Discussion on: Am I the only one seeing possibilities with React Nil?

Sorry, I'm even more confused. And you didn't explain anything to me. What React has to do with making queries? And what means miniscule to you? Completely different architecture? What exactly you want to wrap in a React component on the backend side? Excuse me, if I sound like some dummy šŸ˜…

You can already already make queries (fetch, Axios, SWR, React Query, GraphQL, etc.) from React (DOM or Native). Since React Nil allows you to run non-GUI components on the backend (or frontend I guess, but what's the point?), it can essentially follow the frontend routing to offer the appropriate expected data through an abstraction. Kind of an extension of "write once, run anywhere."

Until I have time to flesh out what I envision into my own preliminary library (and since I just started working on a new product idea and a new podcast that inspired it, that may be a while), I'm really not sure how else to explain it, unfortunately. It's such a new library that there aren't any applicable examples in the wild yet AFAIK, but the README hints at the same potential.

After all, you intrigued me. I hope something will come out of this. So Iā€™m waiting for your React library for backend & frontend šŸ˜‰
