Remix a whole new Glitch!

Hi everyone! We are super excited to formally announce our new line of starter apps along with support for generated static sites. Some of you have already been testing them out, and we’re super excited about all the things you and the rest of the community will create with them!

Read our announcement post to learn more, including other updates like better syntax highlighting support!

If you make something cool, be sure to post it in The Gallery category! And if your favorite framework is missing, we encourage you to create a starter for it and share, or post in Feature Requests. We are working on some cool ways to showcase and share your apps, so we want to hear your ideas and feedback!

Yayyy! I’m glad you’re excited for the syntax highlighting! It’s basic now, but we’re going to keep adding to make sure the highlighting for the frameworks you’re used to in an IDE are there :heart:

Just gonna drop these here:

Vue Router:

Vue + Vuex

I’m working on a Nuxt version right now, I want to make it as awesome as possible. (I also have problems with the way Nuxt builds files and SSR)

Credit to @Pufferfish101007 for the Vuex and Vue Router projects!

Really nice stuff. I especially like that on the new create-project page, we have these options for minimal variants:

Looking forward to trying it out!

In my experience Vue is much easier to learn and maintain than React, hence it’s grassroots popularity. Nuxt support from the get go seems like slight miss.

Keep it 100%

When I remix glitch-mvp-node

Firstly, it now uses Fastify instead of Express, which is… fine, I suppose (although it feels more opinionated with handlebars, etc.)

But the main thing is that package.json is wrong about name and repo link:

They should both say glitch-mvp-node

That’s all.

Also, sorry to pile on here, the default logs in the Fastify project are a lot less charming (and Glitchesque) than they were before.

Thanks for pointing this out @SteGriff !
I just notified the team and will let you know once it has been updated.

Hello! This is a great improvement to Glitch as many more people can use React and 11ty over just HTML/CSS/JS sites.

Wanted to say thanks for reporting these! We fixed up the package.json file you’d mentioned (and went though the hello/mvp package.json files for consistency as well!)

Fair point about the logging too. The depth of fastify’s auto logging was something we wanted to highlight for folks, but it really is a bit much — potentially intimidating, too. In light of that we switched things back to the “Your app list listening” for the -node hello and mvp starters, but with a quickie comment in server.js explaining how to set fastify’s detailed logging for debugging.

Appreciate the feedback!

maybe the nodejs-mvp project should use express…
