Having built frameworks and engineered solutions across a variety of front-end platforms for over 10 years, the Aurelia Core Team has joined together to inject our combined experience into the Aurelia Framework, a tool we know will not only help you solve the real problems in your application development, but make you happy while you do it.
Do you believe Angular 2.0 is deviating from standards ? Does Aurelia aim to be standards compliant and independent?
I come from angular, why should I use aurelia and not angular 2? My advantage is that I already know angular and that there is huge community. Thanks.
Does Aurelia provide out-of-box support for building Isomorphic/Universal apps? What is Aurelia team's opinion on isomorphic apps in general?
I'm interested in learning about your experiences while writing Aurelia in ES6. What were some of the major limitations/issues and what could have been done to solve that?
I recently tried React but was frustrated by the setup part so how easy it is for beginners to get started with Aurelia?
Aurelia is a MV* framework. What do you guys think about uni-directional data flow ( Flux, redux etc.)?
What can you tell us about Aurelia Interface? Roadmap? Pricing tiers?
Is there any major web site built with aurelia?
Novice here.. How does Aurelia stack up against Angular and React? In other words, why should one use Aurelia to build apps instead of something like React?
Thanks in advance.
I'm learning EmberJS, and I like it, so my question is: what would be the reason I could switch to Aurelia instead of a framework like the one I mentioned before?. By the way, I worked with Durandal and I enjoyed using it with KnockoutJS. Greetings
I have used Aurelia and love it.
But my management voices worries that Aurelia might be "some guy writing code in his garage" (and hence is not a long term framework to bet on).
I know you have many volunteers helping make it great, but how many paid developers do you have working on Aurelia?
Thanks for doing this Q&A session.
My question is : What was the initial motivation behind creating Aurelia?
Nice to see you here. Is there any way to compile/babelize the whole source code of Aurelia core and its extensions and all modules by developers into just one file from server?
I can see that Aurelia supports Web Components. I would like to know Rob's opinion on web components in general and how Aurelia utilises this technology.
I've been following Aurelia for almost a year, and have been really impressed with the progress made since it was first announced. What's the best way for your average web developer to help out the Aurelia community? Are there needs in terms of tutorials? Documentation? Evangelization? I want to do my part to make sure web developers know that Angular and React aren't the only major players out there.
There are multiple frameworks already there and coming in. So why Aurelia?
Does Aurelia have support for building native mobile apps like react-native?
I like the frameworks with the philosophy of "convention over configuration". What is Aurelia's philosophy?
I just found out that Aurelia team members are working remotely. That's really commendable. How is that working out for you? Any experience worth sharing?
Can we use React.js as view with Aurelia? Would you recommend that?
What's the story for knockout.js with aurelia? Will there be an official way to plug in knockout views when migrating old code bases to enable a smooth transition for durandal apps?
Hope you don't mind for a second (and a third, while I'm here :P) question :)
Being so popular, one of the big plus of Angular is the great availability of documentations in various forms -- among that, books. What about Aurelia? Is there any project for a (or more then one) book? It seems I didn't find anything, even from publishers which usually supports "Beta" ebooks publishing (i.e. partial releases of a reduced set of chapters).
Also, it seems Angular 2 supports RxJS for functional programming; it's even included in their official quickstart application. What about Aurelia? By reading other replies it shouldn't be that hard to plug it in; am I wrong?
How difficult/easy is it to port my existing Angular application to Aurelia?
First of all - congrat guys! Gitter is great, but it's bad if you need to search to find something that maybe someone else already asked... So, is there any chance that you open some kind of thread based forum?
Andre Staltz, creator of cycle.js says React and Redux is inferior paradigm, do you also think so? Do you think his points are valid?
Just following this AMA has given many great reasons to try Aurelia. Whats a good starting point to learn it?
What were the major challenges that you faced while getting everything to work with Babel 6?
During the development of Aurelia there have been some fairly show-stopping bugs at most release cycles - will you be adopting a more conservative development strategy after release and do you have/what are your concrete plans to improve the testing strategies?
How can I convince my CTO or a colleague to use Aurelia? What is your marketing plan to become more and more famous and attractive? Thanks!
I'm in the process of a building my first aurelia app, which I initially built in Polymer. Although I found the aurelia learning curve a bit steeper, I'm now well on my way. We are already using react.js in our organisation. So, my question is specifically around aurelia vs react performance. Have you guys done any benchmarking against competing frameworks/libraries?
Why Aurelia when there's already Durandal? Couldn't you've built a new version of Durandal with ECMA 6?
I know it doesn't affect us (users of Aurelia framework), but internally what are the main reasons why you have chosen Babel vs TypeScript? From today's perspective (Babel 6 problems) - do you think it was a wise decision? Today - switch to TypeScript is not an option?
Been following Aurelia with interest since I first heard of it. Some questions already about putting strong case in front of management. Currently working on proof of concept app using Angular and some D3.js charts. Any Aurelia based examples with charts etc.?
It seems that observables will be a part of ES7. Any thoughts on how Aurelia might leverage them in future features ?
Will aurelia-validation dependencies continue to get updated, or will we end up with forks? It would be a nightmare for us, if our app have to include different aurelia versions. We don't want our bundle size to grow even larger.
Is this something should (or eventually will) work?
Or do most JQuery input plugins interfere with he DOM too much to be able to do a value.bind?
Some time ago I recall there were some issues with Babel when v6 was released. Can we reliably use the newer versions of Babel with Aurelua today ?
When will you reveal your "Project X"? Is Aurelia Interface part of it?
Just out of curiosity - Is the commercial version of Aurelia available yet? What are the extra features?
Hello. I'm constantly following Aurelia development and its journey. I noticed that some issues with jspm in particular happened recently. Can you provide some more details about it, and how will this influence future development?
You already compared Aurelia with Polymer in the past, however can you elaborate in how far it might make sense (or not) to combine these two? e.g. polymer has a great UI library, that was actually our reason to use it (i know about AI :) )
What is the recommended way to observe array mutations? Observatory.getArrayObserver, BindingEngine.collectionObserver, other?
