Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

It's hard to believe, but in 2022, the developer community continues to pump out interesting new frameworks for building web applications. Astro is a recent, open-source, multi-page application framework that renders HTML on the server and minimizes the amount of JavaScript sent over the wire. Astro seems particularly well-suited to content-oriented websites that pull from many different sources. We like the fact that although Astro encourages sending only HTML, it still supports — when appropriate — select active components written in the front-end JavaScript framework of your choice. It does this through its island architecture. Islands are regions of interactivity within a single page where the necessary JavaScript is downloaded only when needed. Astro is relatively new but seems to support a growing ecosystem of developers and code. It's one to watch as it develops.
