Remix – React Framework for Web Apps

The past few weeks I’ve been enjoying the newsletter of Remix, an yet to be released React Framework

Remix is a web application framework for React from the authors of React Router: Michael Jackson and Ryan Florence. It provides APIs and conventions for server rendering, data loading, routing and more.

You can also read some of its details in their introductory post from two weeks ago. I really like this post, as they build up their code examples in a step-by-step manner. In that post they cover their approach to:

  • File System Routing
  • Data Loading
  • Location-Based Cache
  • Meta Tags and Document Titles

Remix will be a paid product. Next to a Commercial License they’ll also provide an Affordable Indie License.

Remixing Noon

This is really cool: take the whole oevre of one author and build a sentence using Markov Chains based on two starting words. The picture above is a visualisation of the choices made.

The whole forest had been anesthetised, her temples wired, her senses stimulated, her eyes were not on Eva, not on Eva, not on Eva, not on anybody in that same realm, the land of dreams and nightmares.

Be sure to read the notes too, very interesting.
