Sometimes .JS platforms can be too complicated. Can.JS has been designed for the developer looking to get an application completed in a way that’s quick and not complex. To that end, Can.JS has a very flexible framework that operates quickly and powerfully. In addition, it has a small footprint and features of a modern gloss, such as custom tags and bindings that work two ways. That being said, more advanced developers aren’t terribly keen on it because of its simplicity. Can.JS is a great program for simple, speedy creation. Not every application has to be of the highest technically complex grade available to the market.
