Today, I’m excited to announce Hyperapp 1.0!
This milestone means the API has reached stability and the churn is finally over. It took us almost a year to arrive at the current API and while it will never be perfect, done is better than perfect and I am extremely pleased with the result.
Thank you, everyone, for contributing your time, your feedback, and your code to this project! ❤️
Hyperapp’s architecture borrows from React, Redux, and Elm, bringing my own ideas and community-contributed feedback into the mix. Here is an example that shows all the moving parts working together. Try it live on CodePen.
JSX is neither a dependency or required to use Hyperapp, but we use it throughout the documentation and examples for familiarity.
Hyperapp was born out of the attempt to do more with less. I’ve always wanted to minimize dependencies and write simpler software, and Hyperapp has given me faith that it’s actually possible. Out of the box, Hyperapp combines state management with a VDOM engine that supports keyed updates & lifecycle events — all with no dependencies.
I also want to refine the documentation and work more on the ecosystem and tools: scaffolding, bundling, DevTools integration, etc. If you have ideas for improvements please get involved, hop on Slack or file a bug report on GitHub. We are on Reddit too!
If you’re working on something cool using Hyperapp, let us know on Twitter @HyperappJS! Happy hacking and happy holidays! 👋😉
