(fab) - a streaming javascript framework

NOTE: (fab) is no longer under development.

(fab) is a lightweight toolkit that makes it easy to build asynchronous web apps. It takes advantage of the flexibility and functional nature of javascript to create a concise "DSL", without pre-compilation or magic scope hackery.

Here's an example of a "hello world" app:

module.exports = function( exports, imports ) {
  return imports( function( run, node$listen, route, html ) {
    with ( html ) return run

    ()
      ( node$listen, 0xFAB )

      ( HTML )
        ( BODY, { id: "show" } )
          ( "Hello, " )

          ( EM )
            ( route, /^\/(\w+)$/ )
              ( route.capture, 0 )
            ( /* else */ )
              ( "world!" )
          () //EM

          ( "!" )
        () //BODY
      () //HTML
    ();
  })
}

Getting started

To install (fab), use npm:

npm install fab

Then, from the (fab) directory in your node folder, launch the demo.js example:

fab demo.js

Look in the source of the demo to see how the app was built.
