Discussion on: CSS in JS - have we done something wrong?

I think that CSS in JS is almost always the wrong answer to a question nobody really asked.

Yes, we've lost something.

The one exception to this, that I find great pleasure in using, is the approach used by Next.JS: styled-jsx. It is basically scoped style tags in the context of React components. It supports everything that you would expect from CSS as well: media queries, etc.

Most JS frameworks are going back to the days where we put php and html together and a file with everything mixed up! So it was natural that they wanted to put the css in there ...

Speaking as a web developer who likes to guarantee access for everyone, I think that processing styles with js is a waste of performance, battery and time!
