I think they can replace them in a technical sense. I don’t think we’ll see mass migration, refactoring budgets, or dev knowledge growth in that area, without something big happening. Oh the “vanilla framework” is in the hype cycle. And there are future promises hanging out there like react seamlessly solving the pain points around SSR combined with CSR.

I'm hopeful. As the React community sobers up, they will see how the other half has been living for the last 5 years. Sobriety can be hard though, we're here to support you through this difficult but worthwhile change 😁

Respectfully, I think your outlook might be coloured too much by social media.

Web components adoption, as measured in code running on page loads in browsers, is rising steadily.
