Introduction

This is the "human" repository for cdnjs, where all JSON package files that control the libraries hosted on cdnjs are stored. For all assets hosted on cdnjs, please see the robot-only cdnjs/cdnjs repository.

cdnjs is a free and open source project to organize and provide popular front-end web development resources to developers via a fast CDN infrastructure, powered by Cloudflare, without usage limitations and fees. We want to help individual library/framework developers distribute their projects, and web developers supercharge their websites! With our great free CDN service, developers can focus on their projects and website development. Developers no longer have to spend time worrying about how to set-up a CDN for projects or website assets. We hope to make web development easier, as well as your websites and the WWW faster and safer.

Currently, cdnjs is the #1 free and open source CDN built to make life easier for developers and is rated No. 2 (ref) overall in web front-end CDN services and has great performance. We fully support https, SPDY, http/2.0, and SRI. These will boost and secure your website with zero configuration. (Note: You'll still need to take care of server-side and application layer security issues. We make it better, but we can't help you too much if you implement a bad practice.)

Latest version URL support

Please note that cdnjs does not provide a latest version URL for a library, due to the following considerations:

  1. Your website might break if there are any compatibility issues or bugs coming from upstream. It's not a good idea to use it in the production environment. Both jQuery CDN and Google CDN don't provide this feature.
  2. The latest URL feature also has cache and performance issues. This conflicts with what we are trying to do - make your website load as fast as possible.
  3. Security issues have become more and more important nowadays. For example, Great Cannon attacked GitHub via malicious JavaScript (ref1, ref2) during April 2015. One of the techniques to prevent this kind of attack is Subresource Integrity (SRI). We have been supporting this feature for a long time. The latest URL feature, however, totally conflicts with the SRI technique.
