Hello World!

Let's get started by writing a super simple Slinky app!

If you want to test this locally, take a look at the Installation documentation on how to set up your own Slinky project.

The simplest Slinky app, which renders "Hello, world!" to the screen, looks like this:

import slinky.core._
import slinky.web.ReactDOM
import slinky.web.html._

  h1("Hello, world!"),

Slinky Modules

Slinky is split up into many modules, which make it flexible to support a large variety of projects and environments. Here, we are using two modules: core, which contains wrappers around React and provides the base classes for creating components, and web, which has wrappers around ReactDOM and provides the tags API (covered in detailed here) for constructing HTML trees.
