This seems like a case of caring way too much about something that's hardly very different. JSX versus tagged template strings can be incredibly similar to one another.
The examples in this article are using vanilla template strings to author raw html, but that only misses a couple of nicities JSX has. There are tagged template string libraries like htm that do include some of the few nicities JSX has, but which are actually compatible with the official language.

Our sweet little React wannabe actively publicizes itself as an alternative to React, no wonder it has perfect support for JSX as well. But if you want, you can also go the lit way.

[AskJS] What is an issue you struggle with your current tech stack?
For your own side project, try rigging something together with pure ESM, I tried it and it was a pretty fun exercise. HTM/Lit for building components. Skypack for bundling modules using a CDN. You can even bundle multiple dependencies on a CDN using ReverseHTTP. Native imports maps are also great, but not fully supported yet.

Frameworks definitely help solve this problem in part. But you don't need to go that far just for something simple like this. For example you could use htm plus vhtml to get a no-build tools way to write declarative HTML markup that is translated into a plain HTML string. Or for just a few more kb, you can use htm + preact to get all of the power of React for about 13kb, again with no build tools or setup.
