Alpine.js has been described as "jQuery for the modern web". Alpine is incredibly lightweight, declarative, reactive, and can be embedded into any web page. Plus it requires no build or compile steps! It's the perfect solution for when you want to drop some SPA-like functionality into your existing codebase.
Alpine.js is only one JS file -- the entire library is 15 attributes, 6 properties, and 2 methods. And no need for installing NPM packages! It's not based on OOP, or JSX, or any of the other more complex systems that often scare away developers.
- Getting started with Alpine.js
- Basic syntax things
- Loops and if/else constructs
- Models, data, and binding
- DOM manipulation
- Talking to the server, APIs, etc.
