★ Maverick - a small Javascript-based MVC framework

Maverick lets you

  • separate application logic (controller) from $views and data gathering ($models)
  • create $views and instantiate them with different context
  • route URIs to $controllers using regular expressions
  • use centralized event handling
  • change URI on browser address bar without refreshing the page (fallback to hash updating)
  • execute multiple model calls at a time and provide a single callback function
  • organize file structure the way you want (so that later you can combine all $views, $models and $controllers into a single .js file in production for better page speed)
  • and much more.

Maverick is right for you if...

  • You want a framework with a small footprint.
  • You need exceptional performance.
  • You want a framework that requires nearly zero configuration.
  • You want a framework that applies strict variable scoping and access policies.
  • You want a framework that does not require you to adhere to restrictive coding rules.

5 globally scoped variables

  • $models
  • $views
  • $controllers
  • $routes
  • $uri

These variables are used to start and stop $views and $controllers, access the state of the application (mostly derived from the URI), and to create and remove $routes.
