BoltJS By Facebook: Fast, Powerful UI Framework In JavaScript!

Facebook's BoltJS is Fast, Robust and Powerful UI framework written entirely in JavaScript and runs in Browser. This means you won't need backend processing and everything runs in your browser. The framework will allow developers around the world develop UIs fast using HTML 5 and JavaScript.While it is the aim of the BoltJS project to support as many modern browsers as sensible, it is currently focused on supporting mobile WebKit browsers, with the intention of being the best possible development platform for mobile sites and HTML5 apps. Bolt is built on top of Javelin (#-Link-Snipped-#), from which it uses the event delegation and class declaration features, as well as various utility methods. This ensures that Bolt does not duplicate code already present in the Facebook codebase, helping it stay lightweight and reuse patterns familiar to Facebook developers.

    I am right now working on BoltJS. Woah man! The performance compared to the normal JavaScript is awesome. Some problems are, the performance gradually degrades in the lower versions of browser, like IE6 (Still people use it). Another problem as well as a good thing is it uses HTML5, so we can get all the advantages of it. But, many browsers are not supporting those features and getting crashed, when activated. Graceful degradation is not so good.
