re: Hallelujah for number 2. Tell it to Silicon Valley VCs 😂 What do you mean by middleware frameworks?
 

I wish they'd listen to me!

By middleware frameworks I mean things like React, Vue, etc, that are a javascript/front-end interface for the backend; they definitely have a lot of great uses but I think there's starting to be this idea that you have to have one when most sites don't, actually.

Yeah I agree! I just wrote this comment about classic web apps with server rendered templates:

I see them often ignored in the context of new web apps.

It's like people don't even try anymore, they go straight to SPAs even if they don't really need to...

Even some articles about web development in general tend to set SPAs as a given and "older" MPAs as a deprecated alternative.

I think it goes in the same direction as yours...
