AlloyUI Robo Suit

AlloyUI is a framework built on top of YUI3 (JavaScript) that uses Bootstrap (HTML/CSS) to provide a simple API for building high scalable applications.

Browser Support

As an user interface framework we do care about browser support. Most of our modules use all the power of HTML5, so for old browsers we provide fallbacks in Flash.

Automated tasks

Provides a set of util tasks to work with AlloyUI project.

To change any default option from a task check Gruntfile.js. You can also overwrite those options via command-line, for example:

grunt command --option value


  1. Install NodeJS, if you don't have it yet.

    Some tasks requires you to have Ruby, Sass, and Compass installed. If you're on OS X or Linux you probably already have Ruby installed; test with ruby -v in your terminal. When you've confirmed you have Ruby installed, run gem update --system && gem install compass to install Compass and Sass.

  2. Install global dependencies:

    [sudo] npm install -g grunt-cli shifter yogi yuidocjs phantomjs grover istanbul
  3. Install local dependencies:

    npm install
  4. Initialize dependencies:

    grunt init


  • Build YUI and AlloyUI:

    grunt build
  • Build only YUI:

    grunt build:yui
  • Build only AlloyUI:

    grunt build:aui
  • Build single AlloyUI module:

    grunt build:aui --src src/aui-module-name


  • Watch and build for any changes:

    grunt watch
  • Watch and build for any single module changes:

    grunt watch --src src/aui-module-name


  • Create a new module under src/ folder:

The basic structure of the project is given in the following way:

  • build/ Contains AlloyUI and YUI generated files, once build task has been run. However, this directory is unnecessary for versioning, so it is ignored (.gitignore).
  • demos/ Contains basic examples of the AlloyUI modules.
  • src/ Contains the source code of the AlloyUI modules.
  • tasks/ Contains the source code of the Grunt tasks.
  • .alloy.json Specifies all dependencies and some configurations.
  • .editorconfig Specifies the coding style for different editors/IDEs.
  • .jsbeautifyrc Specifies the coding format rules for JSBeautify.
  • .jshintrc Specifies the linting configurations for JSHint.
  • .yeti.json Specifies the testing configurations for Yeti.
  • Defines the license agreement for AlloyUI.
  • Explains the AlloyUI project.
  • package.json Lists all NodeJS dependencies.


AlloyUI is maintained by these people and a bunch of awesome contributors.
