Description

CanJS is a MIT-licensed, client-side, JavaScript framework that makes building rich web applications easy. Use it because it’s:

There are many libraries out there and it can be difficult to pick the one that’s right for you. In our humble opinion, the technology in CanJS is simply the best.
It strikes a balance between:

  • Size
  • Ease of use
  • Safety
  • Speed
  • Flexibility

The following are the reasons to use CanJS.

On top of jQuery, CanJS is 8.5k. Here’s some other frameworks for comparison:

  • Backbone 8.97kb (with Underscore.js)
  • Angular 24kb
  • Knockout 13kb
  • Ember 37kb
  • Batman 15kb

Size is not everything. It really is what’s inside that counts. And that’s where we think CanJS really delivers a lot of bang for your buck.

This site highlights the most important features of CanJS. The library comes with thorough documentation and examples on the DoneJS documentation page. There are example apps for each library and several example for jQuery.

CanJS is also supported by Bitovi, formerly Jupiter Consulting. We are extremely active on the forums. And should the need arise, we provide support, training, and development.
