Since a little over a year ago, an interesting new category of development techniques emerged in the web technology space. I’m talking about Phoenix LiveView inspired libraries, which provide rich real-time interactivity without (much) client side code.
The basic idea is to keep a websocket connection open for every visitor, send events down the wire where you can react to it on the server side. Afterwards, a full “new” page gets rendered, the result goes back to the client and will then be merged with the current page via a pretty nifty library called morphdom. That might sound complicated, but it really isn’t. From a developer point of view, you won’t even notice how it works. It just does. And it’s plenty fast too.
