Why JavaScript Frameworks

The case for frameworks |

Why React is popular despite bad performance?


  • Not worth it to optimize for poor users
    • Who don't spend much
    • Slow networks & devices

Frameworks decrease dev cost

Increase dev efficiency

  • Someone has already solved your problem with React
  • Communication: all teammates know where to find stuff and how stuff generally works faster
    • similar to something they've seen before
  • Easier to hire people
  • Dev time is more valuable than losing some tough customers
    • Don't have to worry about tough customers that don't pay a lot
    • Sacrifice poorer customers
    • Have to optimize too much

Solution: better frameworks
