Great article but… I was part of a team building a large scale application using React plus Redux…

I would agree with u.

React is great, but NOT react-ecosystem! Tons of things and “hacks” to learn.

I’m working to “downgrade” my shiny SPA back to boring and simple sever side rendering. And, “surprisingly”, it just works perfectly, 100% deterministically WITHOUT any client side libraries! :))

For complex UI interaction, huh? I may freely use jquery for animation, backbone for notification panel, angular-1 for comment panel, angular-2+ for like button, react + redux for dislike button if I want! How if some of those technologies defeated on battle and die tmr? I don’t fucking care! Anyway, just a small javascript call apply to a <div>, I can change it easily.

Like what you read? Give Hao Tang a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
