Awesome StimulusJS

Modestly awesome list of StimulusJS related content.

Stimulus is, in many ways, the opposite of other modern frameworks available today. Here is what creators have to say about it:

It doesn’t seek to take over your entire front-end—in fact, it’s not concerned with rendering HTML at all. Instead, it’s designed to augment your HTML with just enough behavior to make it shine. (c)

This repository aims to showcase what is possible with this approach and link any other helpful content for your modest JS journey.
