Introducing Incremental DOM

Introducing Incremental DOM

Today we open sourced a little JavaScript library called Incremental DOM. Most of the work was done my by colleague Sepand Parhami (who you should all follow :)

The TL;dr is
- Designed to allow "virtual DOM style" DOM updates with minimal memory allocation per update
- Designed to be usable as a backend by your favorite templating language (As opposed to having a JS API or something like JSX)

G+ on phones and tablet and Google Photos on phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, 30" retina iMacs with underpowered GPUs, holograms, hacked up Android watches, that thing from Minority Report and my mom's Windows XP malware runtime from early last decade – how does it work?

Listen (or read I guess since they have a transcript) to Wahbeh Qardaji and me and our hosts Karen McGrane and Ethan Marcotte make it up as we go on this podcast about the responsive design of Google+ :)

Analysis by Paul Irish of Reddit Mobile's rendering performance

The TL;dr is: The "The DOM is slow, virtual DOM is fast" meme is somewhere between misleading and wrong. Doing any kind of extensive work in JavaScript during page load will kill you and JS size is still important.
