⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️

This repository is no longer maintained.
The v2.2.1 release will be the last one and no more updates will be done on Highway from now on.

Thanks to all the contributors, maintainers and to the community that motivated us to make Highway one of the best transition manager so far. Highway and its Slack will remain available. As long as the community keeps enjoying the library in its current state, there is no reasons for us to archive the repository.

⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️


Highway is a lightweight (2.5ko compressed & gzipped), robust, modern and flexible library that will let us create AJAX navigations with beautiful transitions on our websites. It's been a while we were trying to build this kind of library to fits our needs at Dogstudio and we now finally released it!
