soo true. I’ve found this movement couple weeks ago — people are tired because of something called js-fatigue and started to publish more and more articles about more ‘traditional’ way of front-end development (e.g. this article on HN: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12956059).
To be honest, I’m very into it — I still don’t find a SPA framework that would suit me well so.. I decided to create my own one (yeah, that sounds like a xkcd comic about standards: https://xkcd.com/927/ ;) ) and have total freedom and uber-knowledge how to develop things without unnecessary dependencies and (of course if I want) that supports jQuery plugins whenever I want to :)
