What's in The Boring JavaScript Stack

The ethos of The Boring JavaScript Stack is this 👇🏾

You can use your favorite frontend framework and build Modern Single Page Applications(SPA) without the hassle of the complexities that building SPA the traditional way bring to the table.

With The Boring JavaScript Stack, you don't need 👇🏾

  • Client-side state management - your application state lives in your database which is where it belongs.
  • You don't need an API for your SPA - the data each page needs gets sent to it as props thanks to Inertia
  • No double routing - The routing for your app is handled at the backend level with Sails

With The Boring JavaScript Stack, we want you to focus on what really matters - shipping to actual real users. We emphasize this by creating full-stack functioning templates that takes care of some of the boring stuff for you.
