  • hyperapp

    1kB-ish JavaScript framework for building hypertext applications.

    Project mention: Espresso.js – minimal React alternative – is now a decade old | | 2022-10-05

    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[1] or even Preact, that has a similar bundle size.

  • SocketCluster

    Highly scalable realtime pub/sub and RPC framework

    Project mention: On the Unhappiness of Software Developers | | 2022-09-03

    This resonates with me 100%. Every bit of unhappiness I've felt in my career so far has been caused by a bad manager. The main issue for me has been the final point you mentioned about "Imposed artificial limitations" - I cannot tell you the number of times that I've been forced to use an inefficient tool or do something in a sub-optimal or downright incorrect way (knowing that it would have to be re-written later) by a bad manager... In some companies, it was a daily occurrence; that's why I never stayed at a single company for longer than 2 years. It's almost impossible to find a company that lets me implement things correctly.

    Thankfully, nobody could constrain me in my open source work. I (with the help of community members) built:

    - SocketCluster ( A distributed pub/sub framework.

    - Capitalisk ( A lightweight quantum-resistant blockchain which is less than 5K lines of code.

    - LDEX ( A deterministic decentralized exchange (DEX) which can work with many different blockchain protocols. It's less than 4K lines of code in total and only has 3 small third-party dependencies (including sub-dependencies).

    🛵 The stylish Node.js middleware engine for AWS Lambda 🛵

    Project mention: Ask HN: What would be your stack if you are building an MVP today? | | 2023-01-26

    I mean I'm literally building an AWS lambda function that outputs HTML when it's called via API Gateway. So someone hits, then the MyCoolPage AWS Lambda function is executed and outputs whatever.

    If you're interested, I use as a middleware engine for my AWS lambda functions which I find helpful.

    I use the open sourced serverless framework for doing deploys

  • neo

    The application worker driven frontend framework (by neomjs)

    Project mention: I scraped +650K frontend jobs for 14 months and here are the Most Demanded Javascript Frontend Frameworks in this 2022 (From October 1, 2021 to November 30, 2022) | | 2023-01-18

    I'm hoping maybe the guy behind Neo.js and the Vue team can collab to put out an even faster framework that does more with the canvas as opposed to direct dom manipulations. As far as I can tell webGPU & wasm will reshape how things are done in the frontend and it may make sense to just render everything inside of a canvas.
