Exactly - frontends have too much magic and are heavy. Stick on WebAssembly (blazor, SignalR, gRPG), CSS (flex boxes), Javascript. If you need, feel free to scarvage other frameworks (e.g. Formantic, Bootstrap, w3.css) and bring the code to you. You want to (really code and control) or (you want to just apply recipes / procedures and be stuck in a framework) ? Saying that, I use scss, jquery lol. Bottom line, I suggest you get proficient in css, html5, javascript, jquery and then you do what you want, but saving time is not always true in the end. web frameworks have their own bugs (plenty). Saying that, I like core a lot lol.
