@RubenDeAndrade if you're using opal-query you can just Eelement['.my-element-selector'].html = "<h1>hello world</h2>"
There are of course many other options depending on the details of your app

@papilip - yeah good for you... We have a medium size app that is now completely in ruby (opal) on the client... a much better way to live :-)

@papilip @RubenDeAndrade glad you enjoy it, consider using opal-hot-reloader -- while the benefits are most dramatic when used with ruby-hyperloop (real time updates of hyperreact components w/o refreshing), still useful for non hyperloop Opal apps, I have a number of older apps I use it with along with either embedded opal-irb and opal-console (which I really need to update these days - it works on newer opal versions but says it doesn't and there's a workaround to get it to work)
