It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.
Flux is a tool in the Javascript UI Libraries category of a tech stack.
Flux is an open source tool with 17.2K GitHub stars and 3.6K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Flux's open source repository on GitHub
