Keeping up with new JS frameworks is like keeping up with celebrity gossip. It really isn't useful on it's own but you can talk to other people about it and be perceived as woke.

    Totally agree, I picked Angular and my plans are to stick with it till the very end. I'm very open minded about these things but my philosophy is to pick a framework you can profit from the most.

    @ymas and then they decide to rewrite the whole thing.

    @ymas How is Angular? I've used JS only for academic purposes, I didn't bother with any frameworks. I'll be needing to learn a good front end framework soon.

    @norman70688 I'm *loving* the new angular. I'll admit it was a lot easier for me to upgrade as I didn't have a management team to convince and I had as much time as I needed to learn typescript and reactivex so my transition was quite enjoyable (I'm solo). I can't recommend upgrading enough. Going through the source code of Angular is so much easier than AngularJS too.

    @D-cyde I don't recommend frameworks because everyone has different requirements and let's say I'm quite patient and I don't have managers hovering over my head. My requirement was to find a JS framework that helps me write enterprise applications in the most reusable way possible. Angular and Angular Material fit the bill *very* well for me. Your use cases may be different. It's like buying a car, you're not gonna buy a Rimac Concept 2 as a daily drive for example. Find the framework that helps you get your work done quickest and stick with it. Use the one at the correct abstraction level for your needs. I develop lots of solutions involving sensors that emit metric tonnes of data, rxjs is very helpful. If you want something quick then Angular is prolly not for you.

    @ymas My use case will most probably be ranging from building a web app to making a site for products to just a simple blog. I was under the impression that Angular is in demand and since I'm an undergrad right now I'm gonna be doing a lot of freelance work so that's why I thought Angular would be it. What would you recommend?

    @D-cyde all the js frameworks are "in demand", all of them have teams using them. The only thing I can recommend is to develop a simple to-do application in all the frameworks you are considering and choose the one that you like the most. It's hard to make recommendations because the suitability of a framework depends on factors that only you can make a judgement call on. My recommendation is to try as many as you can.

    @D-cyde couldn't disagree more. Learning and understanding how each framework tackles a problem is useful.

    Unless you're the "let's re-invent the wheel for 4 zillionth time, cause mine will definitely be better" type, then well yes, it's useless, but sadly so are you.

    @ymas Thanks for you insight. I'll keep that in mind.

    @Commodore Well I guess I'll find out when I get into JS. Until then I'll crack a few jokes to pass the time.
