I will die on the hill that front-end work is a horrible mess, and I can't deal with its senseless complexities anymore

So I spent some time this morning, yet again, going through the motions of a react stack, then Vue. Both felt too big, the amount of code I'd write was far bigger than the perceived benefits

Then there's (wrapped) webpack, the test stack, bundling and minifying, sometimes transpilation... Half of these tools will be replaced in two years or so. Some already are outdated, but I wanted to cut off time by going to tools I'm already familiar with


Long story short, I scrapped everything. Going with good old server side rendering. Should it need an SPA, it can be added later. I feel so much productive now
