    It all started with this blog post on A List Apart by Matt E. Patterson called The Future of Web Software Is HTML-over-WebSockets. In this article Matt talks about the advantages of sending HTML over the wire via AJAX requests or Web Sockets and the performance benefits they offer and he mentions tools and libraries like Hotwire, StimulusReflex and so on.

    These first three points are actually starting to be "in" again. They're called HTML-over-the-wire[1, 2]. And I am currently looking into implementing them for my site using Blazor (ASP.NET Core), because I think it's awesome.

    Fav thread ever!

    A good 5+ years ago I built HasGluten [1] with react backed by a google spreadsheet, hosted on github pages. Proven technology, it's still working.

    More recently I hacked together MultiPreview [2] with react + API served by firebase functions. I'm also temp using firebase hosting as I have little traffic, but plan to replace it with edge computing / CDN caching.

    MultiPreview is backed by Saasform [3]. This is more like a classic node/express (nestjs) application, but I really like how we're separating concerns: the SaaS = MultiPreview handles the biz logic / Saasform handles landing page + auth + payments.

    While building the new landing page I played with and liked a lot Bulma [4], I used but didn't like AlpineJS [5] and I'm thinking to move to Hotwire [6].

    My personal experience is that performance only matters when you're big enough, so in the near future I want to experiment more on usability / nocode side. And I'd love to see more open source alternatives to the big ones.

    I have been enjoying building apps with (server-side rendered with JS sprinkled on top) after using React/Vue heavily in the past.

    I'm amazed at how simpler & productive it has become to build apps without getting lost in the whole JS tool ecosystem.
