What is Hotwire

Hotwire (HTML OVER THE WIRE) is an alternative approach to building modern web applications without using much JavaScript by sending HTML instead of JSON over the wire.

  1. It is built by Basecamp (it powers the HEY email service).
  2. It has a healthy ecosystem, and there are many relevant projects, tutorials about it.
  3. It is already very popular in the Rails community and PHP community (Laravel, Symfony).

React, Vue

If you are not sure if you should use React, Vue or other client UI framework, then they might be heavy option for you

And I recommend you to read this post written by DHH (Creator of Ruby on Rails)

Stimulus 1.0: A modest JavaScript framework for the HTML you already have


In SaaS Hammer, we recommend you to stick with Hotwire and quickly get things done.

If you need complex solution such as React or Vue later, our modern frontend stack can work with them as well 😊.
