I feel u, everyday it feels like a new framework or lib is the thing you have to learn. But as Mark mentioned, you don't have to learn/use it all in fact I don't think anybody can learn it all, Its just to much data out there.
As for parcel as a bundler, I like it! Its webpack with less config are moore speed, More behind the scenes Magic But of your okey with that o would check it out. IMHO webpack itself has a pretty wild learning curve and changes quite a bit and the only reason i learned it is cause its Kinda industry standard.
