PrimeFaces Extensions

Additional Faces components for PrimeFaces


PrimeFaces Extensions project is a community driven open source project which has an aim to be a lightweight and fast Faces component and utility library in addition to PrimeFaces. We are big fans of PrimeFaces and this project is an extended component set with useful components missing in other Faces libraries or with improved components which already exist somewhere but don't work there smoothly. It only uses standards and is highly compatible with existing Faces frameworks.

PrimeFaces Extensions is an open source project licensed under MIT.
