Discussion on: What tech-stack do you use for your portfolio?

hahaha Good luck! the more you learn the less it costs.

By the way all the steps I covered are meant to be on any project, doesn't matter if you use a framework or not (you'll need to learn that framework first moreover), in fact I cover framework usage on the post, while I explain I used my own mini-framework that uses FlexBox for the "grid system" and css-only components for adding interactivity. On this point you can use whatever you like but before using a framework or lib, search first for alternatives. If you gonna use bootstrap, may be better to use Mustard UI instead, which is much less heavy weight and covers all habitual needs for a project around that dimensions (for example).

Apart from that cache is not job of a front-end framework and you can write some rules (server level) for the resources and getting it rid on 2minutes without issues with some rules. Browser compatibility is something you need experience to handle properly but here's an advice: Safari is the new Internet Explorer. It means if you code for safari, it will work well (better) on all other browsers without exception.
You don't need a mac for that, only check what you are insecure to on caniuse site and check compatibility.

Also note that mobile friendly and SEO optimizations are things that UI frameworks doesn't work with. In fact a weight point on that two are the overall site weight and load times, which using a framework (let's say about 1Mb with 400 classes of which you only use 50) is the reverse that what you want to get.
About responsiveness... it's something easy to internalize, just try it for a week :)

A nice quote - the more you learn, the less it costs and certainly valid too. Hope you won't mind if I use it in my bio:-D

Will checkout MustardUI. Never used it before.

My point of view was mostly around frameworks for the end to end work, not just UI. And it seems your points are mostly concerned about the UI frameworks. I get your point now.
