Joshfire framework

Open Source Multi-device JavaScript framework created and maintained by Joshfire.

The current version of the framework builds upon Backbone.js and require.js. Main features include:

  • common views at the core of each application (e.g. layout, list, slide panel)
  • an adapter mechanism to tweak the code of certain views when they are run on certain families of devices
  • a build system to compile the JavaScript code of an application
  • a logging system based on Woodman with a pre-compiler to remove logging code before compilation to save size.
  • a few utility classes for usual functionalities.

As opposed to previous versions of the framework, the current version does not impose a particular declaration mechanism for the structure of an app. The router/controller of the app is entirely up to the app developer.

Please note that, while the framework is actively being maintained, the "doc" and "examples" folders are leftovers of the previous version and do not match the current framework. In particular, the examples do not work. Documentation and examples will be updated when time allows...

The documentation of the deprecated previous version can still be checked in the v0.9 branch:
