What is it?

  • RAIN is a highly scalable frontend platform that orchestrates distributed rendering of loosely coupled components.
  • By using standard web technologies (HTML 5, CSS 3) RAIN enables developers to create a stunning user experience on modern browsers and next generation devices (tablets, smart phones).
  • Thus RAIN enables developers to focus on their core competence by providing simple feature reusage and tooling.
