Discussion on: You don’t need React for building websites

It is refreshing that you take a stance and for someone like me, I need to be reminded sometimes that you can create cool stuff without any frameworks. However, isn't the point that for webpages, you can surely do it with vanilla Javascript, CSS and HTML. But a lot of jobs where they need React frontend developers are for large webapps. I would say that these days React isn't necessarily enough. I see TypeScript mentioned A LOT here in Denmark, and Vue is almost just as popular as React around here...
