Aurelia Overview

Aurelia is an open source, JavaScript-based UI framework written from ECMAScript 2016. Aurelia excels on simplified conventions plus the ES6/ES7 support. This support is included to ensure compatibility with today’s browsers. You may think that it is just another framework but Aurelia was built to be the next generation of modern JavaScript.

Aurelia Has Multiple Key Features

It boasts multiple key features like:

  • It’s designed to be one of the simplest modern framework that frees you from abstractions and focus on your development.
  • Aurelia is highly extensible. It can be easily integrated with outside tools.
  • Aurelia is open sourced licensed under MIT.
  • Aurelia’s code is very modularized, it’s very clean and lets you develop an app without the framework getting in the way.

Unlike the Angular framework, because Aurelia is still new, known disadvantages are still few. Officially, Aurelia is a product of Durandal Inc. which has a smaller community and ecosystem compared to its competition but they are no doubt one of the most active and thriving community in today.

In the next article, we will go through the prerequisites that need to be done prior to creating our Aurelia app.
