Senna.js Save Abandoned

:seedling: A blazing-fast Single Page Application engine

Project README

:warning: In the future, the senna npm package will be deprecated and this repo archived (ie. switched to read-only mode). Development continues in the liferay/liferay-portal repo (more specifically, inside the frontend-js-spa-web module), but not as an independent project, in order to better integrate with and serve the needs of Liferay DXP. At the time of writing, the last official release was v2.7.9, from the 2.x series on the master branch, and it is still used by a number of pre-EOL versions of Liferay DXP, such as 7.0.x, 7.1.x, 7.2.x, and 7.3.x. Any maintenance releases required to the v2.x series of the npm package in the future will be made from the liferay-frontend-projects monorepo.


Build Status Dependencies Status DevDependencies Status

Senna.js is a blazing-fast single page application engine that provides several low-level APIs that allows you to build modern web-based applications with only ~15 KB of JavaScript without any dependency.

Support and Project status

Senna.js is widely used and well maintained internally at Liferay but does not currently have staffing to support the open source release. As such this project is mostly internal and support is minimal. For certain issues, like build integration we are in an especially bad position to offer support.

To get assistance you can use any of the following forums

  1. Look through the documentation.
  2. File an issue on GitHub

We will try our best, but keep in mind that given our support staffing, we may not be able to help.
