It's Time to De-Fragment the Web
Over the past few years, the number of web frameworks available to us has exploded. In some ways, the breadth of choice is a clear win for our ecosystem. However, for many of us, it also comes with harsh drawbacks: - Have you ever used a popular open-sourced component built for framework A, and wished it existed in framework B? What about a design system library? - Does your company have frontends built in different frameworks, and your web teams are frustrated about the wasted hours needed to achieve a consistent design system? - Does your team build SDKs for web frameworks, and must manually re-write them for each framework? The solution to all 3 of these problems exists today. To fully understand it, we must first examine today’s web frameworks, re-think what a component should look like, and introduce a new Intermediate Representation of our components. This is what we have done at Builder.io when we created Mitosis, and we’re excited to share it with everyone.
