is it? python and js is pretty similar as a scripting language yet js gets a lot of flak when you want to use it everywhere.

in my case, it's pretty convenient.

people should just use what they want to use, if they want to use js, then it's fine! :)

Yes, people should use what they want, but that doesn't mean it's always a good idea.

Not every language is the best choice in every case. For example JavaScript is not fast enough in some situations - that's why ffi or wasm exist.

Also using only JavaScript (or any other language) can be contraproductive in sense of developing yourself as a developer - understanding different concepts of different languages and technologies.
