I have heard that Redux has quite a high learning curve, would you consider Vuex to have a similarly high learning curve? Advanced state management seems like a very, very useful thing to learn to use!

That sounds like extremely good advice! As of right now, I consider myself new enough that I should try out a bunch of tools to see what I like the feel of. React is kind of like my first toe-dip into the giant pool that is front-end engineering.

I really appreciate you sharing your thoughts and advice! There really is no substitute for talking to people about things they know; Google or no Google. Best of luck to you as well!

I've never used Redux, but Vuex wasn't extremely hard to pick up. It changed a lot with the newest version of Vue and can even be in Typescript now. Depending on how much you code, it would probably take you a couple weeks to get a hang of, but months before you're really using it properly 😉

I saw this and thought you'd be interested. This is how I feel when I see React.

That post is awesome, thanks for sharing! I just read the first bit but I already agree with it.
I can definitely sympathize with React looking like:
One big mess
Hey some HTML

One of my biggest problems with React so far is that it really does feel like I'm serving up a hot plate of spaghetti code. If there is a different framework that helps keeps code easier to look at, I'm all in. Since I'm delaying my next project a bit, I think I definitely will look into using Vue for it. Thanks again for the perspective! :)
