Well, If you use React.js a lot of code becomes reusable in the form of
components, it provides seamless navigation, The site loads faster it has
good performance, and you can even do server side rendering to make it even
faster as your site does not have a lot of interactable components and yes
it can work even though the user has disabled javascript, If we use server
side rendering.

Apparently there are some React-based static site generators:


Nevertheless, I believe one can extend or override Pelikan (which is what currently uses) in a similar
way using plugins/etc.: ,
and I find python a saner language than JavaScript.

Moreover, there is a case against too much abstraction / over-modularised code:





Can you point to any concrete code smells (see ) in the gimp websites' current
codebase, that can be made less severe by using react, and won't be easily
fixable using Pelikan?

Or is this just hypothetical?

If you wish to help GIMP, there are other ways:

Hey, Are you guys willing to switch your website to react and
node.js stack, I'm willing to do all the coding for free, I will redesign
the website and will code the whole website, I just need too know that  
guys will at least consider this before committing to it. I'm an computer
engineer student in my last semester and I want to contribute to an open
source project that's why I'm doing this, Please let me know if you will
atleast consider this, Waiting for your reply :)  

I'm not a GIMP official, so my opinion is not autoritative. In my opinion, looks and functions well, despite being somewhat
reminiscent of and while having some minor
validation errors (see ). I also
it is a mostly static site, which can be an advantage (see

Why should we consider converting the site to React.js? Which advantages
this transition give us? Will it still be usable with JavaScript
blocking/blacklisting such as 's?

For the record you can find the website's sources here:
