I dont even look at start count. You use the right framework for you.

Vue is quick and easy to setup, which probably leads to it being in more hobby projects. More installs means more people interacting with the repo, leading to more stars.

React/Angular take a bit more time, but are used heavily in production environments now. Once its set up, developers aren't going to the git repo frequently at all, therefore less stars despite heavy use.

Its pointless looking at star count without looking at the context surrounding it. Use what you like or need to use ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Yeah, beginners will undoubtedly search for something like โ€œReact vs Vue - which one is the best?โ€ and decide based on the opinions they happen to find on the first page of Google.

Picking a library/framework feels like investing in a long-term non-liquid property at times and it appears as if thereโ€™s no turning back once youโ€™ve chosen one.

And this is exacerbated further by some developers demonstrating partisan behaviours and constantly engage in framework wars rather than telling beginners to focus on the fundamentals, choose either of the framework, and get things done.

Cool, Your insight is really perceptive ๐Ÿน
Yes, actually webdev community and internet world having above downside and dilemma.

One of the things I can do as a webdev is to get along with people in other communities and don't criticize specific tool etc..

That's a little things though, thank you so much !๐Ÿ˜†

No worries, just sharing my opinions.

Thereโ€™s value in criticism but most of us (including myself) are not good and not objective enough at giving one.

And thanks for writing this post. I appreciate the discussion that emerges from it.
