NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

In the crowded space of JavaScript frameworks, we want to highlight Flight.js as a lightweight framework to build components. Flight gets by without much magic when adding behavior to DOM nodes. Its event-driven and component-based nature promotes writing decoupled code. This makes testing individual components comparatively easy. Care must be taken, however, when components need to interact with each other. There is little support for testing and a real danger to get into event hell. We do like that it uses functional mixins for behavior, like composition instead of inheritance.

In the crowded space of JavaScript frameworks, we want to highlight Flight.js as an alternative to consider.
