    </> htmx - high power tools for HTML

    The success of the web argues that the hypermedia approach is a good choice for a large set of systems.

    The problem today is that hypermedia development has been stuck in the late-90's/early-00's which, when contrasted with JSON/RPC-based development, is really showing its age, particularly in terms of UX.

    https://htmx.org is an attempt to rectify that situation and get hypermedia-style development back in the game as a viable, modern network architecture for more than just content-oriented web sites.

  • GitHub repo WHATWG HTML Standard

    HTML Standard

    RDF, JSON-LD and other "structured" formats try to allow clients to gain a certain understanding of what the data means... it's easy to understand that when you look at HTML's semantic tags [1], which let the browser and other clients know, e.g. what's the "main" section and what's just an "aside"... and structured data provided by RDF, Microdata [2] and JSON-LD (which were all the rage in the never-realized Web 2.0), which you can embed in the HTML itself in order to provide lots of metadata information to the client about the data in your web page.

    Today, these are actually used by, for example, search engines [3] to display data in a structured manner on searches!

    Unfortunately, I don't know of many other "creative" usages of this metadata, but I imagine there could be many... HATEOAS is IMHO still ahead of our time... I do expect that, at some point, it will be really beneficial to have clients that can have a good understanding of the information is shows to users, and one day it will suddently became the next big thing (again).
