— I like combining Flux with template engines


Flux was for React components, but one can easily replace the component with their own that just uses a template engine under the hood

— Flux is like MVVM

— But an easier to use kind, unidirectional data flow and immutable state

— It also uses state diffing to patch things

— Decides what to re render

— I left Facebook years ago

— Political argument network

— Heh, like I said, I like the old ways

— MVC taught me a valuable lesson: don't use MVC

— I wrote all of them in a very large web app to start... A cooperative file manager like sharepoint, way better than Dropbox. I tried MVP, MVC, MVVM, and then Flux

— In Flux the data store/model is the "controller" and only patches state in response to hard coded actions
