Book Description

Flight is a lightweight, component-based JavaScript application framework developed by Twitter for Twitter.com. It is an exciting alternative to the complexities of modern MVVM frameworks, offering a minimal API that allows you to write fast, reliable, scalable applications with a minimum of boilerplate code.

Getting Started with Twitter Flight offers the reader insight into why Flight was created and how to use it to build performant, powerful web apps from a unique perspective – that of someone who has had the opportunity to work directly with the team that created it. From a basic knowledge of JavaScript and jQuery, you will explore every aspect of Flight through practical examples and detailed explanations.

Learn what separates Flight from other frameworks, why Flight was created, and why you should use it in your next project. Discover the power of Flight’s component-based architecture and use mixins, an exciting alternative to class-based inheritance, to create templating systems and data storage layers.

Getting Started with Twitter Flight provides all you need to know to build everything from UI widgets to large-scale, data-driven applications.
