Server Side Routing - Fluxible, Flummox, Fluxxor, or...


The next step for my learning is to get some server-side routing plugged in. I'm familiar with express, but have heard that Fluxible is catching on as a good client/server approach.

So far, Fluxible looks most attractive to me because of the clear handling of GET and POST verbs in one place. I'm trying to understand if it handles static content files (css/js) too though, or if I'd still need to have Express in place for that.

Hey Jeff, this is a great topic - something I've been asking myself a lot lately. I fell into the trap of jumping head first into reflux too quickly. Coming from a CQRS background I thought this would be a walk in the park but quickly got lost in jumping through the proverbial hoops. Now it's possible I was just being a typical noob, but I found quite a few guys were having the same issues. Yahoo have been hot and cold for me on the stuff they produce, so I was a bit skeptical about fluxible and although I haven't gone large with it yet, the POC stuff I've built look a lot cleaner and easier to digest. Could also be because I've been doing a lot of REST APIs lately and the feel of it seem familiar - who knows - I look forward to reading about your journey!
