Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
My goodness this is so cool

Have a look: "> htmx - high power tools for html" https://htmx.org
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-16
I work on a dependency-free, build-less library called htmx:
It's more an extension of HTML than a JS library. It might be a good way to gently introduce more dynamic behavior without blowing out the complexity of your site.
Should I ditch using Django
reddit.com/r/startups | 2021-10-16
As an additional advice, I would check the Django subreddit and ask what are they doing for their front-end needs (e.g. check this one) -> you don't have to use JS for front-end (e.g. check htmx, unicorn, etc).
The Decline of Django
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-15
I think the case for server-side HTML rendering has never been stronger, and of all Django projects I work on, the ones I enjoy most are those that never got on the SPA bandwagon. From both a developer and user point of view I find them much faster and less painful. There are many cases where you really, really don't need the massive amount of extra complexity involved in designing APIs, adding JS frameworks etc.
When you need a bit of extra UI goodness, [htmx](https://htmx.org/) is a fantastic solution, and you can still use SPA-type approaches for things that need them.
You can also benefit from massively faster (and more reliable) functional testing when you are mostly standard HTML - see [django-functest](https://github.com/django-functest/django-functest/) for an example of this.
Has anyone written a small framework to support HTMX?

I recently started using htmx (https://htmx.org/) in combination with Django and have become a firm believer of sending HTML 'over the wire' instead of JSON structures that then get used client side.

Ask HN: What are some tools / libraries you built yourself?

I created intercooler.js in 2013 so I could do AJAX in HTML:
Last year I removed the jquery dependency and cleaned it up based on a lot of lessons that I learned, renaming it to hmtx:
Same idea: extends/complete HTML as a hypertext so you can build more advanced UI within the original hypermedia web model, and cleaner implementation.
Part of that cleanup involved me pulling out some functionality around events and a proto-scripting language (ic-action), and I enjoy programming languages, so I created a front end scripting language to fill that need:
It's based on HyperTalk and has a lot of domain specific features for lightweight front end scripting, kind of a jQuery or AlpineJS alternative.
Ask HN: I feel my career is at a dead end. Any advice on what could I do?
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-11
This is my experience, and your mileage may vary:
Multiple times in my coding career I have felt stalled and/or like I was regressing.
Early on, I worked on a programming language, gosu (https://gosu-lang.github.io/) which ended up not really going anywhere. Once the work on it was done, I returned to more mundane web programming for a while. A long while after that, and unexpectedly, I turned a jQuery function I was noodling on into intercooler.js (https://intercoolerjs.org/). After a year of that I returned to mundane web programming for quite a while. Unexpectedly, a year ago, the country shut down. I was at home and decided to see if I could remove the jQuery dependency in intercooler.js, and so created htmx (https://htmx.org/). When creating htmx and removing some attribute/functionality, I realized that a small programming language would be the ideal replacement, so I created hyperscript: https://hyperscript.org/. I had not expected to work on a programming language again, but now I am.
So my career has been some very exciting technical projects punctuating long stretches of pretty basic web development, where the most exciting thing is me wondering if I can figure out what the deuce is wrong with my CSS. My takeaway here, at least in my career, is that patience is a virtue, and the interesting stuff tends to come up at irregular intervals and in unexpected moments and ways.
HTML over-the-wire is the future of Web Development
dev.to | 2021-04-04
htmx is the successor to intercooler.js. It swaps parts of the page, not the whole page like Turbolinks. htmx allows you to access AJAX, CSS Transitions, WebSockets and Server Sent Events directly in HTML, using attributes, so you can build modern user interfaces with the simplicity and power of hypertext
