Using the platform

I really like this post by Elise Hein on trying to build a stackless website. We’re so used to transpilers these days that how many of us really know how far we can get just using ES6 modules? I like that Elise is enthusiastic about the potential here without showing a hint of puritanism or naïveté. In most cases, we still need to transpile code. And web components just aren’t where they need to be yet to really challenge the dominant UI frameworks. But there’s value in returning to the bare platform to see and appreciate just how much we get for free nowadays.
