Bringing React's ideas to server-rendered Rails views  ↦

We didn’t do too much coverage of Rails 6.1 release last week, but here’s a great write-up on the GitHub blog about how they landed a couple small PRs into the framework that dramatically changed how the company is building views with ViewComponent.

This comment was particularly noteworthy, methinks:

Inspired by our experience building component-based UI with React, we set off to build a framework to bring these ideas to server-rendered Rails views.

Good ideas propagate. Regardless of what comes next in the web UI world (or React goes from here), this single idea is so profound for building frontends that it will be React’s lasting legacy.
