Willow has seen its first public release. They write:
We're happy to announce the general availability of Willow and it's related projects in the Web Stack ecosystem hosted at https://github.com/ba-st/. Willow is a Web Interaction Library that eases the burden of creating AJAX-based web applications. The project goals are:
Provide a Smalltalk protocol for the interactive behavior of web components
Reify the pieces of a web application to improve reuse
Offer a simple and polymorphic protocol for different front-end frameworks.
It's MIT licensed and built on top of the Seaside Web Framework providing a set of composable components and easier AJAX interaction. It's intented to work alongside the RenoirSt DSL to define the CSS of your application.
This is a multi-release announcement of the following related projects:
Willow v4.0.0 : Core features, components and commands
Willow-Bootstrap v4.0.0 : Bootstrap 3 integration, components and plugin
