why alloy?

A lot of people ask, why they should invest their time on AlloyUI? Or why not just use jQuery with their gigantic ecosystem of plugins?

The thing is, DOM manipulation is just the tip of the iceberg when you are talking about modern and highly scalable applications. You'll probably need another library for templating (like Mustache/Handlebars), another for modular loading (like RequireJS/HeadJS), another for MVC structuring (like Backbone/Ember), another for UI components (like jQueryUI/ExtJS) and so on.

Well, AlloyUI comes with all of those things together. So there's no mess between different libraries, just a uniform API that makes your life easier. It's mantained by highly qualified engineers of Liferay, it's built on top of YUI3 (an awesome project made by Yahoo!) and uses Bootstrap (another cool project made by Twitter).
