The power of Lightning

Many of the principles used in LightningTM were inspired by Google Polymer, Angular and other modern frameworks. By not being limited to HTML, we could use and combine our favorite design patterns, and create our own take on the ultimate component-based framework for UX and TV app development.
 

  • High focus on efficient use of resources
  • Leverages WebGL and Canvas2D
  • Not using HTML DOM elements
  • Built with great performance in mind
