin
  • Small footprint, 9KB after gzip
  • Zero dependencies
