Welcome to the Hilo JavaScript Community

Hilo guides you though the development of a Windows Store app. The Hilo sample is a photo viewing app using HTML 5, CSS3 and JavaScript.

Hilo JavaScript documentation is now available on the Windows Dev Center

Work to date

Hilo JavaScript includes a reference implementation which is a work in progress which means we will continually improve the quality of the code and add new features each iteration. Similar to other patterns & practices projects, we are publishing our work in progress to get your feedback on the architecture, design, and code itself. We will publishes code and documentation drops approximately every 2 weeks.

The reference implementation currently demonstrates:
  • UX for Windows Store apps
  • Usage of Blend for styling and animations
  • Model-View-Presenter (MVP)
  • Unit testing JavaScript
