What is Riot?

Riot brings custom tags to all browsers. Think React + Polymer but with enjoyable syntax and a small learning curve.

What is Essential React?

A minimal skeleton for building testable React apps using ES6.

What is Flux?

Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.
