  • The Qase for Qwik: Love At First TTI
    Marko is a huge leap in the right direction. It has streaming, partial hydration, a compiler that optimizes your output, and a small runtime. I’ve also heard through the grapevine that Marko V6 also adds resumability to the framework as well. - Source: / 3 months ago
  • Movies app in 7 frameworks - which is fastest and why?
    Nevertheless, the future of JS frameworks is exciting. As we’ve seen from the data, Astro is doing some things right alongside Qwik. However, more noteworthy frameworks such as Marko and Solid are also paving the path forward with some similar traits and better performance benchmarks. We’ve come back full circle in web development - from PHP/Rails to SPAs and now back to SSR. Maybe we just need to break the cycle. - Source: / 4 months ago
  • Client-side Routing without the JavaScript
    And that is a similar feeling to the exploration we've been doing recently. Inspired equal parts from React Server Components and Island solutions like Marko and Astro, Solid has made it's first steps into Partial Hydration. - Source: / 5 months ago
  • The Cost of Consistency in UI Frameworks
    I first posted this a year and a half ago but it's been haunting me ever since. I keep revisiting it. In my dreams, and my day job. When working on Marko 6, we couldn't make a decision and decided to throw an error if one tried to read a value already updated in that cycle until we could make up our minds. - Source: / 9 months ago
  • Syntax highlighting library support for modern frontend frameworks
    There is no support for newer frameworks like Marko, which have their own file extension (format). - Source: / 9 months ago
  • Ask HN: Which front-end framework would you use to build a web app today?
    Marko[1] immediately comes to mind. It’s developed by, and powers most of, eBay. High performance, “isomorphic” (same code runs server-/client-side), small client bundle with automatic “partial hydration” (compiler uses static analysis to only send JS for interactive parts of the view). Another good option might be Astro[2] which has a lot of similar goals to Marko, but lets you “bring your own framework” for the... - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • Marko: A return to the good ol' days of web development
    Let’s get this out of the way first — I understand the fatigue that comes with hearing about the newest framework of the week, but Marko isn’t a new framework. Rather it’s an older, and somewhat lesser known library originally created at eBay that focused on the whole server rendering concept probably long before that was a twinkle in the eyes of some of your current faves. (As a JS dev I'm obligated to say that... - Source: / 10 months ago
  • Does Google use Angular for all of its projects? Especially Youtube?
    I don't know if they still use it but when Ebay modernized their UI they created a Vue-inspired framework called Marko built around server-side string concatenation. I tried it once and it's pretty damn lean, it just never broke through to mainstream. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • The weirdly obscure art of Streamed HTML
    Marko, some library with an ungoogleable name and a rainbow logo… oh, and JSX-like syntax? And a client-side virtual DOM that fit in my budget? And eBay has battle-tested it for its ecommerce websites? And it only uses client-side JS for stateful components? You don’t say. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Is there a famous Multi Page App Framework based on React?
    Thanks for helping, but these are all single page application frameworks. I'm looking for something like Marko.js from ebay. So something that is truly doing MPA. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Building for the (next) Web
    Partial hydration has been around for longer than you might think. Marko is a tool built by eBay which had the concept of partially hydrating the page as early as 2014. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • [AskJS] Looking for "forgotten" framework/MVC
    The community was big, the website looked like and they didn't say they were an MVC or so. It was backed by lots of large companies (they showed). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Solidjs – JavaScript UI Library
    When I go to in Safari (14.1.2), the CPU load on my MacBook Air goes up above 100%. If I use the Brave browser, the CPU load is closer to 25%. Still too much. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Solidjs – JavaScript UI Library
    Heck of a library, and its creator, Ryan Carniato, is a very smart engineer who works on both Marko[0] and solidjs. He's really patient and answers my random questions on Twitter pretty reliably, I have to say I appreciate it! I have to say the performance that solid eeks out of the DOM is really next level. I think it could use a small augment in the docs about migrating from React to SolidJS, but all around the... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • The Quest for ReactiveScript
    There is another approach that I first came across talking with the Marko team almost 2 years ago. Marko is an interesting language because it heavily values markup syntax, and the maintainers had basically resolved that they wanted to bring their reactivity into their tags. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Understanding Transitional JavaScript Apps
    Now as some of you know this has been an area of focus for me the last couple years both with Marko and even to some degree with Solid. In fact it's kind of been on everyone's mind:. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Hydrogen: Shopify's React-based framework for building custom storefronts
    While I personally prefer JSX-based tools, I’d be remiss not to mention Marko[1], a component framework developed by eBay. It has (and has had for years) everything mentioned above the fold (s/React Server Components/automatic partial hydration/) other than, of course, any built in Shopify functionality. 1: - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • MPA, SPA and Partial Hydration
    This concept proposes hydrating only parts of the whole site - parts where we needs interactivity, this in turn help us ship less JavaScript to the client by only hydrate demanded components, thus improving page load time & time to interactive. As of now only some of static sites frameworks support this out of the box (which I know of): Astro & Marko. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Electron Adventures: Episode 41: Marko
    There are many Javascript frameworks, and even if you never used most of them, you've probably overheard their names. Then there's Marko. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Introducing the Marko Tags API Preview
    The Marko Tags API is a new set of Core Tags coming to Marko. They let you use state in your templates without using classes. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Building JavaScript Frameworks to Conquer eCommerce
    When I talk about this I find many JavaScript developers don't understand the difference and how profound an impact it has. How Frameworks like Marko, Astro, Elder, or Qwik are a completely different architecture than Next.js, Nuxt.js, or SvelteKit. - Source: / over 1 year ago
