re: What is that one tool/stack/framework that you have no interest with despite the popularity? VIEW POST


React. I generally just don't like JavaScript, but if I'm going to use it I'd prefer either Vue or just vanilla. I can't get past the overwhelming hurdles of everything needed (webpack, redux, es6, etc.) to become even slightly productive with it. And the community trying to turn literally everything into React just seems like an abuse of React from outside looking in.


If you just want to try it out, create-react-app can save you from all the setup trouble. It's really great for a quick prototype or a small app, but obviously a much in-depth customizable setup may be good instead for production (or you can just eject them). Or maybe if there's someone here actually running a large-scale production app with create-react-app before, I would love to learn from your experience.
