All new development is happening in Strut2
Strut2 is currently private until we further solidify our
"open source dividened program."
Open Source Divdened is the idea that contributors to an open source project will earn revenue based on the overall usage of their contribution, relative to other contributors, in paid products.
In Strut's case specifically, we're launching a subscription service based on Strut and would like to pay our open source contributors.
Obviously there is a lot to figure out here, such as how "valuable" a contribution is and how does the "value" get dispersed as other developers make bugfixes and alterations to the original contribution. Given that, Strut2 is private until we figure out these details. Contact me if you'd like to know more.

To build your own version of Strut you'll need Grunt v0.4.0 or later.
- Install the latest Grunt:
npm install -g grunt-cli
- Clone Strut:
git clone git://github.com/tantaman/Strut.git
- Install Strut's development dependencies:
- Run Strut:
grunt server(the server runs at localhost:9000)
To make a production build of Strut run
The resulting build will be located in
v0.5.3 - Positioning and transformations of components in edit mode now exactly match the positioning and transformations of components in the final presentation.
Strut is composed of several bundles which provide distinct features to
Strut. The set of bundles that compose
Strut are defined in https://github.com/tantaman/Strut/blob/master/app/scripts/features.js
This design allows features to be added and removed from
Strut just by adding or removing bundles from the list
in features.js. E.g., if you wanted a build of Strut without
RemoteStorage you can just remove
RemoteStorage bundle from features.js. If you didn't want any slide components for some reason then you can remove
strut/slide_components/main from features.js.
Bundles contribute functionality to
Strut by registering that functionality with the
You can take a look at the
RemoteStorage bundle for an example: https://github.com/tantaman/Strut/blob/master/app/bundles/common/tantaman.web.remote_storage/main.js
If a service is missing
Strut continues to run without the functionality provided by that service.
New development that isn't essential to the core of Strut should follow this pattern in order to keep the code
modular and allow the removal of features that don't pan out or can only exist in specific environments. For example,
RemoteStorage can't be loaded if
Strut is being served from a
ServiceRegistry also allows for runtime modularity. I.e., services can be added and removed at runtime and
will update to reflect the current set of features & services that are isntalled. Try to keep in mind the
fact that services won't necessarily be present or if they are present they might go away. This
approach allows the user to add and remove plugins from 3rd parties at runtime.
