- Fewer page errors. AMD implementations allow developers to define dependencies that must be loaded before the module can be implemented, so the module does not attempt to use external code that is not already available.
Instead of loading files one after the other, AMD can load them all separately, even if they are interdependent.
AMD offers some interoperability with CommonJS. It allows the use of look-alike export and require () interfaces in the code, although its own defined interface is more basic and preferred. Universal Module Definition (UMD) is a prototype version that uses these similarities to support both AMD and CommonJS.
The AMD specification is implemented through the Dojo Toolkit, RequireJS, and other libraries.
