Blitz.js is a fullstack react framework built on top of Next.js that uses a Zero-API approach for interacting with the backend.
I know I can't compare a mature framework like Rails to Blitz that barely has a year old, but I certainly miss the "there must be a gem for that" feeling.
The current serverless trend involves practices that I don't think are useful for 95% of the apps that get built out there
As cool as serverless is, I found myself always needing to go an extra mile to deploy a complete solution, and it's not for the lack of tools. I have come to the conclusion that the problems I'm tasked to solve are tricky to get right using a serverless approach.
