I'm seeing many people claiming React is bad and comparing to other frameworks like Vue, Svelte or even VanillaJS (LOL). My opinions on this war:
React is a library where you integrate different things . So bundle size gonna increase for sure. But you also get the good functionality.
Well , React is slow ! everybody knows it. But there are things which can be done to make the overall performance faster. Lazy, Purging , Compressing. Pure HTML is still the fastest and will be forever.
This really makes me laugh . It's like comparing two people by their height not by their skills. Oh ! He is only 4 feet so our office will have more space for others. Nah! He is too tall for our office . LOL!!! The difference is not quite that large to be worried about in the code length of different frameworks.
You know! It's still an open source project. Doesn't really matter if it's backed by a Tech Giant or a single person. It's a tool given to the whole community to use it.
You'll end up using React once in your lifetime unless you change your career . So stop comparing and start using what you are comfortable with.
