Building Apps with Riot

Book Description

This book is for mid level JavaScript developers wanting to learn Riot, or those who are just curious as to what Riot can offer in the sea of JavaScript frameworks. This book provides an outlook on developing websites, web applications, and web components with the Riot framework. Throughout the course of this book you will learn all of the essential aspects of Riot necessary to start hacking away. You don’t need any prior experience with the Riot framework to follow along in this book, but we do assume you are a mid level JavaScript developer who is well acquainted with popular build tools, industry standards, and typical frontend workflows. The code samples provided in this book make use of conventions from ES6, otherwise known as ECMAScript 6 or “Harmony." Many code samples from this book are pulled from our example dashboard application, which can be found here: https://github.com/backstopmedia/riot-book-example The dashboard application should not be taken as a boilerplate or format for structuring Riot applications, but it can serve as an informative reference.
