On this episode we have Carson from Big Sky Software on to discuss how his htmx library is an extension to HTML that brings needed dynamic functionality to the modern web without bringing complexity.

Joined by Ben Croker from PutYourLightsOn, we discuss the type of problems that htmx is designed to solve, which is dynamism & fetching backend data.

We also discuss how it’s ideologically similar to Alpine.js and Tailwind CSS, in that it’s HTML-centric: you’re not writing JavaScript code, you’re adding attributes to your HTML.

We also meander around topics like REST, HATEOAS, Thick Clients vs. Thin Clients, and a veritable smorgasbord of other fun stuff, so tune in!
