Ah fuck it. Here's my thoughts on React - why I've found it and what it represents problematic even before recent events.


"The old Frontend Developer roles, that covered user-focused design and coding, were suddenly forced to crystallize into either Frontend Engineer or Designer/UX roles. "Hybrid" roles were suddenly rare in the 1%." Yup, that's me, bye bye code hello full time design :/

@stephaniewalter Nice article. I've always advocated for simple and efficient applications. React (and it's friends) is just the opposite and keeps burning CPU time for virtually no reason.

What I'm saying: companies using React actually waste resources and therefore promote climate change.

React has become bloated - The Chrome browser of JS frameworks :blobjoy:
