As an user interface framework we do care about browser support. Most of our modules use all the power of HTML5, so for old browsers we provide fallbacks in Flash.

We use Gulp, a task-runner in Node, to automate things.
To discover the most commonly used tasks, run:
Install NodeJS <= v0.12.0, if you don't have it yet.
Install global dependencies:
[sudo] npm install -g gulp
- Install local dependencies:
- Initialize and fetch dependencies via Bower:
- Build AlloyUI & YUI3 using Shifter:
Rebuild AUI components:
If run at the root level, it will build all AUI components.
If run within a component folder (ie.
cd src/aui-datatable), it will only build that specific component.
Watch for changes and rebuild automatically:
The basic structure of the project is given in the following way:
bower_components/Contains all dependencies fetched via Bower. However, this directory is unnecessary for versioning, so it is ignored (.gitignore).
build/Contains AlloyUI and YUI generated files, once build task has been run. However, this directory is unnecessary for versioning, so it is ignored (.gitignore).
demos/Contains basic examples of the AlloyUI modules.
src/Contains the source code of the AlloyUI modules.
tasks/Contains the source code of the Gulp tasks.
