What is Solid?
Reactivity, in programming, refers to an applications' ability to respond to changes in data or user interactions.
Traditionally, when a change occurs, the entire web page would need to reload to display the updated information. In contrast, when using a fine-grained reactive system, updates are only applied to the parts of the page that need to be updated.
Solid adopts the concept of fine-grained reactivity, updating only when the data the application depends on changes. This decreases work and can result in faster load times and a smoother user experience overall.
Advantages of using Solid
Performant: Fine-grained reactivity allows Solid to update only what has changed, resulting in faster load times and smoother performance overall.
Powerful: Using less memory and processing power, Solid is capable of creating complex applications without compromising on functionality. This also gives developers the flexibility over how and when updates happen.
Pragmatic: Rather than sticking to rigid structures or methods, Solid provides the freedom to choose the strategies and practices that work best for you.
Productive: Regardless of experience level, Solid's clear and predictable API makes developers' work simpler and more efficient.
Solid aims to strike a balance between speed, efficiency, power, and flexibility, all while providing a developer-friendly environment. This combination of features makes it a great choice to build responsive and high-performing UIs.
