I notice a lot of people went with React
What is the best (most comprehensive) UI framework out there?
Your opinions please :)

@mistergibson @elia one more UI (and full stack) framework in early stages is https://github.com/balmoral/robe. It’s been a personal learning project, and good enough to use in a restricted beta production app. I’m not currently able to provide much support to others, and there’s no documentation or specs yet! The README hypes it up a bit, mostly for self-encouragement. Feel free take a look and use anything that’s useful.

Hyperloop looks pretty cool, but someone said they are dropping support for Opal?

yes, hyperloop drops support for opal 0.10
@mistergibson ruby-hyperloop supports opal 0.11 :tada:

@mistergibson that was me being confusing... @fkchang was asking about relative use of opal < 0.11, and I am just saying that our plan for hyperloop release is to require opal 0.11 or better, and that at least one big project has upgraded to opal 0.11 without any big problems.

@catmando : I can require hyperloop in my pre-compiled .rb can I not? I'm new to it. I prefer to get all my deps in one .rb file and compile the whole she-bang into a .js include.

@mistergibson hyperloop believes in omakase (chief's choice) but I would not recommend it. I think you will find it much easier to let hyperloop manage your dependencies.

@catmando : I'll look into that - thanks :) (BTW: great job on hyperloop itself - it looks beautiful).

that said if you want to learn from the bottoms up, I recommend starting with hyperloop-js which just gives you all of client side hyperloop as a js include file. You just wont get any server side goodness.

ok

if you are interested in that approach look at the chat tutorial. You build a client side only app.

but personally I would recommend going through the 1 hour video tutorial and building the TodoApp. This will give you a better idea of the big picture and what hyperloop is capable of . BTW there is a gitter room dedicated to hyperloop here:
