If you could only learn one front-end framework, what would it be?

I’m primarily a back-end developer.. but would like to have one general purpose front end framework that I could use for all my personal needs.

What’s a powerful & diverse front-end framework that I can use to build mid-level websites fairly quickly.

Ex) blogs, product/personal/business/non-profit websites?

      Are all of these supposed to be used in conjunction?

      I’d consider NodeJS backend, but generally agree with the stack. I used Angular v1 and then v2 changed everything, so definitely react.

    you can do pretty much everything just with es6 vanilla js.

    All your examples are best served by a CMS, not a frontend framework.

    Do you want to make blogs or apps?

    Angular if you care about solid engineering but find with having no friends. React if you easily cave in to peer pressure

    Yes react as per my opinion. Angular is equally good but i don't like it much.

    I’d use Gatsby, it’s react and has a lot of good defaults built in like client side routing, and SSR so seo for blog like applications is good

  • React is all you need to know. Create-react-app will do all the setup for you (webpack on a node dev server + babel to transpile es6 and jsx). Typescript is optional, I don’t prefer it.

    Angular is another popular one, I’ve used it quite a bit and not a fan
