Isomorphic

Isomorphic rendering on both client and server, along with fast-booting from server-side renders.

Inferno is different, yet familiar...

  • Inferno doesn't have a fully synthetic event system like React does. Inferno has a partially synthetic event system, instead opting to only delegate certain events (such as `onClick`).
  • Inferno doesn't support React Native. Inferno was only designed for the browser/server with the DOM in mind.
  • Inferno doesn't support legacy string refs, use `createRef` or callback `ref` API
  • Inferno provides lifecycle events on functional components. This is a major win for people who prefer lightweight components rather than ES2015 classes.
  • Inferno is able to use the React Dev Tools extensions for Chrome/Firefox/etc to provide the same level of debugging experience to the Inferno user via `inferno-devtools`.
  • Inferno styles are set using CSS property names [background-color: blue] rather than [backgroundColor: blue]. camelCase styles are supported through inferno-compat package.
