    </> htmx - high power tools for HTML

    I agree, and I'm trying to do something about it with two no-build libraries: - an 11k library that pushes HTML forward as a hypermedia, making things like AJAX, SSE and CSS transitions available directly in hypermedia - a 20k library that replaces jquery/javascript with an inline, HyperTalk inspired syntax

    Both can be included on a site without any build infrastructure, and both are attempts at bringing the joy of hypermedia and the joy of scripting, respectively, back to the web.
