  • tetra_blog

    This is a repository for a blog app built using the tetra framwork.

    This article introduced you to Tetra and its components. You learned how Tetra functions and performs full-stack operations from a single file by building a simple blog app that performs CRUD operations. The Tetra home page contains some additional examples of how you can build some simple applications with Tetra. If you’re also interested in learning more about this framework, the documentation is available to guide you. You can check out the full implementation of the blog app on GitHub.

    Tetra - A full stack component framework for Django using Alpine.js (by samwillis)

    Most full-stack applications separate frontend and backend code into distinct files; most web frameworks are built based on this structure. As the number of files and lines of code increases, it may increase the complexity of your codebase, thereby making it even more difficult to debug. The complexity caused by these separate files was minimized through the introduction of a framework called Tetra.

  • Zigi

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!

  • Django

    The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

    Proficiency in building monolithic applications using Django

  • React

    A declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces.

    A tetra component is a unit of code that handles its Python, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript logic as an entity in a single Python file. If you’re familiar with the React framework, you can liken the behavior of its components to the Tetra components, except that React components perform only the frontend functionalities.

  • esbuild

    An extremely fast JavaScript and CSS bundler and minifier

    Tetra builds your JS/CSS components and packages them using esbuild. This allows you to trace any errors that may occur on the frontend implementation to your source Python files.

  • Alpine.js

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

    Tetra is a full-stack framework built with Django on the server side and Alpine.js to perform frontend logic. Tetra allows you to have frontend and backend logic in a unified location and reduces code complexity in your application. It connects the backend implementation with the frontend using a class known as the Component class.
