How to AlpineJS - Introduction

If you haven't tried Alpine.js yet you are missing out on the fun side of Javascript.

Alpine is a rugged, minimal tool for composing behavior directly in your markup. Think of it like jQuery for the modern web. Plop in a script tag and get going.

This post was inspired by Svelta, a copy-paste component library I made for Svelte(worth checking it out if you are using Svelte/SvleteKit).

I am in the process of rewriting those components and so instead of depending on Svelte for certain functionality, I decided to try Alpine.js. This way, you can still use the components in any framework.

In this series, I will share some tips on how to build simple components using this tiny but powerful framework and hopefully you may find some of it handy.

Wait there is more...
