This project is a jQuery substitute for modern browsers and mobile devices. But instead of offering some wrappers and own dynamics, it simply provides helper functions to achieve the same objectives as jQuery or Zepto.

Even though keeping compactness is the primary concern of this library, it does contain lightweight versions of some concepts/components, including MVC.

So far, it has Ajax, Date, Deferred, Events, Helpers, Stack, Templates, Timers, Vars and When components on its core.

Additionally Anim, CSS, DOM, Forms, Keys, MVC and Touch will be available in web bundle.
