Purpose and Scope

Aikau is a widget composition library which makes it easy to build applications on top of Alfresco's Surf framework.





Aikau is shipped as part of Alfresco Share. It can also be obtained from:


Governance Model

Most of the roadmap of Aikau is determined by the needs of Alfresco Share, Alfresco Records Management, and other Alfresco products that use the library. However, the Aikau team takes a lot of contributions and suggests from the open source community. Open source contributions are considered for inclusion based on their quality, relevance to the current roadmap, and our quality assurance backlog.



Aikau is made available under the terms of the LGPLv3.


Source Code
