re: Why is Isomorphic JavaScript not longer talked about? VIEW POST


We have an internal library that is intended to be use isomorphically however what is there are things that can be proven "right" with unit tests. Those are things like functional composition helpers, and math functions. The key is that there is no business requirements. Where we have cases like form validation it tends to be that on the frontend the validation is much more complex since we're trying to provide actionable feedback whereas on the backend we can just reject the input. The cost of trying to share code and having the two coupled explicitly is not really worth it compared to a looser coupling where both the frontend and backend can deploy independently.
