We can keep debating if you want.

  1. You said it was modified JS and it sounded like you were referring to the output. Thank you for clarifying.

  2. I never claimed react had to use JSX. Calm down. We are all friends here.

Yeah the mapping is a issue. I don’t disagree with that statement. Though I have rarely found a real need for it to map back.

There’s no heat here 😅

Sorry it came off like that. I think I have a tendency to sound a bit combative when I respond to other comments.

As far as JSX goes, you said that react parses jsx, but it doesn’t. All of that work happens at build time by other tools. That’s all I was trying to get at.

And the 1:1 mapping is not usually for the day to day work of application developers, but may be important for tooling developers and those trying to understand the inner workings of their tools.
