I’ve been chipping away and contributing to the Aurelia project the last couple months.
On top of ES6, Rob has added the “Eisenberg Effect”,which is to say the framework is modular, extensible, testable, and favors convention over configuration. You’ll recognize many patterns if you’ve used Durandal or Caliburn Micro in the past.
Best of all, the APIs are crafted to make life easy for the developer instead of the framework authors.
Expect more Aurelia coverage in the future. Next up will be “Hello, World!” with Aurelia, ASP.NET 5, and Visual Studio 2015.
