People who are telling you that you need $HYYPETECH in order to have a modern website are really annoying.
No, I do not need to use $wellknowncdnthatcontrolstoomuchoftheinternet in order deliver my website better.
Oh and I also do not need to setup my own kubernetes to host my measly blog.
Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.
This toot is my condensed response to various $HYPETECH related Blogposts I have read in the past few days.
@mzumquadrat I use phug (php pug) on my sites and already feel like I'm sometimes overdoing it with the tech.
@mzumquadrat I see your point. But unless it's an actual web app, it's still rather see it fully working without the need for js. One day, we'll have a web without carousels…
One can only dream. :)
@mzumquadrat no you don't but would be better if you did for UX porpouses. But sure, to each its own. Personally I think a good CSS framework is better.
@mzumquadrat and there I was, looking at all these devs coding sites in fancy JS frameworks, thinking "did I miss the train? why do they do this?"
It's really just overcomplicating things. I hate to manage the packages all the time - you spend more time fixing your site than building it. So yeah, completely agree with you there.
In the end it's as absurd as G's "implement AMP JS to speed up your site", lol that.
@mzumquadrat Interesting that a lot of defenders of $HYPETECH are using UX as a point. I've found a lot of js driven pages completely bloated and buggy due to the weight of "UX" they try to pile on. Start with a good designer and html/css. Sprinkle in some js if the job calls for it. It should be that simple.
