Discussion on: I've never used a JS framework and my JS skills are - at best - mediocre. Should I try to learn Vue or React?

If you work on mostly CMS systems(excluding headless ones) and archaic Server Side Rendering type of applications, then probably don't bother.

But you foresee yourself building server-client decoupled applications, and you want the server agnostic of the consuming client, then probably it makes more sense to use a JS framework to maintain the front end. Frameworks make repeatative tasks easy, and it also becomes easier to maintain the UI in the longer run.

Ultimately, its not a application design question, its a architecture pattern question.
