I'm a developer who has tried AngularJS, Angular, React, Vue, and Aurelia. So far, Aurelia is the most powerful, elegant, intuitive, and enjoyable framework to develop with. In this, I'll share with you a few reasons why I think you should do yourself a favor and try it out.
<require from="./path/to/element"></require>. Adding a new route is exactly the same. There is no vDOM in Aurelia. Binding between elements, attributes, either one way or two way, is a simple command away. It works directly and intuitively with the DOM objects you know and love. Since there is no vDOM, adding a third party plugin to your application is a dead simple task.
Ever wanted to learn about Dependency Injection (DI) but felt put off because there are only a few places around to use it, and none seems to offer something simple that can help you get that "click" moment? Not the case with Aurelia DI, a statement
While learning Aurelia, you will learn how to return to JS, return to yourself, and progress to the next important thing in your learning: Your career. You will learn how nice it is to have a framework that does not fuss about whatever you want to do, or even two-way data binding. Everything links together exactly how you would expect. Experiencing this will give you the "just work" mental model, and will help you build the next awesome thing that everyone may depend upon.
