So that's why React has been pushing a bit harder on immutability lately to be able to build on top of it. Both have various tradeoffs but others are doing good research in other areas, so we've decided to focus on this direction and see where it leads us.

I did want to address a few points that I didn't see get enough consideration around the tradeoffs. So here's a small brain dump.

"Compiled output results in smaller apps" - E.g. Svelte apps start smaller but the compiler output is 3-4x larger per component than the equivalent VDOM approach. This is mostly due to the code that is usually shared in the VDOM "VM" needs to be inlined into each component. The tr

Javascript Study Notes

(by @pedpess)

These are my own paper version notes meeting the digital world. They are related to my learnings from 2017-18, or just stuff I thought would be nice to keep a record during the time I was grasping some Javascript topics.

PS: Don't expect all the material here to be 100% accurate or up-to-date. If you find some part that's wrong, or missing or old, please send me a comment to fix! :)
