Can Aurelia be used without any build tools?

Is there any way to use Aurelia with no build tools – no npm, no webpack, no compilation, etc? If so, is there documentation or examples of how to get started with that?

It’s quite hard (if not impossible), at least not for all features to work.

The first obvious block: both Aurelia 1 and 2 uses decorators heavily. JS decorator is not part of ECMAScript standard yet, so no native browser support. Transpiling is required for decorators to work.

Thank you for the update.

You could look into aurelia-script:
