I see a lot of job postings for Rails jobs also mention React. I don't love or hate React. Sometimes I think it's overkill, though. Then there's Redux... and TypeScript... and...
I work at a company with a core Rails app that has a concoction of Backbone, React, then files like RABL, CoffeeScript... it's like a core-sample of the app's history.
Have y'all seen many Rails gigs that are close to "vanilla" rails, sticking to server-side rendering, `html.erb`, or even, perhaps using StimulusJS?
Or do you work at one?
I think people still favor Rails' opinionated framework, even if only using the API/ORM, but it seems the "super complex front-end" is still very appealing to people.
