Welcome to .NinJa (Dot NinJa)

.NinJa (formerly AwesomeScript) stands for .NET Intellisense driven JavaScript. It is a extensive JavaScript framework borrowing heavily from .NET application development with full Intellisense support in Visual Studio 2010. The goal of .NinJA is to provide a means of making dynamic changes to HTML documents without the use of string concatenation, provide a event model similar to the .NET framework, provide full Intellisense support to allow developers to figure out what to use without constantly looking for documentation, and to provide an environment that .NET developers are used while being fast, efficient, and comply with modern browser standards.

.NinJa started nearly 3 years ago as "AwesomeScript". The name change was mostly in favor of a name that was a partial acronym that better reflected the goals of the framework. The framework has been developed with the end user, that is the developer, in mind. Making use of it seem as intuitive as possible. .NinJa does not follow the CSS query pattern of other frameworks, nor does it follow the named parameters. Instead, the Intellisense provides descriptions of each parameter for each function call. It also follows the builder-pattern principle where most function calls can be chained together one after another rather than re-referencing the same object in a variable.
