Hey everyone -- long-time lurker, first time poster. Thrilled to share the open beta launch of MightyMeld, a visual dev tool for React I've been building with some friends of mine. Just posted this blog post telling the story and why I'm excited -- Would love to hear your thoughts! I'm a former academic who's been driven into industry out of a desire to make the theoretical practical. MightyMeld is a "visual coding" that is not like any kind of "visual coding" i would've imagined if we hadn't've built this thing starting from real production code and saying "how can we make this more visual".

Awesome, I have been longing for this. Congrats on climbing this very steep hill! I'm curious to find out where it breaks, though I also believe it's a 80/20 case where I'm very happy to have sth visual for the 80 and am fine to do the 20 of styling in code still for now.

hey @Gregor! it does break, some things nicely supported but not everything. due to our "meld" philosophy where we "externalize the internal", a lot of stuff simply works and you get the control you need with niceties where possible. i think the best (or perhaps easiest for me 😁) way to explain it is to share a convo from our Discord, where one of our tribe who discovered MightyMeld was asking similar questions.
more on the Discord ( but -- well this is the general approach
and yes this project is stupid, to think that it could work but lo and behold it seems to be working out. would love to hear your deeper thoughts, if you get some time to explore further cheers! ❤️
