The panel talks with Jonathan Reinink about his new library, IntertiaJS. InertiaJS is a tool that allows you to create a monolith server rendered site, but where you write your own custom back end, and then use a front end framework like React, Vue, or Svelte. We discuss how Intertia works at a very granular level, how it compares to tools like Next.js and Nuxt, why monoliths are better than using APIs, how Interita handles authentication and form submissions, and much more.
