Discontinuing Weyland

Posted by Rob Eisenberg on .

Today, there are mature, extensible build systems for JavaScript applications. Back when Weyland was created it was unclear whether the existing systems could handle the unique build requirements of a Durandal app. As time has passed, the selection of available libraries has enlarged and their capabilities have significantly expanded. Consequently, we've decided to discontinue Weyland. Instead, we've added docs to the Durandal web site that guide you in using broader, community-adopted tools to accomplish the same ends. Currently, we've got docs for using Grunt, Gulp and Mimosa.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but we believe that, long-term, it's better to embrace community initiatives and act as a better citizen in the broader JavaScript ecosystem.
