Discussion on: How do you decide if a feature/API is safe to use in production?

I'm not in the JS world - But for native frameworks, the following questions must be answered yes, or have a good reason why not

  • Are regular updates happening?
  • Was the last commit within the last month or two? (IE: Isn't abandoned yet)
  • Are enough people using it for the contributors to WANT to keep up with it?
  • Is it going to save you work?

If going to production - we're a little more picky on the frameworks we use. We'll use more streamline stuff.
