What is Flight?

Flight is distinct from existing frameworks in that it doesn't prescribe or provide any particular approach to rendering or providing data to a web application. It's agnostic to how requests are routed, which templating language you use or even if you render your HTML on the client or the server. While some web frameworks encourage developers to arrange their code around a prescribed model layer, Flight is organized around the existing DOM model with functionality mapped directly to DOM nodes.
Flight is a tool in the Javascript UI Libraries category of a tech stack.
Flight is an open source tool with 6.6K GitHub stars and 566 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Flight's open source repository on GitHub
