I'm not sure what no-code apps are, but it's not about wether it hurts or not to learn the basics. Every frontend developer needs to learn HTML seriously, even if they want to become "just" a javascript developer. In the end the output is always HTML and this output needs to be accessible. Otherwise you're excluding people.
Writing "it's possible to build a working website without learning HTML properly by using frameworks" is simply wrong, imho. Frameworks don't prevent you from writing wrong, inaccessible HTML.

I really don't want to rant, but I'm afraid that people who start learning how to code read this and then think they can go on without learning HTML.

For the near future your point is strong and true! I still believe in the evolution of building a decent website without caring too much raw html/css behind the scene.
