@pfurini what I'd like to add is that it depends on the density of the state machine of your UI. I use Facebook often and I noticed lately on Android and Windows 10, they struggle to manage state properly, I often end up in an incoherent situation (I should be able to post something, yet it's preventing me to write it, or allows me to write it but something goes wrong, when I paste a URL (partial loading) or just trying to post something when messenger is open. SAM will show a lot of benefits when the underlying state machine is dense, when it's pretty linear (submit / sucess, error / view / submit / ...) SAM will not appear to bring much to the picture.

@jdubray interesting project.. that's the benefit of "big" frameworks like react, sure there might be lot of better architected alternatives (I'm evaluating the code of mithrill, inferno and other custom ones, and they are all better in various ways), but they cannot be beaten in terms of tools/components and IDE support availability

Yes, the only problem and that's a big one, is when you are hit with a massive refactor like the one people had to deal with (or not) when going from Angular1x to Angular2. Then you say never again. I lost my company in the 90s to such "refactor".

I thought reactide was for online code but then I saw it's an IDE that you download and install. I find that very odd! to have an IDE for a specific JS framework! I would think it's better to use an already existing solid IDE (such as VS Code, Atom, WebStorm, etc.) which have React support, not to mention support for other things you might need (TypeScript, CSS, etc.) and finally you'd use it for non-React projects as well.

@foxdonut looks like Reactid developed on top of Atom

Does anyone know if node.js can run inside Cordova? (not jxcore) maybe @devinivy ?
