Mithril.js is an open-source JavaScript front-end framework for building single-page applications. The framework's goal is to provide the essentials for web development in a concise package with a small footprint compared to other frameworks like React or Angular. By focusing on modularity, hierarchy-free componentization, and reactive programming through the Virtual DOM, Mithril can efficiently update UI components without unnecessary re-rendering, leading to better performance. Its API emphasizes simplicity and readability while supporting features such as routing, XHR utilities for server communication, event handling, and contextual data binding. Mithril uses templating solutions that integrate into JavaScript code rather than requiring separate syntax (like JSX), aiming to enhance ease of use alongside predictable behavior across browsers as it supports IE11+.
