    Instant-loading web apps, without effort

    Another framework that hopes to aid with the implementation is a framework created by Misko Hevery called Qwik. Misko was also the author of one the first highly adopted SPA frameworks AngularJs and later Angular. Qwik's strategy is around what they call "resumablility". This means that the web server sends only the HTML and CSS over the network. It serializes all of the bindings for the DOM elements in the HTML. This framework know that javascript needs to be fetched by parsing the serialized data. When a user interacts with an element that needs new javascript, the framework fetches the javascript, parses the serialized data, and "resumes" the application by executing the javascript based on the bindings. This means that it does not need to rehydrate other elements on the screen. The javascript knows which parts to update based on the serialized binding data.

  • fresh

    The next-gen web framework.

    A third framework is called Fresh. Fresh runs on the Deno runtime. Deno is a newer javascript runtime created by the original Node author Ryan Dahl (Deno itself is a whole other topic). Astro and Fresh are very similar is philosophies, the major difference being Fresh is run in a Deno environment.

  • SurveyJS

    A Non-Cloud Alternative to Google Forms that has it all.. SurveyJS JavaScript libraries allow you to easily set up a robust form management system fully integrated into your IT infrastructure where users can create and edit multiple dynamic JSON-based forms in a no-code form builder.

  • astro

    The web framework that scales with you — Build fast content sites, powerful web applications, dynamic server APIs, and everything in-between ⭐️ Star to support our work!

    This is still a fairly new paradigm so implementation is still at its infancy. There are currently several frameworks that hope to help implementing this pattern. One is Astro. Astro is explicitly aimed at implementing island architecture. It has integrations with React, Svelte, and Vue to name a few frameworks that can be used.
