Welcome to Remix

Focused on web fundamentals and modern UX, you’re simply going to build better websites

Remix is a full stack web framework that lets you focus on the user interface and work back through web fundamentals to deliver a fast, slick, and resilient user experience. People are gonna love using your stuff.

export async function loader({ request }) {
  return getProjects();
}

export async function action({ request }) {
  let form = await request.formData();
  return createProject({
    title: form.get("title"),
  });
}

export default function Projects() {
  let projects = useLoaderData();
  let { state } = useTransition();
  let busy = state === "submitting";

  return (
    <div>
      {projects.map((project) => (
        <Link to={project.slug}>
          {project.title}
        </Link>
      ))}

      <Form method="post">
        <input name="title" />
        <button type="submit" disabled={busy}>
          {busy
            ? "Creating..."
            : "Create New Project"}
        </button>
      </Form>
    </div>
  );
}

I've been waiting for something to encourage progressive enhancement in the React space *forever* and Remix truly is so much more. Proving we don't need to sacrifice React or choose SSG for a lightning fast, accessible UI, and the DX makes it all too easy 🤤

While you were waiting for your static site to build, distributed web infra­structure got really good. Break through the static.

Remix is a seamless server and browser runtime that provides snappy page loads and instant transitions by leveraging distributed systems and native browser features instead of clunky static builds. Built on the Web Fetch API (instead of Node) it can run anywhere. It already runs natively on Cloudflare Workers, and of course supports serverless and traditional Node.js environments, so you can come as you are.

Page speed is only one aspect of our true goal though. We're after better user experiences. As you’ve pushed the boundaries of the web, your tools haven’t caught up to your appetite. Remix is ready to serve you from the initial request to the fanciest UX your designers can think up. Check it out 👀

Remix has a cheat code:
Nested Routes.

Websites usually have levels of navigation that control child views.

Not only are these components pretty much always coupled to URL segments...

...they’re also the semantic boundary of data loading and code splitting.

What about loading states?

Through nested routes, Remix can eliminate nearly every loading state.

Most web apps fetch inside of components, creating request waterfalls, slower loads, and jank.

Remix loads data in parallel on the server and sends a fully formed HTML document. Way faster, jank free.

Pre-fetching Everything

Nested routes allow Remix to make your app as fast as instant.

Remix can prefetch everything in parallel before the user clicks a link.

Public Data. User Data. Modules. Heck, even CSS.

Zero loading states. Zero skeleton UI. Zero jank.

Alright, you caught us, they’re just prefetch link tags, #useThePlatform

Data loading

You ever notice most of the code in your app is for changing data?

Imagine if React only had props and no way to set state. What’s the point? If a web framework helps you load data but doesn’t help you update it, what’s the point? Remix doesn’t drop you off at the <form onSubmit> cliff. (What the heck does event.preventDefault do anyway?)

Resilient, progressively enhanced data updates are built in.

It’s so simple it’s kind of silly. Just make a form...

...and an action on the server. The whole thing works with no JavaScript!

Remix runs the action server side, revalidates data client side, and even handles race conditions from resubmissions.

Get fancy with transition hooks and make some pending UI. Remix handles all the state, you simply ask for it.

Or get jiggy with some optimistic UI. Remix provides the data being sent to the server so you can skip the busy spinners for mutations, too.

HTML Forms. Who knew?

export default function NewInvoice() {
  return (
    <Form method="post">
      <input type="text" name="company" />
      <input type="text" name="amount" />
      <button type="submit">Create</button>
    </Form>
  );
}

export async function action({ request }) {
  let body = await request.formData();
  let invoice = await createInvoice(body);
  return redirect(`/invoices/${invoice.id}`);
}

Error Handling

Your websites run into problems, but with Remix they don’t need to be refreshed. Error handling is hard to remember and hard to do. That’s why it’s built in.
Remix handles errors while Server Rendering. Errors while Client Rendering. Even errors in your server side data handling.

Route Error Boundaries keep the happy path happy.

Each route module can export an error boundary next to the default route component.

If an error is thrown, client or server side, users see the boundary instead of the default component.

Routes w/o trouble render normally, so users have more options than slamming refresh.

If a route has no boundary, errors bubble up. Just put one at the top and chill out about errors in code review, yeah?

Oh snap!
There was a problem loading this invoice
That's probably enough for now. What are you waiting for?
