Hyperapp is known for its small size, weighing in at around 1KB minified and gzipped. htmx.org is also lightweight, but its size can vary depending on the features used and the size of the server-side framework it is integrated with.
Hyperapp provides a simple and intuitive API, making it easy to learn and use. It has a small learning curve and offers a minimalistic approach to building web applications. htmx.org also aims to provide a developer-friendly experience by allowing you to enhance your existing HTML with minimal changes to your codebase.
Hyperapp can be used as a standalone framework or integrated into existing projects. It has its own state management and routing solutions. htmx.org, on the other hand, is designed to be integrated with server-side frameworks like Django, Rails, or Laravel. It works by enhancing the server-rendered HTML with dynamic behavior.
