Chapter 5. Designing your site with them... > Reaping the benefits of Alloy UI

5.3. Reaping the benefits of Alloy UI

Alloy UI is a user interface web application framework. In other words, it’s a set of prebuilt components that you can use to build user interfaces in web applications. Underlying Alloy UI is the Yahoo! User Interface library (YUI), which is a well-known JavaScript library developed by Yahoo!, Inc. Alloy UI solves common problems faced by developers across the spectrum of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and it does so by combining the best of existing solutions under one consistent API that is easy to use.

You can use Alloy UI’s components instead of hacking together your own markup, figuring out how to style it properly with CSS, and then coding up your own dynamic behavior with JavaScript. Alloy UI gives all of that to you.
