JavaScript survey: Devs love a bit of React, but Angular and Cordova declining. And you're not alone... a chunk of pros also feel JS is 'overly complex'

Re: It's not about JavaScript

I'd be quite happy to work on a JS project if it adhered to simple software management standards* and KISS - not found one yet.

* perhaps the Unix idea of "Do one thing and do it well" is all we need..

JS is like any other language - but it seems to have far too many self taught code warriors who can produce a simple flashy interface with all the bells and whistles but none of the organised back end supply lines required to keep it fighting for long.

I think its fair to say legacy C and FORTRAN code is easier to work on - but only because the code warriors who wrote this stuff had experience of keeping the supply lines going - if they hadn't we wouldn't need to keep supporting it as it would have died out long ago,
