The closer-to-standards web framework
Nue is a simple React, Next.js, Vite, and Astro alternative focusing on minimalism, separation of concerns, and semantic web design.
What is Nue?
Nue offers all the essentials for standards-based web development:
Build user interfaces with obvious, HTML-based markup
A (2.3kb) alternative to React, Vue, and Svelte
Bring back the power of modular, cascaded styling.
Standards-based alternative to Tailwind and other CSS-in-JS libs
Bring back content-first approach to web development.
Semantic alternative to Headless UI and Shadcn UI
Small, standards-based, and themable UI library.
Rich, human alternative to Markdown, MDX and Markdoc
Model-view-controller: separate your view from the business logic.
Common sense alternative to React router, Redux, and Pinia

What a great contribution to the world!
Awesome project, feels very refreshing even for me being a great fan of Vite and Astro.
Seems like Nue could finally bring back something we lost all the way
Nice to see you still out in the wild writing code and working to solve problems in our ecosystem @tipiirai
It's really awesome to see this recent counter-revolution of developer tools emphasizing simplicity. Nue gives me the same optimistic, feel-good vibe that htmx and Alpine.js gave me when I first read about them.
This is surprisingly good news for the frontend. I'm looking forward to the release of Nue's entire ecosystem.
I am very impressed by the examples, they are so easy to read. I have zero experience with React, Svelte and JS in general, but after reading the examples make me want to learn more.
More frontend devs needs to stop following the herd and think for themselves and look back at how hackers used to work back in the day to use as little memory as possible.
Insanely impressive. Well done 👏
I'm really rooting for your project to grow. I'm very excited about its concept. Because I think no framework has it figured out yet, so I really welcome every new solution to make web dev easier.
If you haven’t tried Nuejs yet, you better hurry up and give it a go!
Great job with Nue, you are hitting many of the pain points I had with the frontend tooling.
It's funny how React and other frameworks spent so much effort abstracting the render loop, meanwhile Nue is just like "call update()". And in the end, Nue looks a lot simpler to use.
