A non-trivial learning app in Next.js, Angular, Nuxt, Astro or Solid
The Movies App is a non-trivial demo application built on top of the TMDB (The Movie Database) API. It features multiple routes and views, authentication, dark mode and a range of performance optimizations.
Our goal is to educate developers on how they can build a good user-experience that can deliver reasonable performance while maintaining good DX. We discourage using these apps for drawing apples to apples performance comparisons as they were not built with this use-case in mind.
Note: While every effort has been made to optimize performance, these applications are not considered perfect and can be impacted by TMDB API latency outside our control. Feel free to learn from them or contribute back if you spot something we could improve!
Bonus: If you are looking for a learning resource closer to the "Rosetta stone" for frameworks, look at component-party.dev.
