127: Jonathan Reinink - Building Modern Monoliths with Inertia.js

In this episode, Adam talks to Jonathan Reinink about Inertia.js, a new framework he recently released that lets you build single page applications with Vue, React, or Svelte, without having to give up the productivity benefits of traditional server-side development workflows using tools like Laravel or Rails.

Topics include:

  • What Inertia.js is and what problem it solves
  • Why Inertia is more like a protocol than a framework
  • How navigation works in Inertia
  • How form submissions work in Inertia
  • How Inertia automatically updates your assets for visitors when you update your code
  • Handling flash messages and validation errors work
  • Building applications with persistent layouts
  • Showing placeholder screens with Inertia while data is loading
