    Plays well with others : And get this, HTMX buddies up with your go-to tech. Rocking with Django or vibing with Flask? HTMX slips right in, boosting your game without a total remodel.

  • core

    🖖 Vue.js is a progressive, incrementally-adoptable JavaScript framework for building UI on the web. (by vuejs)

    Lean & mean : In a universe where chunky frontend giants rule, HTMX steps up as the slick alternative. It's not here to boot out the big guns like React or Vue. It's that streamlined choice when the heavyweights might just be a bit much.

  • Amplication

    Amplication: open-source Node.js backend code generator. An open-source platform that helps developers build backends without spending time on boilerplate & repetitive coding. Including production-ready GraphQL & REST APIs, DB schema, DTOs, filtering, pagination, RBAC, & more.

  • react

    A declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces. (by sbs2001)

    In the realm of web development, tools and frameworks are often weighed against each other to determine their strengths, weaknesses, and best use cases. As React is currently the reigning king of frontend, it’s expected one would compare HTMX and React. While they serve similar end goals of creating dynamic web applications, their approaches are different.

  • knockout

    Knockout makes it easier to create rich, responsive UIs with JavaScript

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

  • htmx

    </> htmx - high power tools for HTML

    Now, there’s a fresh perspective on the block: HTMX. It gracefully bridges that space between classic server-side rendering and today's client-side interactivity. No need to juggle a ton of JavaScript; HTMX has got you.

  • Alpine.js

    A rugged, minimal framework for composing JavaScript behavior in your markup.

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