re: I mostly agree, but some tools deserve to be buried 3 feet deep. For instance, if that’s is about new feature in Rails behemoth, or about new site ...
 

I'd add some nuance here - If you have, for example, a jquery website, and you're making a tweak... then no need to rewrite it.

If you're looking to pick up an old project and add 3 years of dev to it with a large team... then yeah, moving to a framework (I wont say which, depends on the problem) might be a good idea.

Elixir is not a JS framework last time I checked haha. Although I'm sure someones written a JS transpiler, for some reason.

 

{Ruby/Rails, jQ} β†’ {Elixir/Phoenix, Modern Framework}.
