I just read an article here on Medium touting the lack of real cases where you need to choose a front-end framework. The author gives the standard platitudes of not really reusing anything so why bother with Vue, React or Angular? Then he proceeds with this:
The vast majority of projects I work on day-in and day-out use a simple Vanilla JS layer talking to a backend PHP script via AJAX. PHP handles the database operations or heavy business logic and returns what I want to my front end using JSON, and guess what? It works beautifully. — Ryan Nehring, Programming in the Time of Giants
Guess what? You created a framework.
Not that it’s bad that he created a framework, but telling people not to use frameworks but then using a framework only he gets to play with is disingenuous at best.
Don’t write clickbait articles giving people bad advice and be disingenuous in the process.
