The Aries JavaScript Ecosystem

The Aries JavaScript ecosystem includes various components that are spread across multiple repositories. In this section we'll go over what these components are and how the relate to one another.


Currently, Aries JavaScript is composed out of three separate repositories:

  1. Aries Framework JavaScript
  2. Aries Framework JavaScript Extensions
  3. Aries Mobile Agent React Native (Bifold)
