Stimulus is a modest JavaScript framework used to enhance your existing HTML markup with rich functionality. It provides a lightweight and easy-to-learn alternative to other heavy frameworks like React and Angular. Stimulus works by identifying elements in your HTML markup and attaching behaviors to them through controllers, which are small and easy-to-write JavaScript classes. It also provides a simple and easy-to-use API for interactivity within your application.

Compared to other frameworks, Stimulus is easy to get started with and has minimal setup requirements. It is an ideal solution for simple applications that require small amounts of interactivity, such as form validation or modal windows. However, for more complex applications that require state management and larger codebases, it may not be the optimal solution.
