Inertia

Published:

…If you make users download a CSS or JavaScript framework in order to benefit your workflow, then you’re making users pay a tax for your developer convenience. Instead, I firmly believe that user-facing tools should provide some direct benefit to end users.

Fortunately, there are frameworks which do consider the user and provide a good developer and user experience. These are Svelte and Astro.

Keith predicts that Astro will take over since it has less inertia as it works with syntax of any JS framework. It like how .css files are compatible in .scss but not with .sass files which use a custom syntax—you don’t need a whole new language to work with Astro.
