Guys, this is indeed an really cool feature for Marionette and I'm really looking forward in start to implements in some my side projects, just to see how it work and performs with some real cases.

Anyway, Really thanks to be away from the JSX, unfortunately they try to solve a problem so far from what they got from XHP, since hhvm is not a everyday case, I'm really happy to see emerging some alternatives in this way.

I think the dom it self is generic speaking a better approach to represent ui's and app status. So far is really a big advantage don't try to solve it with the gap of other languages like php has, in dom.

Now I'm glad to all this, but in the same time a bit scared in when I can actually use this in production.

@samccone Yes you are right, but there is some controversial aspects for trust on it.

1) No cross browser testing, which vendors are supported? Same for dependencies, like html->vdom.
2) No embraced vision for Marionette it self.

Did you thinks this approach can be generic speaking more powerfull once is full integrated with a unique vision framework, whit some consolidate principles Backbone, give to us? And maybe get the vdom transpiler officially supported by the framework it self?
