CanJS is a collection of client-side JavaScript architectural libraries.

Web Components

CanJSbs StacheElement allows you to create Web Components with observable properties and live-bound templates.

class Counter extends StacheElement {
	static view = `
		Count: <span>{{ this.count }}</span>
		<button on:click="this.increment()">+1</button>

	static props = {
		count: 0

	increment() {
customElements.define("my-counter", Counter);

Model layer

Components shouldnbt be concerned with how data is fetched, updated, or cached.

CanJS provides the right abstractions for your model code to be cleanly separated from your UI code. Learn moreb&

Promises in templates

CanJSbs stache templating language can directly read the state and values from Promises.

No need to write any extra code to determine whether a Promise is pending, resolved, or rejected. Learn moreb&

{{# if(this.promise.isPending) }}
{{/ if }}
{{# if(this.promise.isRejected) }}
  Error: {{ this.promise.reason }}
{{/ if }}
{{# if(this.promise.isResolved) }}
  Result: {{ this.promise.value }}
{{/ if }}

Real-time list updating

After data is created, updated, or destroyed, CanJS automatically updates your lists for you.

Filtering and sorting are preserved, so you donbt have to manually update your lists or fetch the same data again. Learn moreb&
