There’s a lot of discussion these days about people loving their hammer (ie. React) so much that they treat every problem (ie. Netflix) as a nail. Now, I haven’t built a Netflix clone, but I am curious about your opinion since you have.

Do you think React was the right tool for the job? Why or why not?

Hmm couldve done with Vue as well. What I love about React is the Phisolophy of reusable components. So, I think for a SPA it's the right tool. The problem of no framework, in my opinion is that HTML doesn't have a way to reuse code (or doest it?). Also, the two way binding, router, testing tools of the create-react-app save a lot of time. Id use a vanilla solution for a extremely simple page.
