  • Ask HN: Is there a CDN that pre-renders the app on the server? | 2021-10-11
    I think basecamp is working on this kind of technology, but I think it is somewhat common for some performance focused shops to pre-render their initial HTML and cache it in their load balancer.

    Basecamp I think is taking it a step further.. read more here:

  • Ask HN: Why aren’t frameworks like htmx more popular? | 2021-10-10
    Rails, one of the most popular web frameworks, comes with .

    I count this as very popular.

    While the tendency to over engineer web apps is strong, many teams opt for faster development.

  • Hotwire in Laravel app? | 2021-10-07
    Have any of you guys used the Hotwire stack ( in your laravel apps? How was your experience?
  • Reactive Clojure: You don't need a web framework, you need a web language | 2021-09-23
    I think Phoenix LiveView (posted recently on HN: and Rails Hotwire ( are the main alternatives that have momentum right now.

    The general idea being to abstract away the difference between client and server code, so that you can write code that handles both, in a single file.

    > There has got to be a better way

    What's offensive about the OP to you? Is it just that you don't like functional programming / Clojure (fair, that's ultimately a matter of taste / aesthetics at some level)? Or is there something about the technical implementation you think is suboptimal?

  • Sort tables (almost) instantly with Ruby on Rails and Turbo Frames | 2021-09-20
    Turbo Frames, along with the rest of the Hotwire stack, give Rails developers the ability to quickly build fast, modern user experiences without adding the weight and complexity that can come with JavaScript frameworks.
  • A tour of my side project
    I'm using tech I already know well, Ruby on Rails for the app, with hotwire on the frontend to make it feel a bit more app-like, plus this allows messages to pop in automatically via websockets.

  • Server-rendered modal forms on Rails with CableReady, Mrujs, Stimulus, and Tailwind | 2021-09-09
    While the full Hotwire stack can deliver this experience with about the same amount of effort, the power and flexibility of CableReady's chainable operations makes CableReady + Mrujs a better fit for this particular use case than the full Hotwire stack, in my very, very humble opinion.
  • Issues with rendering turbo frames in Hotwire | 2021-09-09
    Hello all! I am new to Hotwire and learning from the tutorial on I am having an issues where my turbo frame seems to not be rendering in the view even though it appears I have everything configured properly. When I view the inspector the frame itself is there, but is empty. I'm curious if I'm missing anything?
  • Are Rails monoliths still relevant? | 2021-09-03
    The modern "Rails Way" approach to the frontend is Hotwire (Turbo + Stimulus). It's a very pragmatic setup that really fun to work with. I've built 3 apps using that stack so far and I'm really happy with how well it works together. If you worry specifically about Rails frontend and Rails as a fullstack framework then give it a shot. It's worth it:
  • Documents ≠ Programs
    Or you could fly into the future and do things with websockets and HTML partials like what Phoenix Liveview (Elixir) or Hotwire is doing ( All of which are based on standardized APIs provided by a modern browser.
