Comment (by westonruter):

 I just released [https://github.com/xwp/wp-js-widgets JS Widgets] v0.2.0
 which includes JS-driven adaptations of all the core widgets (aside from
 Links), as well as a Post Collection bonus widget. Another standalone
 widget plugin called [https://github.com/xwp/wp-next-recent-posts-widget
 Next Recent Posts Widget] takes the concept of JS widgets a step further
 and uses client-side JS templating for rendering the widget as well,
 implementing instant updates to changes. In this widget, selective refresh
 used to obtain `rendered` REST API data, while the `raw` value is used
 until the `rendered` data is returned. So this means that when entering
 `--` into the widget's title will result in `--` appearing in the rendered
 widget while waiting for the server to return with `—` that `wptexturize`
 applies. In this way it behaves similarly to #33738.
