I haven't tried react hooks yet but I don't think it's a good idea. simplicity is better than complexity. Introducing a second way of doing something only makes it harder to decide which way to go. I think having one standard way of doing something is better than 2, let alone the increase in the library size. I never had any issues with the class components, in fact, it's much easier to pick up. These frameworks never standardize they keep on changing, for no good reason. I think I'm going to either switch to Polymer because it's very small and simple or leave web dev completely. What do you suggest?
