I was going through Fresh, the new web framework of the Deno ecosystem. Some highlights are
- Selective hydration
- Server-side rendering with no-js shipped by default
The vanilla js was not easy to maintain, so the next wave was to invent opinionated frameworks on how to treat js as MVC. All these fast changes in the ecosystem made the situation worse for some, download a few mb's of js before a page can print
Hello World. Never made sense to me.
With SSR + no-js as the new cool thing (which is basically just plain HTML), we are again at the beginning of the 2000s—embracing HTML as the true web messenger.
