HTMX is the Future

Unlike SPAs, HTMX doesn't throw away the architectural approach of REST; it augments the browser, improving its hypermedia capabilities and making it simpler to deliver a rich client experience without having to write much JavaScript if any at all.

You can use whatever programming language you like to deliver HTML, just like we used to. This means you can use battle-tested, mature tooling, using a "true RESTful" approach, resulting in a far more straightforward development approach with less accidental complexity.

HTMX allows you to design pages that fetch fragments of HTML from your server to update the user's page as needed without the annoying full-page load refresh.
