Click button hello - textarea content doesn't change.
Workaround is to use value attribute for textarea, which is non-standard HTML, but works due to riot's special handling of input elements in sdom.js
Can confirm. Also happens on Edge in both master and next branches.
This is not an issue it's a design decision. It happens also with input tags http://plnkr.co/edit/zM8Mpx0vj7J9xi7FGTpH?p=preview we have already discussed it here. I am closing this issue because this behavior is what many of the riot users desire and expect from riot #1642 (comment)
Sorry, I'm pretty new to riot, but here the behavior seems simply not to be consistent between browsers. In Chrome and FF — the textarea value does change.
Ah ok so on ie not even the first update works now I got it! @iafan thanks for pointing it out
