re: Why You Shouldn't Use A Web Framework VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Brilliant post! I never wanted to admit it, but I can't stand frameworks. I guess I didn't want to face that fact because I've wasted so much of my life learning them and convincing others that I knew what I was doing.

I'm keen to reboot and go back to the fundamentals. I really like modern JavaScript, but I certainly don't feel the need to have 20k+ Node modules sitting in a folder before I've added a single line of my own code.

Eject Webpack, don't eject Webpack, JSX, dependency conflicts, broken libraries, Git security warnings, IDE plugin squigglies...to hell with it all I say (as well).

Rebooting certainly won't be easy, but at least the rehashed knowledge will stay with me and I won't feel like a fork getting lost in a plate of spaghetti.

Well that's the right emotion!

Me too! The browser is almost a joy to work with when you use a modern API.

Frameworks as Multi-level Marketing... well, now that's a thought...

Good luck!
