THIS IS NOT OUR USUAL LOCATION! This month only, the meeting will be at Elemental Technologies.
We have three presentations on the agenda this month:
RactiveJS, presented by Marty Nelson
Ractive.js is a template-driven UI library. Unlike other tools that generate inert HTML, it transforms your templates into blueprints for apps that are interactive by default. Ractive was originally created at theguardian.com by Rich Harris to produce news applications. These apps are heavily interactive, combine HTML and SVG, and are developed under extreme deadline pressure. It has to work reliably across browsers, and perform well even on mobile devices.
Ractive is a library, not a framework. Where some tools force you to learn a new vocabulary and structure your app in a particular way, Ractive works for you, not the other way around – and it plays well with other libraries. In this talk, we'll go over the main features of Ractive.js, and also show possible integrations that highlight the varied approaches to working with Ractive.
Mystery bonus presentation
We may or may not be able to get to the final presentation. So for now it will remain a mysterious secret!
If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please Jesse Hallett .
