    I’ve been working on the 0.6 release of mogwai, which is a library for building GUI views. This release is all about making the library domain agnostic, meaning it can be used to define views in any GUI domain (ie browser, native, gtk, wgpu game). I’m also trying to trim down the API and improve the RSX macro.

    Here's a link to Mogwai: - its Github readme also has other benchmark numbers (also from TodoMVC but with newer versions of Mogwai) that shows it faster than Preact and Mithril.
  • We'd love to hear your ideas/opinions: SSR in maple

    I solved the SSR problem in my library mogwai using conditional compilation to include an encoding of the DOM element when compiled for non-wasm targets, which you can see here). The extra field ServerNode allows me to provide an html_string function on non-wasm targets. On wasm targets the html_string function is backed by the DOM element's outerHtml method.
