For those curious, this is the new site design, with both light and dark modes. Excuse the large size, caps were taken on my 4k media center set to 10 foot friendly 1REM == 32px.

I'll fix every flaw, I'll break every law, I'll tear up the rulebook if that's what it takes. You will see, I will crush this cold machine.

Regarding compiled languages creating monolithic files, would creating a simple menu system, that requests self contained entities, overcome the problem?

For the morbidly curious, here's the current alpha about ready to go beta once I finish unit testing. It's a wee bit different a beasty from anything prior, though it partly returns to the roots of 1.x since we can now tell IE to suck it.

Again, not even fully unit tested yet, much less well documented.

If a letter is on the minor revision, it's an alpha. The beta will be .beta followed by the beta number, same for rc.

So for example Release Candidate 1 will be elementals.5.0.0.RC1.js

Generally I don't share my alpha's public, but it feels like I'm standing in mud on unit testing and documenting.

Thanks for the update, super glad you decided to share your alpha release with us.

However I keep getting 403 forbidden when trying to access the link.

Can you take a look please, obviously after client work :)

Oh, I'm also going to be adding a lot more error reporting at the console level to things in terms of type checking. You pass a string where an object should be expected, it should bitch about it with a console.error(), and a console.trace() to make the error report USEFUL.

Thus the internal use LOG object.  Still trying to decide if I should expose that or not given that the underscore object of the original elementals has gone the way of the dodo in favor of hooking existing elements.

Maybe make the internal "log" be Console.__elementals?

I think exposing it is an excellent idea.
When creating modules/component’s it will be an added benefit to be able to log out some information/errors.
