3 - The revolution HTML Over The Wire is coming

Last years, using MVC framework was not an option as soon as you wanted a dynamic front-end. Having to reload a full page for every user action leads to a bad user experience and is indeed, not acceptable in 2022.

To add some dynamism to your page, you had to mess with jQuery and AJAX, which often lead to very complex and hacky code in y opinion. That’s why many of us started using SPAs when AngularJS came out. It was a true revolution!

Hotwire is the dedicated solution for Rails, made by its creator.

HTMX is a more generic solution usable with any HTML. I suspect lots of SPAs built today could be replaced by this approach, with more benefits that losses.
