Third party view library


What methods/api becomes pointless once I use my own view layer library? I appreciate the modularity, although it doesn’t appear to compare to nx-framework that claims to follow express design.


Hi @janat08, I know this was discussed a little on Gitter but I’ll share my thoughts here:

The Tech Overview focuses so much on observables because (I think) that’s the best part of CanJS. Modeling data, working with APIs, binding to window.location… it’s all backed by the observable system.

I think the component model is nice, and as you’ve seen, we’re interested in extending it with more than just stache. Depending on what your view layer provides, maybe the component model would still be helpful to you (especially because can-components can be auto-mounted like custom elements in browsers that support them).


Yes, I was looking to try hyperHTML.
