Webix is a JavaScript and HTML5 for developing data-rich mobile and desktop web apps with highly responsive user interfaces. The library is distributed under both open-source GNU GPLv3 and Commercial licenses.

Webix was released on July, 2013. At that day it was one of the first libraries that allows building web apps both for desktop and mobile devices. Initially Webix could be integrated with such popular frameworks as jQuery and Backbone.js and had a simple integration with the server side.

Later, Webix was updated to the version 1.1 that allowed using REST API and XSS safe templates for all Webix components.

Version 1.2 brought integration with AngularJS and enhancements in Backbone.js integration. The next version 1.3 has added 6 new skins and a new UI element “HTML5 video”, Carousel with new functionality and Charts with a logarithmic scale.[1]

Starting with Webix version 1.4, all Webix components can use WebSocket protocol and indexedDB for data loading and saving.[2] With the release of 1.5, mobile web apps developed with Webix look and perform even better on touch devices. It happens thanks to adding a new touch skin with a flat design and customizing such components as Tabbar, Charts, Accordion, Unitlist and Slider specially for mobile apps.

Webix 1.6 brings full support for Windows 8 touch devices and for drag-and-drop operations on all kinds of touch devices, while version 1.7 has added a new appealing default skin and support for multiselect on touch devices.

Webix 1.8 includes a few techniques for building responsive apps. The next library version has added hotkeys for controls, extended the Menu functionality and presented some UI improvements.
