Discussion on: Having Trouble Learning ReactJS??

For me there's only one metric - I can make awesome websites without any framework. When I have to use frameworks I can't make anything. It's like you had an awesome game, like football or basketball but at some point someone decided you shouldn't play with a ball but with a fish. I'm sure someone somewhere can find a metric that says kicking a fish around is more efficient in some way maybe perhaps but it isn't the same game anymore. The industry creates its own workforce deficiency. You cannot make a system less complex than what the minimum complexity is but they sure are able to make the required skillset to do the job more broad. These people never take one step back and look at the horrific mess they created. My impression is that people who can make react work for them are people who never really cared about their work anyways. Everything they always made was meh, good enough, or "that-will-do" but nothing to be proud of.
