Sprinkle Javascript with StimulusJS

In this world of Microservices, I am building a Monolith app. In this world of React and Vue, I am building a server-side rendered app. However, I need Javascript. I need some parts of the page updated dynamically. I need to show/hide individual sections of the page depending upon user actions. I don't want JQuery for obvious reasons. Slow.., Heavy and then, of course, it can easily create spaghetti code. I found the answer in Stimulus JS, a modest Javascript framework. It sprinkles Javascript to add behaviour to your HTML. Stimulus JS has a controller, action and targets (i.e. the HTML elements). Moreover, it pairs well with Turbolinks, and saves me the hassle of converting JSON to DOM. I've been using Stimulus for over a year and it's been quite good.

This talk is about Leena's experiences with Stimulus, along with a few examples. She will share recommendations on where it might be useful and where it is not.
