    Same video on Peertube:

    Source code:

    const atlastk = require('atlastk');
    const BODY = `
     <input id="Input" data-xdh-onevent="Submit" value="World"/>
     <button data-xdh-onevent="Submit">Hello</button>
      <output id="Output">Greetings displayed here!</output>
    const callbacks = {
     "": (dom, id) => dom.inner("", BODY,
      () => dom.focus("Input")),
     "Submit": (dom, id) => dom.getValue("Input",
      (name) => dom.setValue("Output", "Hello, " + name + "!",
       () => dom.setValue("Input", "",
        () => dom.focus("Input")))),
    atlastk.launch(() => new atlastk.DOM(), callbacks);

    See for yourself right now - it's quick and easy!

    Online, with nothing to install

    Thanks to Replit, an online IDE, you can write and run programs using the Atlas toolkit directly in your web browser, without having to install Node.js on your computer About online demonstrations.

    To see some examples, like the following TodoMVC application or the above "Hello, World!" program, simply:

    • go here (also accessible with the Run on button at the top of this page),
    • click on the green run button,
    • choose the demonstration to launch,
    • open the then displayed URL in a browser (should be clickable),
    • … and, as you wish, run your own tests directly in your browser, by modifying the code of the examples or by writing your own code.


    With Node.js on your computer

    git clone
    cd atlas-node
    npm install
    cd examples
    node Hello/main.js

    Your turn

    If you want to take your code to the next level, from CLI to GUI, then you found the right toolkit.

    With the Atlas toolkit, you transform your programs in modern web applications (SPA) without the usual hassles:

    • no front-end JavaScript to write; only HTML(/CSS) and Node.js,
    • no front and back end architecture to bother with,
    • no web server (Apache, Nginx…) to install,
    • no need to deploy your application on a remote server,
    • no incoming port to open on your internet box or routeur.

    The Atlas toolkit is written in pure Node.js, with no native code and no dependencies, allowing the Atlas toolkit to be used on all environments where Node.js is available.

    And simply by running them on a local computer connected to internet, applications using the Atlas toolkit will be accessible from the entire internet on laptops, smartphones, tablets…

    Content of the repository

    The atlastk directory contains the JavaScript source code for Node.js of the Atlas toolkit, which is not needed to run the examples.

    The node_modules directory (not provided by the repository, but will be created when launching npm install) contains the files that are needed in order to use the Atlas toolkit.

    The examples directory contains some examples.

    To launch an example (from within the repository):

    • launch npm install (this have only to be do once),
    • cd examples,
    • launch node <Name>/main.js,

    where <Name> is the name of the example (15-puzzle, Blank, Chatroom…). For example node Hello/main.js.


    npm i atlastk
