To be honest, I'm not sure how far I'll clean this part of the project up for now. I think I'll try embedding live examples somehow (complicated build process...), but first I'd like to get some writing done.

Progress. The upcoming Asteracea mdBook now executes components examples during build and embeds the resulting static HTML in a new code block.

The input is at github.com/Tamschi/Asteracea/b , with setup code nearby.

I've decided to develop more of my crates in the open from (relatively) early on, so:

The first unstable release of Asteracea proper is now available 🌼 crates.io/crates/asteracea

It's a web app framework born from frustrations with Angular and React, mainly geared towards aggressive but readable boilerplate removal.

There are (lots of) rough edges right now and documentation is lacking, but you can see some samples in the readme and, if you're curious, scraps in tests/templates.rs.
