Building a Web App in JS without client-side JS

Logan Keenan @dlogankeenan

Today, building web apps tends to involve a myriad of frameworks and libraries with many of them being shipped across the internet to be downloaded, parsed, compiled, and executed to deliver a web app experience. Not long ago, the web didn’t rely on client-side frameworks. What did that look like? What patterns were used? I’ll show you how to build a web app with only native APIs and without client-side JavaScript to demonstrate a different approach to building fast applications and explore patterns that are used heavily outside the JavaScript community.
