riot v4.13.3 releases: Simple and elegant component-based UI library

2 min read


Riot brings custom components to all modern browsers. It is designed to offer you everything you wished native the web components API looked like.

Performant and predictable

  • Absolutely the smallest possible amount of DOM updates and reflows.
  • Fast expressions bindings instead of virtual DOM memory performance issues and drawbacks.
  • One way data flow: updates and unmounts are propagated downwards from parent to children.
  • No “magic” or “smart” reactive properties or hooks
  • Expressions are pre-compiled and cached for high performance.
  • Lifecycle methods for more control.

Close to standards

  • No proprietary event system.
  • Future proof thanks to the javascript module syntax.
  • The rendered DOM can be freely manipulated with other tools.
  • No extra HTML root elements, data- attributes or fancy custom attributes.
  • No new syntax to learn.
  • Plays well with any frontend framework.

Use your dearest language and tools

Powerful and modular ecosystem
