  • Htmx Is Composable?

    > But honestly, torn towards htmx but undecided.

    We are in the middle of migrating from our monster react application into server rendered pages (with jinja2). The velocity at which we are able to ship and the reduction of complexity has been great so far.

    Managing client side state for simple things like (is the dropdown open/closed), listening to keyboard events and such can be done with something like alpine-js [1] without all the baggage that something like react brings.

    It appears this is already the trend with JS frameworks too - with server side rendering being the new norm.

    Sure, you can use any number of JS-avoidance libraries. I'm a fan of Turbo, and there's also htmx, Unpoly, Alpine, hyperscript, swup, barba.js, and probably others.
  • Kicking the tires with NestJS and Hotwire: Part II
    2 projects | dev.to | 15 Nov 2023
    If you want more details on the initial setup I encourage you to take a look at the Part I that covers more of the initial implementation. For this portion, I added Prisma as an ORM, a frontend style library called Tachyons, and AlpineJS to handle any client-side interactions. I did this to avoid needing to add a client-side bundler to the build and instead just rely on plain old module imports to compose the frontend. This is now the default for Rails and it is quite nice to not need any additional build tools for the client.

  • A First Look at HTMX and How it Compares to React

    The approach is not new, essentially a variation of Knockout, Alpine, and similar "JS-in-HTML" approaches.

    You're way out of the "simple website" territory already, If your backend is working and you know your way around it just make it render some HTML and send it to the browser. Then if you really want a javascript framework for interactive elements maybe alpineJS ?
