FreeKernelJS aims to provide developers with a set of tools to produce a Web application structured from a Template, and to use common tasks in development such as: testing the application, generate documentation, produce a distribution version, and more.
To accelerate the production of the applications FreeKernelJS uses a Generator, which also makes the entire process simple and easy to use.
FreeKernelJS Generator creates for you a work environment - the Workspace, a separate Web project for each application, and enables you to develop custom Templates and Themes, then - import them into FreeKernelJS to be operated by its Generator.
FreeKernelJS is based on these technologies:
Supported platforms: Windows, iOS, Linux.
Supported Browsers: designed to support the current versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 10+.
- You are looking to learn the basics.
- You need a tool to kick start your Web project.
- You want to test standard technologies and learn how to use them.
- You want to generate a skeleton app that can be extended and used in large projects.
- You want to produce quickly several different apps, build with different UI packages/libraries.
- You need a complete modular environment, where you can develop your applications.
- Concept and Terminology: understand the main concept behind FreeKernelJS and learn about its terminology.
- Installation: first, you will need to install the environment with only 4 easy steps!
- Generate and Manage New Projects: then you can learn how to generate a new Project, how to configure and manage it.
FreeKernelJS offers a collection of Templates from which you can choose.
Each Template contains different features and UI libraries, and can be used to generate an App.
A list of available Templates is specified on this page: Templates.
In addition, you can enlarge your collection of Templates by Creating a Custom Template yourself.
Each App that FreeKernelJS generates can use a single Theme.
You can use the default Theme that comes built-in with the Template you choose, or create your own custom Theme and use it in your application.
To learn how to do that read Creating a Custom Theme.
FreeKernelJS comes with a set of tasks, powered by Grunt, which can be used during development to perform routine operations such as: unit testing, distribution, Sass compilation, etc.
A list of available tasks and instructions on how to use them can be found on this page: Use Grunt Tasks in Development
You are welcome to contribute to this project by adding custom Templates or Themes that can be used by FreeKernelJS. For more details read:
