A microkernel for modular javascript, a toolchain for modern front-end, a micro-framework for growable WebApp.

OzJS Project

OzJS is NOT yet another script loader, but a microkernel that provides sorely-missing module mechanism at runtime (that means it mainly works at language-level, not file-level. Use Ozma.js to process files statically at build time based on the same mechanism) for large/complex javascript program, compatible with the de facto standards (AMD, NodeJS/CommonJS and traditional module pattern).

Even better, it was implemented earlier than the well-known RequireJS, so there are differences between similar APIs in philosophy and approach, which bring more value.

The API and code of oz.js are minimalist and stable. It won’t add new features that aren’t truly needed (It’s absolutely bad practice to meet new requirements through new configuration options or new plugins for a module mechanism provider!).

The OzJS Project now focuses on providing bundles of powerful and yet micro-framework friendly AMD modules.

  • Source code
  • OzJS app template

OzmaJS

  • Intelligent autobuild tool for OzJS
  • Unique ability to support transparent dynamic dependence
  • Source code

Micro-framework

It is time to stop using All-in-One JavaScript library or framework which bundle all functionalities and solutions within a single global namespace.

OzJS Project provides plenty of tiny, mutually independent, single purpose modules to help you build(mix and match) your own MVC(or suchlike) framework.

Mo

  • A collection of OzJS core modules that form a library called “Mo”
  • Modules overview
    • mo/lang
      • ES5/6 shim and minimum utilities for language enhancement
    • mo/domready
      • Non-plugin implementation of cross-browser DOM ready event
      • Based on OzJS’s built-in module – ‘finish’
    • mo/browsers
      • Standalone jQuery.browsers supports skin browsers popular in China
    • mo/template
      • A lightweight and enhanced micro-template implementation, and minimum utilities
    • mo/network
      • Standalone jQuery.ajax API and enhanced getJSON, and so on
    • mo/easing
      • An easing library supports jquery.js, standalone module and CSS timing functions
    • mo/mainloop
      • Implement and manage single loop for WebApp life cycle
      • Provide tweening API for both property animation and frame animation(canvas or css)
    • mo/key
      • Wrapping API for keyboard events
      • Support key sequence, multiple key press,
    • mo/console
      • Debulg tool
  • Source code

EventMaster

  • A simple, compact and consistent implementation of a variant of CommonJS’s Promises and Events
  • Source code

NervJS

  • A tiny, pure, event-based model wrapper for the MVC or MDV (Model-driven Views) pattern.
  • Source code

DollarJS

  • A jQuery-compatible and non-All-in-One library which is more “Zepto” than Zepto.js
  • Source code
