Ben.JS is a tiny small JavaScript single-page-application (SPA) framework. It provides an easy to learn model-view-controller concept to build SPAs in a fast and easy way. Ben.js is based on jQuery. The framework was inspired by Googles Angular.js, Facebooks react and Ember.js. All these frameworks provide comprehensive libraries predetermined strict patterns. In contrast, Ben.JS provides a very clear and simple MVC approach.
