Road to 2.0
master branch has new, in-progress version of w2ui. You might want to consider 1.5 branch that is stable and supports older browsers. Here are the goals for the new version of w2ui.
The library implements following UI controls:
- w2layout - a Layout component - demo
- w2grid - an advanced Grid component - demo
- w2toolbar - a Toolbar component - demo
- w2sidebar - a Tree/Sidebar component - demo
- w2tabs - Tabs - demo
- w2form - Forms - demo
- w2fields - various Fields - demo
- w2popup - a Popup component - demo
- w2utils - various utilities - demo
The complete library is under 100Kb (minified & gzipped).
Current stable version is 1.5 Current development version is 2.0
You can download latest stable version here: http://w2ui.com. If you want to use dev version, see
dist/ folder in the master branch.
To start using the library you need to include into your page:
- w2ui.js (or w2ui.min.js)
- w2ui.css (or w2ui.min.css)
All the controls and their css classes are defined inside of these two files. There is no image dependencies, some images are embedded into CSS file, as well as font icons.
There is no requirement for a server side language. Node, Java, PHP, ASP, Perl or .NET all will work, as long as you can return JSON format from the server (or write a converter into JSON format on the client). Some server side example implementations can be found here.
