Just venting here, but having used more templating languages than I care to remember (Jinja2, ERB, FTL, XSLT, JSX, Handlebars, etc), I find Hyperscript utterly horrid to work with.
In no particular order, the things it breaks include:
- Code portability (can’t copy/paste html snippets without running them through a converter)
- Syntax highlighting (turns everything into a huge blob) eg
- Code completion is FUBAR, let alone time-savers like https://emmet.io
I never thought anything would make me pine for the bad old days of PHP, but Hyperscript’s done it!
Is it just me?
