Seriously, just use web components.

Here's a slide-based presentation I built, it's just HTML, with behavior handled by web components.

Thanks, Im meaning to look into web components (and vue for that matter)

Some people seem to think that I believe JS (react et al) are evil and all, but it's not the case. I've developed web applications using them.

The point I am trying to make is that most of the time you dont need it and you'll have an easier time developing a progressively enhanced website; and your users will have a better time too.

The head dev at ING expressed this nicely a few years back.


To loosely paraphrase: it's not bad to write JS, but is bad to write (or use) JS that you don't have to.
