Overview

Minified.js is a client-side JavaScript library that's both powerful and small. It offers jQuery-like features (DOM manipulation, animation, events, HTTP requests) and utility functions (collections, date&number formatting, date arithmetic, templates) with a single, consistent API.

Feature Comparison

The goal of Minified is to provide all the basics that you may need on an HTML page.
