An Introduction to jide.js - toolkit for developing rich, modern web applications | Javascript, node.js and dev tools |

jide.js is a new toolkit for creating modern web applications. It consists of a collection of useful controls and all the tools you need to create your own, application specific, components. jide.js fully embraces AMD (require.js) to allow you to pick only those parts of it that you truly need. Starting with version 1.0.0-beta3, you’ll also be able to use it with Browserify.

At its core, jide.js is built around observable values, event emitters, and data binding. It utilizes the features of modern browsers (IE9+) to create a solid cross platform experience and to leverage the features of the current JavaScript language instead of clinging to the past.


This article only serves as a brief introduction to jide.js. There are lots of other controls built into jide.js that help you create your application, and the presented style is only one way. If you prefer not to use templates at all, that’s fine too. You can, for example, use operations such as filter, map and sortto create live updating variants of your original data.

To learn more about jide.js, please visit the project website where you can find lots of examples, demos, and guides. You are also directed to the project’s GitHub repository.
