    aurelia-framework

    Aurelia is a modern, front-end JavaScript framework for building browser, mobile, and desktop applications. It focuses on aligning closely with web platform specifications, using convention over configuration, and having minimal framework intrusion. Basically, we want you to just write your code without the framework getting in your way. :wink:

    This library is part of the Aurelia platform. It contains the aurelia-framework library, which brings together all the required core aurelia libraries into a ready-to-go application-building platform.

    Aurelia applications are built by composing a series of simple components. By convention, components are made up of a vanilla JavaScript or Typescript class, with a corresponding HTML template.

    //app.js
    export class App {
      welcome = "Welcome to Aurelia";
    
      quests = [
        "To seek the holy grail",
        "To take the ring to Mordor",
        "To rescue princess Leia"
      ];
    }
    
    <!-- app.html -->
    <template>
      <form>
        <label for="name-field">What is your name?</label>
        <input id="name-field" value.bind="name & debounce:500">
    
        <label for="quest-field">What is your quest?</label>
        <select id="quest-field" value.bind="quest">
          <option></option>
          <option repeat.for="q of quests">${q}</option>
        </select>
      </form>
    
      <p if.bind="name">${welcome}, ${name}!</p>
      <p if.bind="quest">Now set forth ${quest.toLowerCase()}!</p>
    </template>
