Legible markup and an open web

“Illegibility comes from complexity without clarity. I believe that the legibility of the source is one of the most important properties of the web. It’s the main thing that keeps the door open to independent, unmediated contributions to the network. If you can write markup, you don’t need Medium or Twitter or Instagram (though they’re nice to have). And the best way to help someone write markup is to make sure they can read markup.”

Everything Easy is Hard Again (Frank Chimero)

With the growing popularity of jamstack it feels like we’re returning to legible markup. Old web applets and iFrame widgets make way for pure Javascript APIs.
