markdown guide

DEV is a rails backend serving mainly server-side content and typically for the logged on experience as well as the onboarding experience, Preact is used where it makes sense. There are also parts of the application that are vanilla JS modifying the DOM. Since the site is not a single page application (SPA), we do not use any kind of state management except for component state.

I'd recommend giving our front end documentation a read. There is also this article I wrote prior to working at DEV that got integrated into that documentation.

Let me know if you have any other questions!


Dev.to is actually open source, you can check the code on Github! They also have huge docs with a Frontend Guide
