Hype & Teasers

My biggest struggle with @remix_run so far has been grasping the simplicity it presents. Before remix, I'd been over-engineering and overthinking almost everything, re-inventing the wheel when not necessary. You should try it for yourself sometime.

I tried @remix_run yesterday. I built a simple static one-page website in an hour.

I barely had to look at the docs, this thing is so easy to start with!

Looking forward to building more complex things with it.

I just had something weird happen. I couldn't remember how to manage radio inputs the "React Wayℒ️." Then it dawned on me, I've only been working on a @remix_run app for over a month now. That app has radio inputs, but they function as normal HTML ones.
