Wow. That's really an epic post. I really like the way we used to do things in React, but today is frustrating the amount of "bullshit" you have to do to create a "pure React app", that's sucks.

Thanks Adam to write something honest and realistic about React ecosystem.

Thank you for the feedback! As you can tell from some of the other comments, some people are definitely not in agreement... But I'm fully aware that some people truly like all the ways that React has changed/evolved over time. I still truly love React - but I'm not always a fan(boy) of every new way that the current code morphs.

You're welcome Adam. I see how this post generated rants. That was the biggest reason why I left Twitter and stoped to following some "ReactJS rockstars" (it was too bullshit to me). Sometimes I get myself thinking when development became a religion and not a technical working, dogmatism took place over pragmatism, people do things because they "believe" is better, and because their "shepherds" said it was better, not because are really better.

Keep up the good work.
