Brew 1.0 has arrived!
Brew is an open source library of interface components for ASP.NET which utilizes jQuery and jQuery UI. If Brew looks familiar, that’s for good reason. Brew is a heavily refactored fork of the Juice UI project.
Lovely, so what’s it do?
And the result!
Check out the demo site here for some functional examples and code http://shellscape.org/brew.
What makes Brew different
Creating a project that’s just a copy of another would be silly. Brew stands out in a few ways from it’s cousin.
- Brew’s extenders and controls are simpler and more intuitive to use.
- Brew’s codebase is much smaller, making it easier to maintain and fix bugs faster.
- Brew is a spartan release, no extra fluff or unnecessary extras.
- Brew contains all of the as-yet unreleased bug fixes from the JuiceUI master repository.
Ready to give it a try?
At the moment Brew supports only Webforms-based website projects, but that’ll change in the coming weeks with full support of MVC4. Brew requires the .NET Framework v4.5 and unfortunately there are no plans to support older versions of the framework. Sorry Sharepoint users.
For bugs and unexpected problems using Brew, please file a new issue on Github.
