Flight is a lightweight, component-based JavaScript framework from Twitter. Unlike other JavaScript frameworks which are based around the MVC pattern, Flight maps behavior directly to DOM nodes.

Flight is agnostic to how requests are routed or which templating library you decide to use. Flight enforces strict separation of concerns. Components in Flight do not engage each other directly.

They broadcast their actions as events and those components subscribed to those events can take actions based on them. To make use of Flight, you will need the ES5-shim and jQuery along with an AMD loader.

You can learn more about flight by checking out their full documentation and by checking out their simple email client demo.

Requirements: jQuery, ES5-shim, AMD Loader
