Imo JS is special now because it allows easier ways to do data processing on the client instead of the server

— I am writing a CMS, something traditionally serverside, in JS in the browser

— The server is barely a few lines long

— JS hv been doing that since 2013 or so... ES6 and upwards with all those insane tooling isn't helping at all

— I also build all my own tools

— Something devs should be doing

— Yeah the ability to actually build custom frameworks and tools is a skill not often asked for but extremely useful, because it shows an ability to be a key engineer and know how other frameworks function

— Tbh, I still don't know what the heck Gulp and Grunt does... yet I been in the JSsphere for a while now... 100% pure and sane JavaScript

— So I have a motto or principle that says, don't use a tool if you couldn't build it yourself too!

— 😂😂

— And so thats what I do before using any framework, I deconstruct it's basic concepts and roll my own
