  • Perla

    A cross-platform tool for unbundled front-end development that doesn't depend on Node or requires you to install a complex toolchain

    If you need to handle dependencies via CDN/Local Dist file then some dependencies won't work because they use node like imports import {} from 'lit/some/sub/directory.js browser imports need to start with / or ./ or even ../ so they can be valid ES module imports thankfully for this you can check out in a shameless plug one of the projects I'm working on: Perla which handles this precise case but I digress, the ideal situation would be you with npm and already figured out how to serve node dependencies to your compiled code.

  • fable-browser

    Fable bindings for Browser Web APIs

    Please remember that each F# file is equal to a single JS File when it's ran through fable so you can create scripts for specific pages, you don't need to import/export everything from a single entry point and you can use fable-browser to do DOM manipulation, so it is not necessary to add a whole SPA framework to enhance parts of your monolith.
