If Solid then React?

January 24, 2023

The name "React", is technically a misnomer, as it implies that the DOM "reacts" to a change. The crucial difference here is between "fine-grained reactivity" and what React does, which is blow-out the whole UI and re-render it.

But recently, something exciting seems to be happening in React-land, and fine-grained reactivity might be coming to React natively!


We've had primitives like RxJS and MobX before, which work on the ideas of streaming data and observables. But this is slightly different. The use of ES6 Proxy object makes this as smooth calling a 'setter' funciton and seeing a change in the object

What if we can just write reguar old React code, but it'll be fully performant? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGEMwh32soc
