Should I use React? A language that I have used for work everyday for this past few years?
But being the only developer for this project, I decided that separating the Front End and Back End would only add to the effort and complexity. One that I did not needed at this time.
That lives me with only 1 option. Using the Phoenix template render. Or specifically, Phoenix LiveView.
I know it can handle real time interaction but I am more interested in the complexity side. Is it easier and faster than using a Front End framework?
After building my project, I can say yes. It is faster and easier than using a Front End framework. Provided that you are the only developer for the project. How much faster? I built the prototype of my website in 3 days. I think if I were to built it with React, it would take more than a week.
