re: Am I the only person think useEffect is cool but hard to read? people who new to Reactjs will really confuse with the setup since "useEffect" does...
 

functional component is not as organized as a class component
Giving the power of state is great, but ppl(lots of programmers) usually abuse it

what if your component has react.memo + useEffect + useState inside and outside a function? really a pain in the ass to a new react programmer.
Will definitely lower the intention of ppl learning react

 

I kind of agree with you Mark. I think hooks are really powerful, which makes them easy to abuse. An 'experienced' React programmer can make components unnecessarily complex just to be 'smart'.

And like you say, that would be a huge pain for beginners. The class structure is much easier to read in that sense. But having used React for a bit longer now, I do appreciate what hooks allow you to do. You really feel more in charge of your components and logic.

I guess with great power comes great responsibility :)
