While many remember the epic hyperHTML: A Virtual DOM Alternative post I've published the 5th of March 2017, the first official implementation of the library was working as hyperHTML.bind(node) function for tagged literals the day before, and it's been in my experiments folder already for a little while.
At first glance people couldn't believe performance of the DBMonster demo shown in that article, and one of the best day of my life has been realizing, after a shit storm of negative comments about how badly I was selling fake performance, that in reality everyone blaming me didn't understand the benchmark, so that my library was actually performing close to twice as fast than any other.
It's a good exercise to read that whole thread, how many people changed tone or disappeared, after being slapped after their very same complains: them selling their product as faster!
The development after such successful blog post went crazy! So crazy, that as soon as I had to find solutions for common cases, I started making up intriguing API names so that at some point a method went out called frog.
