Account registration on the homepage of hub.docker.com does not work
without JS.  Is there somewhere else you can register?

Since the page uses React, the form itself is not a standard HTML form:
it form contains no action or URL to post to, so clicking the "Sign Up"
button simply reloads the page (GET /):

  <form class="row" data-reactid=".1xy13jx9bls.">

(With JS enabled, it posts to /v2/users/signup/)

AFAIK, pushing/pulling images and such can be done using the
command-line utility, which requires no proprietary software.  It's
getting to the point where one _can push_ images on Docker Hub (which
requires an account and some upfront work on Docker Hub) that is a

While I have an account for work, I haven't done anything with the
images, so I don't know if e.g. pushing an image that doesn't exist will
create it.  If not, it doesn't appear to be possible to create new
e.g. repositories without JS.

There's no harm done to users looking to download the image.  The harm
is done to users registering accounts to administer them or otherwise
participate on Docker Hub.
