My don't give a shit opinion: AMP and React exist only to make you accept the Good News of multi-billion dollar companies. Neither of them benefit users. They only benefit the companies and those who buy into the propaganda.

I can see the benefits React has brought to the web. It has had an impact on the progression of state management, data flow and recently rendering management to avoid jank. But I never understood AMP. The ideas behind it could have simply been educational resources. Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

Do you feel the same way about Vue, Angular, Ember, Aurelia, etc? Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

Open source is recruitment for Facebook. They get on stage and say variations of "trust us, we have lots of users and thousands of components". I see that scale as negligence rather than a success story. We need to give sustainable medium/small companies a platform instead. Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

All of this was happening before React ever existed and will continue after the React kiddies get bored and move onto the next big thing. Charlie Don't Surf Wade Dominic Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

I think React is pretty cool (though Elm is even cooler), but it's true that it's only pushed so hard as this benefits Facebook's PR, recruitment, and gives them free labour. AMP on the other hand is total balls which only exists to benefit Google's monopoly. Charlie Don't Surf Stuart Harrison 🌹 Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

It may have been happening but not that well. A clear way to see this is the way Clojurescript applications have been written through its history. There was a small number of jQuery wrappers then React. Only React is wrapped in Cljs land. Post React is still active research. Charlie Don't Surf martin Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

It’s also employee retention for those who get that kind of exposure, but also those inside who contribute. Charlie Don't Surf nick Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

Spicy! I'd definitely like to see more people using react alternatives, but often it's a hard sell to management who asks "why?" and often they've read or heard about something the big four are doing & choose in that direction Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

I have issues with React but tying it to AMP seems pretty brutal. Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf

"HTML is bad, it lets you do arbitrary things. Use AMP. AMP will now let you do arbitrary things." AMP is about replacing open standards with Google standards, nothing more, nothing less. Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf Charlie Don't Surf
