This is the 'PHP with jQuery sprinkles' approach I mention in the article, except with shinier things than PHP and jQuery. I'm not a fan, personally.

Phoenix LiveView is an interesting take on the problem, but I suspect you hit a limit as to how ambitious your UI can be when deltas have to come across web sockets at a consistent 60fps.

So do you think it’s impossible for a framework to effectively hydrate static HTML not rendered by that frameworks specified renderToString method?

I really don’t know what these functions do under the hood to allow rehydration so I’m just curious if it would be possible and achieve a good frame rate.
