    xui

    A lightweight, dead simple, micro-tiny, super modular JavaScript framework for building mobile web applications. It's true: the minified code is super tiny. You can find more information, downloads and documentation on the http://xuijs.com.

    If you want to build your own custom xui or help contribute: please read on! The best documentation is in the source and the tests.

    Building xui

    To get the full source you need Git:

    $ git clone git://github.com/xui/xui.git
    $ cd xui
    $ git submodule init
    $ git submodule update
    

    To build xui, you will need Ruby, and if minifying, Java as well:

    $ ./build                 # Generates lib/xui.js
    $ ./build profile=bb      # Builds xui for BlackBerry 4/5 browsers (uses Sizzle selector engine)
    $ ./build profile=ie      # Builds xui for Internet Explorer
    $ ./build --minify        # Builds xui and minifies (Java required)
    $ ./build --cat=path/f.js # Builds xui and appends the contents of f.js to the built files under lib/
    

    Generating Documentation

    The documentation is generated from the inline comments in the source-code. joDoc uses the comments to generate a set of HTML files.

    To generate the documentation, you will need Ruby, Perl, and Git:

    ./build --generate-docs
