    The next-gen web framework.

  • astro

    The web framework for content-driven websites. ⭐️ Star to support our work!

  • the biggest thing is native html is a pain to make non-trivial websites with. JSX, via react, provides a nice modular API that easier to write and manage vs a blob of html and raw js files.

    Of course if web components, I haven't really looked into them provide a similar level of abstraction, thats great. If not people will end up (mis)using React and co because it's easier from a developer experience point of view.

    There are alternatives of course. Astro [1] produces native, static html from JSX. Deno has Fresh [2], which offers a similar thing in the Deno ecosystem. Next.js [3] has static html option, but last time I tried it, it wasn't as nice as Astro or Fresh in this particular area.
