Discussion on: Million.js - The Future of Virtual DOM

Million.js isn't competing in the same field as SolidJS -- Million.js is a Virtual DOM engine, which libraries can be built off of (e.g. React), and SolidJS is a fully fledged library.

Million.js attempts to use techniques specified to reduce diffing (the main bottleneck of Virtual DOM) by assuming that the library developer will leverage the compiler to optimize.

I see. I guess if you want to stick with React or Vue or whatever (they have huge ecosystems), then it does make sense. I'm not sure I see -- if the SolidJS approach works -- what the advantage is that makes building yet more VDOM-based libraries/frameworks. But maybe it's just me.
