My project would die if I use an existing framework, due them all being based on a component approach that leads to data and event limitations. I favor an approach where logic and state are extracted and more loosely coupled. IMO, data-flow and control along with state machines are a better way to go.

Slowly but surely I have considered and vetoed to bypass the popular frameworks and instead build the framework my app requires. This strategy is looking good and it is now clear that I am engineering a new way to build apps. These days JS is great and RxJS is wonderful and template solutions like lit-html are perfect.
