UI and backend are separate so a UI can be created which doesn’t use JS.

There are only two devs working on the project and the backend takes most of their time. Using JS in the UI expedites the process of implementing features which may be why they went for it.

The user experience on javascript-enabled browsers is also really great. Going for a nojs-first approach would hurt UX a lot, especially on mobile.

Mobile has dedicated app which make this issue mostly moot.

I don’t want to install an app to get the same experience as the website but without tabs.

I agree. And the app uses flutter which isn’t good in lower end devices (such as my Redmi 4X), so it’s not ideal.

It would. If used properly, JS can have really improve UI/UX. Sure, you can make good JS-free pages, but JS can make it easier and arguably better (by being more dynamic, which appeals to a wider audience than static pages).

Not having that into account makes it harder when you want to replace it without JS and doing more requests to the server side.

It is preferable that if you use JS in the begining to make it easier, take into account that possibility.

Maybe, as a WebDev student I didn’t finish yet and can learn more into the basics, but the things I learned doing a replacement to Disqus in JSP without JS, later compared with the project this year with similar requirements but adding JS in the client side, got me into this.

If you want to revive Lemmy Lite, that would be great. We would like to ship something like that with Lemmy by default.

It would be really easy, just create a Docker image, install it with docker-compose along with the other services, then expose it under lemmy.ml/lite or similar. But I know that maintaining such a frontend would be some serious work. We simply dont have the capacity for that, Lemmy alone is a lot of work.

My preference would be to go entirely optional on JS like how Hacker News does it. A site aimed at a privacy focused crowd would benefit from the option.

Even better, js should be entirely optional.

Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
