@swim/view provides a unified HTML, SVG, and Canvas view hierarchy, with integrated controller architecture, animated procedural styling, and constraint-based layouts. @swim/view is part of the @swim/ui framework.
For an npm-managed project,
npm install @swim/view to make it a dependency.
TypeScript sources will be installed into
node_modules/@swim/view/lib/main. And a pre-built UMD script can
be found in
Browser applications can load
swim-ui.js—which bundles the @swim/view
library—along with its
swim-core.js dependency, directly from the swimOS CDN.

@swim/view can be imported as an ES6 module from TypeScript and other ES6-compatible environments.
import * as view from "@swim/view";
@swim/view can also be used as a CommonJS module in Node.js applications.
var view = require("@swim/view");
When loaded by a web browser, the
swim-ui.js script adds all
@swim/view library exports to the global
swim namespace. The
swim-ui.js script requires that
swim-core.js has already been loaded.
swim-system.js script also adds all @swim/view library exports
to the global
swim namespace, making it a drop-in replacement for
swim-ui.js when additional @swim/system
libraries are needed.
