Very well said - this pretty much echoes my concerns. The notion that a state container adds complexity is somewhat misguided. It adds overhead and boilerplate - sure, but actually reduces complexity by making the application state transparent and predictable - an invaluable tool when debugging large codebases.
Good point regarding a "blog or small app" too - I have an article describing what happens when trying to build something of "moderate" size without proper state management not so long ago myself: Seriously - do React hooks replace state containers?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
