Discussion on: The Cost of Investing Too Heavily in a JavaScript Framework

Stencil and lit-html are not "libraries". A "library" is not a compiler. Libraries and frameworks are different.

You make it sound like "learning" a framework is a binary thing--you either learn it or you don't. In reality, becoming acquainted with a framework is an ongoing affair, almost always related to the framework I am using in my work, and the deeper I go the more productive I become. It is not realistic to assume that most developers can actively pursue multiple frameworks; they will have one "main" framework, and their knowledge of other frameworks will be limited to what the read in blogs or toy projects.

So what exactly is it you are saying again?
