For sure it can promote large corp style OOP. Perhaps, and I have no data for this, just my musings, is that Angular promoted this once they adopted TypeScript. DI, classes, decorators etc...

I've been using TypeScript in React and browser extensions and almost never use OOP. The only time I've really used classes in React was for components that required state. Aside from that rarely, and now that hooks are stable and able, function components would be the way to go for new work.

Having said that, OOP is not a bad thing. Just like anything, people can do bad things 😉


I am mostly against OOP, for a number of reasons that would longwinded and off topic. :)

It is unnecessary for most things, so why bother with it?
