    Given the above folder structure and requirements, what are your suggestions? I am looking into go-app to make a PWA, with the intention of saving myself time when creating ports into mobile / desktop / whatever. It seems alive and nice, I just hope that dealing with CSS is not too painful.

    Ty! Working with go-app has been very nice - I've already used React at work for 3 years or so and the concepts map really well (https://go-app.dev/ also has pretty good docs). The biggest reason I like to use it though is that its just really maintainable; I often noticed abandoning React FLOSS projects simply because the maintenance overhead was too high, and go-app fixes that. It doesn't make any assumptions about the programs logic (see https://pkg.go.dev/github.com/pojntfx/[email protected]/pkg/crypt - there is not a single dependency on go-app in the business logic) which is nice too (nothing like useEffect etc. from React) :)
  • What frontend libraries do exist in Go?

    I like what you did there in terms of simplicity and mapping of HTML tags compared to go-app.dev (https://go-app.dev/) which looks just awful.

    It seems that Go-App is much more mature than this project.

    Awesome looking project. I like how simple it seems to feel. As someone who is far less interested in writing web frontend, I have been keeping my eye out for projects that keep me from having to write JavaScript and let me express more of the logic in the Go backend. I noticed that you said the project took inspiration from gomponents. However that other project looks like it uses explicitly defined html methods instead of string literals (Div() as opposed to "div"). What are your thoughts on not having that compile time safety against mistyping a lot of things? I've seen other SPA projects also define out all the declarative tags. The Page object takes a specific zerolog Logger. Any reason not to accept an interface so projects can pass their own logger? Or is zerolog heavily relied upon internally? The one other project that I've had a quick play with is https://go-app.dev It is focused more on being PWA with the webassembly approach and let's you write Go logic in the client. But it also uses a declarative style and has explicit type safe tags. Any thoughts on this project compared with yours? Obviously yours is much lighter weight. Last question is, do you have an example that includes navigation? I was following your "one page one user" statement and curious what it looks like to design multiple views (pages?) with navigation.

What are some alternatives?
