Why hypergen?

For a more technical explanation about the what and the how, check out our github page and read the documentation.

We've been building Django apps for over 12 years, and have played around with different approaches. From nojs html pages, over jQuery enhanced apps to full blown server/client separation with React. We love composing html with jsx but felt a lot of our time was spent munging data between server and client, duplicating logic and keeping up with the extremely vast and ever-changing javascript ecosystem.

We felt there was a better way. For us.

We wanted something that feels like one single thing. Just like Django does. We felt using html templates creates a second language and doesn't compose well. We also wanted pain-free binding of DOM events to server functions as well as a simple way to instruct the client to run javascript functions.

And Hypergen was born.
