Discussion on: Really, why React?

I've certainly done this (many times, and with other frameworks as well), but it doesn't have to be this way. I feel quite comfortable with my most recent react applications. They're enterprise sized, but organised well enough, and loosely coupled enough from react, that I can look back at code I wrote a year ago, and confidentially understand what is going on.

It is possible. But like all programming, it is too easy to develop bad habits, or let things get out of control.

Of course we don't know if the Facebook devs added this documentation in order to empathise with users that fall into these traps. Or maybe even the geniuses at Facebook get I bad habits too!
