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.
Espresso.js – minimal React alternative – is now a decade old
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Oct 2022
The likely reason it never caught on, is that it has similar pitfalls as Backbone:
- manually attaching DOM elements to view controllers
- manually attaching child views
- models which have to be wired individually via .listenTo
- possibility of infinite loops if the events accidentally recurse
A better tiny alternative would be hyperapp or even Preact, that has a similar bundle size.
How hard is it to get a Mid FE position without any commercial framework experience?

If they're focused on performance and bundle size, it's your chance to try some minimalistic exotic stuff like hyperapp (https://github.com/jorgebucaran/hyperapp) or mithril (https://mithril.js.org/) Just for fun

With a bit of a deadline (due to a mixture of procrastination and confidence that Vue would work) I needed something quick. I have also used Hyperapp in the past but that looks like a dead project right now (although arguably it has all the functionality you need so why keep developing it?).
What I learned working with a senior engineer as a new grad

I’m glad it left that impression! My thoughts have clarified a bit since I read that post, and I think what I describe is more declarative, like React. But the best places to read about it (for web devs) are in Elm!
There is also this new thing I found that seems to really lean into the core of what being functional means here: https://github.com/jorgebucaran/hyperapp
After a while, you see that basically all systems can be modeled as event-driven, functional systems. It’s a flexible model, and fits beautiful into web dev where the semantics are very clear: the system is the web app and events are clicks, keyboard events, asynchronous calls...
Best JS library/bundler combo for ABSOLUTE MINIMUM production build size possible

Hyperapp is 1kb.

Personally, I try my best to avoid bringing in dependencies as much as possible, and try to limit my exposure to only dependencies with low/shallow transitive dependency counts. Unfortunately, this is pretty hard, especially in corporate settings. What we need more of are the opposite of what we've been collectively praising: we need more monolithic packages. Case in point: lodash.template is currently vulnerable with no mitigation, even though lodash itself is not. That's just sloppy publishing practices. Esbuild is a great start over the webpack/babel maze of dependencies. There's a stdlib effort along those lines that hopefully would also help. There's a bunch of micro-frameworks that are used in production just fine and have little to no dependencies.
Angular Is Rotten to the Core

Even better than JSX is straight up hyperscript or something like @hyperapp/html. JSX feels like a cumbersome attachment in comparison.9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Nov 2021
> JSX is valid JS. It is converted down to the same thing as what you describe, function calls to React.createElement().
> You could even alias all the elements to function names
You've just recreated what I mentioned two comments above in this same comments thread. :) See: https://github.com/jorgebucaran/hyperapp/tree/main/packages/...
This is what I'm arguing for over something like JSX.
Leveraging JS Proxies for the DOM
2 projects | dev.to | 9 Sep 2021
Using a proxy to create elements! While this clearly applies to Hyperapp (a "tiny framework for building hypertext applications"), there's no reason why this couldn't apply to vanilla JS.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning DalekJS yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
