<p style="font-size: 130%;">WireIt is an open-source javascript library to create <b>web wirable interfaces</b> for <b>dataflow applications</b>, <b>visual programming languages</b>, <b>graphical modeling</b>, or <b>graph editors</b>.</p>

<p class="title">Presentation</p>
<p>Here are the main component classes (bottom-up order):</p>
<ul>
<li>Wire - create wires in browsers</li>
<li>Terminal - wire endpoints and edition widget</li>
<li>Container - general "box" containing one or more terminals</li>
<li>Layer - handle multiple containers and wires</li>
<li>WiringEditor - single-page editor for your <i>visual language</i>.</li>
</ul>
<p>Different types of Container are provided :</p>
<ul>
<li>InOutContainer - simple module with named inputs and outputs</li>
<li>FormContainer - build form containers based on <a href="http://javascript.neyric.com/inputex/">inputEx</a> forms</li>
<li>ImageContainer - use images as graph nodes</li>
</ul>
<p>You can <a href="guide.html#createContainers">create your own container</a> by subclassing the base <i>Container</i> class, and still benefit from the drop-in use of the WiringEditor in your web application.</p>
<p>The WiringEditor requires a connection to a database to use save/load features. You can customize it using <a href="guide.html#adapters">adapters</a>. WireIt provides default adapters to get you started :</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="guide.html#ajaxAdapter">Ajax Adapter (no backend provided)</a></li>
<li><a href="guide.html#jsonRPCAdapter">Json-RPC Adapter + a sample PHP/MySQL backend</a></li>
<li><a href="guide.html#gearsAdapter">Gears Adapter (no backend required)</a></li>
</ul>
<p>WireIt supports all <a href="http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/articles/gbs/">A-Grade Browsers</a>. Please report your issues with specific browsers in <a href="http://groups.google.com/group/wireit/">the forum</a>. It uses the <a href="http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/">YUI library</a> (2.8.0r4) for DOM and events manipulation, and <a href="http://excanvas.sourceforge.net/">excanvas</a> for IE support of the canvas tag.</p>
<p class="title">Documentation</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="guide.html">WireIt's Guide</a> - the ultimate ressource</li>
<li><a href="doc/index.html">API documentation</a> built with <a href="http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/yuidoc/">YUI Doc</a></li>

<p>You can also get some help on the <a href="">forum</a>. Please report your issues or feature request on <a href="http://github.com/neyric/wireit/issues">the issue tracker</a>.</p>
<p>Deeper hacking into WireIt might require some knowledge in the libraries used :</p>
