What are your three biggest barriers to adoption of a new framework?

Published on January 10, 2024 by David Pitman

It is easy for me as the core developer to get excited about Element and think it is the greatest thing since sliced bread. However, for the project to really make a difference it has to reach a critical mass of general adoption by web deve...


Element exists to create a forward step-change in web frameworks to empower the creation of a more equitable web. A few key innovations are core: 

  • low-code HTML-first approach: all code in Element is standards compliant HTML at all times. This is good for accessibility, performance and longevity. 
  • a foundation for a complete in-browser development experience: no build step is required to create advanced and performant apps with Element, all tooling lives within any modern web browser
  • promoting portable web app architectures that are served as static file and hydrated asynchronously via a distributed suite of web services: this enables low cost, high performance apps for the traditional web which are also easy to port into the web3 world. 

All of that is, or will be, underpinned by excellent comprehensive multi-modal documentation and developer support to push adoption as the next generation's web framework of choice.
