Hotwire in Action 🚀

Hotwire is a new and perfect tool to build a "just enough" or modest front-end stuff by sending HTML over the wire without using much Javascript 🥳 . In fact, one of Hotwire stack, StimulusJS is already wide-used by many awesome project and website since it debut. The most important thing about Hotwire is we can use it in any language or backend tool, not specifically for Rails. Either Go, Php, Django, Hotwire can build with it 🔥. Cool right.

Hotwire ship with 3 main tools 🛠 (StimulusReflex is a great combination tho) ;

Hotwire Stack

✅ Turbo
✅ Stimulus
✅ Strada (soon)
✅ StimulusReflex

Here, I create a list of awesome Open source applications, and websites that use Hotwire in Action. For example ;



  • annict - The platform for anime addicts built with Rails and Stimulus.js.
  • boxdrop - Dropbox Clone built with StimulusReflex
  • chat-hotwire-go - This is a simple chat app that shows how to use Go with Hotwire.
