Statecharts are a great way to organize your web application and make it more robust and increase code reuse.
Stativus comes in three versions:

stativus.debug.js and it is more readable and you get the following
enterState are documented with 'ENTER: state_name'
exitState are documented with 'EXIT: state_name
- All events are documented with 'EVENT: state_name fired [event_name] with n argument(s)'
- Any time your application is configured in such a way that it will break, you will get a console or exception
- All Async starts and stops will be outputted to the console.
- Will warn you if you forgot to return true when using willEnterState()
