JS component-centric libraries and my rationale for considering MithrilJS

An exploration of my current thinking on component-centric libraries and why I am heavily considering using MithrilJS in primetime.

JS component-centric libraries, and why I’m considering MithrilJS for some major work Recently I’ve picked up a contract that requires taking a relatively old server-side rendered codebase with some JS bolted on to a more “modern” front end javascript stack. As those who do front end will immediately notice, just the notion of a “modern” front end JS “stack” can mean so many things (when it probably shouldn’t). There is a plethora of approaches, libraries, frameworks, ideologies to be found on the front end (possibly representative of programming in any niche as a whole).

Using jspm, systemjs, and vuejs together

Getting JSPM, SystemJS, and Vue.JS to play nicely together

Using JSPM, SystemJS, and Vue.JS together tldr; There isn’t much much vue-with-jspm support outside of the systemjs-plugin-vue, so I made a thing that compiles jspm templates from html files, and JSPM+VUE is really working for me. Also, Vue.JS is the view library people should recommend to beginners. Not React. Lots of words about JSPM It looks like jspm isn’t winning the mindshare of new JS developers these days. Though I’m not sure I can blame anyone for not having mindshare left to give, with the constant onslaught of new libraries, frameworks, doodads and what-have-yous that pop up from day to day.
