HTMX is a small (~14k), dependency-free, extendable frontend framework, with a very straightforward approach. It extends the Hypertext capabilities of HTML, without the need of using JavaScript. Basic concepts: Any DOM element can trigger HTTP requests Any HTTP methods can be used (not just GET and POST) The response from the server is HTML or HTML fragment State management is is server-side, frontend is simple and dummy HTML as content The concept of using HTML as content is nothing new 😉.
