Also, use Javascript only if your site needs something that can't be done with HTML5 and CSS.


@strypey Meanwhile, half the companies I'm interviewing with are asking me if I want to work with Angular. Not just Javascript, bloated Javascript!

@attercap tools like #Angular have a place, such an in apps like #Loomio that are deployed in the browser, but too many brochureware websites use JS that doesn't serve the users at all.

@strypey Admittedly, my opinion of Angular was made during the first few iterations. I've been playing around with .Net Core and Angular 9 this past week and it's not bad. Still a larger footprint per dev project than I'd like, but I don't hate it as much.

But, so often, projects jump on to the latest tech buzzword whether they need it or not.

This old webcomic of mine was mostly based on a true story: attercap.net/comic/?e=20071207
