Astro stands to benefit highly from View Transitions

Same with any no-JavaScript-by-default framework like Eleventy, Jekyll, Hugo, and whatnot.

Check out what Maxi Ferreira did with Astro:


Although he had to slap in SPA navigation to make it work, because the current API only supports that, not normal “multi page” transitions. Once the View Transitions API gets MPA support, this (probably) going to get way easier.

My guess is that it’s actually going to get so easy — just a few lines of CSS to start — that it’s going to be a distinct advantage for non-SPAs. Non-SPAs will have more interesting page transitions easier. Zero-JavaScript-by-Default frameworks are already pretty hot and they are standing to get much hotter.
