Building Apps with Riot, ES6 and Webpack

Tue, Feb 10, 2015

I arrived at Riot after reading the Muut Frameworkless JavaScript blog post – read this first! The Muut programmers have put their money where their mouths are and built Riot, a minimalist Reactjs-like library called Riot for building reactive UI components.

Reading the Riot documentation the thing that struck me was how easy Riot is to understand – there are very few new terms and concepts to learn compared to React (which, to be fair, is also straight-forward compared to e.g. Polymer and Angular).

To help me learn Riot I ported my React Flux Backbone Todos Example to a Riot Todo app. This post is a compilation of notes I made documenting the experience.
