Intercooler is still maintained, but htmx provides new features and will continue to gain more. As such, you might want to port your intercooler apps to htmx + _hyperscript, which you can do with this guide.

The guide features such gems as:

htmx follows the approach of trying to keep the core small, with a smaller set of available attributes that are mostly focused on content loading and swapping.

Using the htmx events system with vanilla javascript, alpine.js or hyperscript.

Hyperscript is a small, open scripting language designed to be embedded in HTML, inspired by HyperTalk and is a companion project of htmx.

None. No direct equivalent functionality exists (TBC)

Functional Web Apps ?

MSM I’ve been building a thing for work using the https://arc.codes/ framework, and noticed that they have started to advise that lambdas/functions should return HTML rather than JSON.

A different way to solve all this complexity is to move up the cloud vendor stack. A Functional Web App (FWA) is authored completely as single-responsibility cloud functions that can render HTML-first dynamically, incorporating the full-stack such as a managed database.
