What do you think about Incremental DOM?


I’m very curious to know what the Ember devs think about Google’s newly introduced “Incremental DOM”:

In our own work with virtual DOM implementations we have found 2 major issues that we set out to fix:

  1. We really like templates. Our designers like templates. Lets make sure we can continue to use our existing templating languages.

  2. Performance, especially on memory constrained mobile devices, can suffer when large virtual DOM trees need to be updated a lot.

Might be relevant to the Android performance issues.


Most of the nicer Android phones are not memory constrained, ironically. Ye Olde Nexus 5 had 2GB of RAM; we are all still waiting for the first iOS mobile phone with 2GB RAM.
