    RxJS Experimental Compat Module

    The Reactive Extensions for JavaScript has a number of operators that are considered experimental and not ready for mainstream usage. This includes imperative operators such as if, case, for, while, doWhile as well as operators such as forkJoin. This requires rx.lite.compat.js from the rx-lite-compat NPM module. This module has support for older browsers which do not support ES5 functionality, hence the name compat.

    Getting Started

    There are a number of ways to get started with RxJS.

    Installing with NPM

    ```bash` $ npm install rx-lite-experimental-compat $ npm install -g rx-lite-experimental-compat

    ### Using with Node.js and Ringo.js
    var Rx = require('rx-lite-experimental-compat');

    In a Browser:

    <!-- Just the core RxJS -->
    <script src="path/to/rx.lite.compat.js"></script>
    <script src="path/to/rx.lite.experimental.compat.js"></script>

    There are lots of ways to contribute to the project, and we appreciate our contributors. If you wish to contribute, check out our style guide.

    You can contribute by reviewing and sending feedback on code checkins, suggesting and trying out new features as they are implemented, submit bugs and help us verify fixes as they are checked in, as well as submit code fixes or code contributions of your own. Note that all code submissions will be rigorously reviewed and tested by the Rx Team, and only those that meet an extremely high bar for both quality and design/roadmap appropriateness will be merged into the source.
