At eBay we are re-inventing how we build our web front-end in a way that scales to hundreds of teams and can handle eBay-scale traffic. Each team manages and develops their own independent application. Over the past few years, teams have been migrating to a Node.js stack using Marko (http://markojs.com/) as the view layer. Marko is open source and has enabled teams to build reactive, UI component-based apps that stream HTML from the server to deliver SEO-friendly pages that load quickly and minimize the time to first byte.
How does Marko compare to popular alternatives such as React and Vue? How are we using Marko? How can you get started with Marko? What other tools are we using?
Patrick Steele-Idem is a Senior Staff Engineer on the eBay Platform team and is currently spearheading eBay’s open source initiative and actively engaged in many open source projects (including Marko.js, Lasso.js and morphdom)
