I've been wondering if I should use more of React for the frontend. So far, I've tried to keep JavaScript itself to a bare minimum but it would be nice to have some easy interactivity.

@celia I like Chris Ferdinandi’s answer on that topic (, and I agree with him: it’s all about the level of complexity of your app, and the need for reactive DOM changes.

And this reminds me that I still haven’t tried Svelte JS, yet. 😅

@meduz Thanks, that was a good read!

Svelte looks very interesting and just what I'm aiming for - vanilla JavaScript in the browser. Might give this a try. :)
