Rendering HTML on the server is very old school. Before we had much JavaScript, we rendered HTML on the server and used links and HTML forms for interaction. There are a zillion frameworks in a zillion server-side languages to do this, but mostly not in JavaScript.



> Rendering HTML on the server is very old school

That's not true as generally as you've phrased it. Rendering HTML on the server is very useful for certain kinds of sites, like blogs. It allows you to generate pages that can be cached and behave like static pages (with appropriate, static-like headers).


I agree. Old school doesn't mean it's not useful.
