    Bkb is a lightweight front-end framework. It is robust enough to be used in production, but the API is still not documented. And I will continue to redesign some part of the API until the version 1.0.0 will be published.

    Bkb is a non-opinionated framework. It does almost nothing:

    • No virtual DOM or templating (neither data binding);
    • No services (http, router, etc.);
    • No data structuring (redux, collections & models, …).

    To achieve these purposes, you will use the libraries you want.

    Bkb will help you to organize your code in a fashion that each part of your program is self contained and reusable. We call that a component (it is not a Web component). At runtime, each instance of a component is located in a tree. Like the DOM elements and events, a component has the ability to emit and listen to events of its children, parents, etc.

    This project is inspired from Backbone.js:

    In an ecosystem where overarching, decides-everything-for-you frameworks are commonplace, and many libraries require your site to be reorganized to suit their look, feel, and default behavior — Backbone should continue to be a tool that gives you the freedom to design the full experience of your web application.
