App Framework

The app framework provides simple MVC-like building blocks (models, model lists, views, view-controllers, and URL-based routing) for writing single-page JavaScript applications.

These building blocks can be used together or separately to create functionality ranging in complexity from simple non-interactive views to rich, multiple-view apps with URL-based routing, data binding, and full client-server synchronization.

If you’ve used DocumentCloud’s excellent Backbone.js framework, many of the classes and APIs provided by the app framework will look familiar to you. There are important differences, though, and the YUI app framework takes full advantage of YUI’s powerful component and event infrastructure under the hood.
