What is so special about AURELIA?

Highly Adaptable:

Aurelia has started to become the preferred framework by developers where it stands in competition with Angular JS. The perks with Aurelia are that it integrates with web components with no external dependencies except poly-fills. It leverages on technology of the future but works for today’s development on mobile, desktops and browser environments.

Today’s Framework

It is written with vanilla ES6 and ES7. Although it is transpiled and polyfiled to work for today’s Evergreen Browsers ( ). The code is highly module oriented and the libraries are very composed and simple.

This allows several fundamental advantages that use situations that may not be accommodated by other frameworks.

For instance:

  • One can use the entire framework to code and build applications

  • Individual libraries to develop websites

  • Libraries available on the server with Node.JS (Visit our Blog: 10 Most Gripping Node.Js Extensions For Developers

     to know more)

  • Use of set of building blocks to create customized framework.

Highly Compatible APIs

The Aurelia APIs are designed to be compatible with modern scripting languages like TypeScript, CoffeeScript and AtScript which are immensely being used by developers globally.

A core feature of Aurelia allows dynamic User Interface (UI) by composing models, view-models based on runtime data. So integration of Aurelia APIs results in convenient software application development.

We are Helios, IT Outsourcing Company in India. We have an exclusive Aurelia Framework team of developers on board who are wish to share their thoughts through this blog –

“Aurelia offers another angle as a modular framework since its introduction in JavaScript framework that enables customization and accommodation of the latest ECMAScript techJavaScript. As it is modularized and composed of small libraries, it is extremely convenient to build with. We as developers can use the entire framework to build application and use traditional libraries to build websites. It avails libraries on the server with Node.JS or even building of custom frameworks which is the added advantage. For the record, we have fun in the process of building an application with Aurelia. It is highly recommended”.
