Discussion on: What are the pros and cons of StimulusJS and AlpineJS?

I'd say mainly in the use of a Gem and changing the location of code, stimulus code lives in it's own directory off of the Javascript directory. I really like that you add AlpineJS inline with your html - it makes for super readable code. With Stimulus I have to go hunting.

I'm ignoring the need for Yarn and Webpack as I have grown comfortable with these technologies, especially as they do seem to work. I know that I could use CDN's but I'd rather be in control and know exactly what is being served to users.
