A lightweight JavaScript component framework

widgetjs is a lightweight framework in JavaScript to separate web applications in multiples reusable components called widgets.

import {Widget} from "widgetjs";

class MyWidget extends Widget {
    constructor() {
        this.el.innerHTML = "<h1>Welcome to widgetjs!</h1>";
        this.on("dom:click h1", function() {
            window.location = "http://widgetjs.neoname.eu";

new MyWidget().appendTo(document.body);
  • Uses simple class inheritance.
  • Provides an events system separate from the DOM.
  • Provides life-cycle management for visual components.
  • Can be used with or without jQuery.

Read the documentation here

widgetjs is not a full featured framework that can handle all aspects of a web application like network communications or routing, there already exists good libraries for that. widgetjs only handles one aspect of web development: separation of visual components into independant entities. So it provides only features to serve that goal, namely widgets, events and lifecycle management.

To install:

npm install widgetjs

Or download it on https://unpkg.com/widgetjs/
