From React to htmx on a real-world SaaS product: we did it, and it’s awesome! by David Guillot

We took the plunge and replaced the 2-year-of-work React UI of our SaaS product with simple Django templates and htmx in a couple of months.

We’d like to share our experience with you, with concrete indicators on various aspects, and convince your CTO!

@hynek 26 min En réponse à @kvalekseev That said & shitposting aside: nobody is saying React should literally go away. What htmx does tho is a re-democratization of web dev & the allergic reactions by SPA incumbents (NOT meaning you) are VERY telling.

Allowing to build rich web UIs in langs you like is a net positive.
