For this first release of Magento 2.0, here is a summary of some important features of the release.

Technology Improvements in Magento 2.0

 

  • CSS3, and CSS preprocessing. The reference themes use CSS3. Magento 2 uses the LESS CSS pre-processor, or you can add support for Sass and Compass. See Cascading style sheets, and CSS pre-processor.
  • jQuery. Magento 2 uses jQuery as the primary JavaScript library. Magento ships with an extensible set of jQuery widgets. See Magento JQuery widgets.
  • RequireJS. The RequireJS library helps load JS resources on demand to improve page load times. It’s also intended to encourage modular design of frontend components. See JavaScript resources.
  • PSR Compliance. PSR compliance standardizes the use of PHP to allow different sets of code libraries to work together. See PHP coding standard.
  • Testing framework. Magento 2 includes a pre-packaged series of test scripts, including tests for integration, units, static environments, functional areas, and performance criteria. See Magento Test Framework, and the JavaScript unit tests.
