"There's too many front end options!"
"OMG there's this one option that is everywhere!"

All platforms are shitty when you need to use in your job. Because they don't give time for you to learn it and they go for the most popular platform, ignoring if he in-house devs know the technology and the work that others had done (React and Facebook).
PS: I'm one of the guys who thinks the new UI of the Facebook is complete shit. It has too much "blank" space, things that I don't use so much fills 2/3 of my screen, everything is too big and the friend list sorting is shit (Why groups don't appear? Why friends that I talk daily don't appear, but friends that I never talked with appears?)
100110111239338dI’d rather use Angular any day over React. It’s good thing I’m not looking for a front-end/fullstack web dev job rn, since that React bs is everywhere. The redux pattern is just shit. React is just shit. Everyone’s using React cause everyone’s using React - not because it was any better than some other framework. Time to prod - yes - it can be almost as fast working with it as is creating something with Vue, but eh... React is a big fat nope nonetheless
& OP, don’t feel bad for using Nestjs for backend since it’s too much like Angular - that is a good thing, especially if you can take full advantage of rxjs and fastify.
angry-ak7338d@100110111 Thanks. I know you're a tiny minority of people that says this outright and means it.
It's not like I have large history with Angular. I remember my boss sitting me down and asking for a PoC but done in Angular (v.5 back then) "because it looks a bit like Java". I liked it but was always bewildered by the sheer hate Angular gets from people. Online polls like from Stackoverflow make it appear like Angular was forced onto people and ate their offspring. Vue was also fun to work with for a small project I had to do, because the templating reminded me so much of Angular with its directives. It could do so much more than react out of the box. But you don't see too many companies asking for that particular framework, despite its online cred.
And I'm no rxjs guru, but patterns like Observer Pattern are so easily done with it. I love the concept of Observables in general. Together with Dependency Injection, it's legit fun to work with.
100110111239338d@angry-ak I hear you, and I wish everyone who had the power to choose the front-end framework to use heard you too.
We use mostly Vue at our company when it comes to frontends - mostly because NO ONE WANTS TO USE REACT.
As a senior I used to have in my team once said: if it’s small, use Vue, otherwise go with Angular. Never ever use React.
