It should be no surprise that React will not outlive our careers. WebComponents are simply providing the ability to create composite elements AFAIK. I tried it back in 2012 and it was too soon to switch to it. I amost subscribed to polymer and thankfully it wasn’t ready for prime time.
People are still using jQuery even though browsers support those features natively. Yes, even jQuery will succumb to the advent of the web. It is our job to stay up to date. When the time comes, React developers will adapt. The library is still evolving as it is. Facebook developers will think this through.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
