This may not be the most sensational topic these days, as front end webdev has largely moved to JS frameworks and/or TypeScript, but I think it's an interesting topic to explore. Why so? The heyday of these kinds of projects seemed to be about a decade ago. I think of this kind of like the same as what Node is, but in reverse.
Why is Node so popular?
So, there's my thoughts on the matter, it'd be nice to hear you have to say as well down in the discussion. See you there!
