Web Future: HTML-over-WebSocket

 The future of the web is HTML over the wire with Matt E. Patterson (The Changelog #435) |> Changelog


The Future of Web Software Is HTML-over-WebSockets

The future of web-based software architectures is already taking form, and this time it’s server-rendered (again).

StimulusReflex



Hotwire is an alternative approach to building modern web applications without using much JavaScript by sending HTML instead of JSON over the wire.




htmx allows you to access AJAX, CSS Transitions, WebSockets and Server Sent Events directly in HTML, using attributes, so you can build modern user interfaces with the simplicity and power of hypertext

htmx is small (~10k min.gz'd), dependency-free, extendable & IE11 compatible
