lbfalvy11020108dSuspense is made tolerable by React-query, which you can use as a shim with sensible data fetching libraries that don't incorporate a particular UI library.
jonas-w4331108dOh no poor meta :((( sad little thingy, doesnt get what it wants :(((
fzammetti1153108dYet, with all that, React is pretty much always at the top of any list of webdev framework/library/toolkit/whatever over the past couple of years (though jQuery sometimes still comes out on top due to Wordpress usage). Kinda hard to square that circle, no?
melezorus343799107dReact native web sounds just like how i overengineer shit
Oktokolo8342107dOnce upon a time their PHP transpiler looked promising. But then they pulled a Google and abandoned it.
It's a librairy, not a framework.
If these 10 people never heard of it, than it's a blip on a radar :)
I'm not saying it's bad, i'm just saying that I never heard of it. And if it was a "huge sucess" (see react) I would've heard about it !
But tailwind is not wide spread. It's a good thing in theorie, it completly fails on big applications.
And I know what it is and how it works. Because i'be heared about it.
It's like "go", i'be hearded about it, I did a bit pf research. But I knind of know what this language is.
"lit" is so so small, there is only 11K stackoverflow querstions.
So talking about "great sucess" nop.
Even my prefered knockoutjs has more questions then lit.
(ofc, it's a dumb metriic, but it shows how many noobs are using it).
My only point is :
You cannot say that react is a fail (Even if personally I would burn on fire any dev who even considered using react). React, obkectivly, has a very wide spread, well know and adpoted.
Lit ? No one heared about it. Good luck finding a front end dev with "lit" competances.
Again, noyt saying it's bad, I don't know. never tested.
React, on the other hand, is a thick layer of abstraction built from the ground up, and it lives by its own rules. Lit lives by the rules of web components.
If you want a fair comparison, compare React and Web Components. Don’t forget to compare their trend lines since inception.
But web components are not a framework. It’s a language feature like mutation observer, local storage or es modules. There is no point in comparing frameworks to web components. Web components already won by merely being a standard that people liked and adopted.
Lit is merely a figment of whole new web components landscape.
Think of react as of top framework for html4 and that old js that came with it. Does it work? Yes. Popular? Yes.
Will it be replaced by a new standard where it’s not gonna be needed anymore because new standard is more powerful? Inevitably so.
