Solid… does not use a Virtual DOM. Instead it opts to compile its templates down to real DOM nodes and wrap updates in fine grained reactions. This way when your state updates only the code that depends on it runs.
Solid takes a lot of cues from React, but sets itself apart in that it doesn’t use a Virtual DOM. Here’s what Michel Weststrate had to say about it on Twitter:
Not a revolution, but really solid (pun) evolution; clean component model, really efficient run-time model, deeply embedded reactivity. Definitely think it’s worth giving it a shot in fresh new, limited scope projects!
