The App Framework library also includes an optional query selector library that takes advantage of the latest built-in HTML5 and CSS3 features of browsers and supports valid W3C CSS selectors.
App Framework 2.1 offers a new website and documentation including examples of all of the available APIs. The new portal allows developers to see what the UI elements can look like through an interactive view with a simulated phone skin for the UI Components of App Framework. Developers can look at the common elements (buttons, headers, footers, lists, etc.), see the UI element code and API, edit and sample a code snippet for it on the fly, then cut/paste the code snippet providing the ability to quickly implement it in an app.
