Discussion on: React should become a framework already

This is a very interesting point.
I'm a big fan of C# and the .net framework in general. However, I avoid using Angular on the client side whereas structurally it brings as much, i.e. a complete framework.

On the other hand I use React intensively, but not necessarily with react-router, not with Redux but Shadow-flux, in short with what I need when I need it.

I think that what I like so much about React and its ecosystem is that it is not a Framework, and I don't think it's an interesting evolution. It's this philosophy of not constraining this library to a framework that makes it so popular.

For me it's the nature of the same freedom not to be a framework that's its biggest strength.
