I feel like the pendulum on js frameworks may be trending towards simplicity. I see lots of devs complaining about complicated frameworks. Maybe it will trend to less js loaded solutions and maybe a return to simpler pages.

I dunno, one can hope right?

I don't do web development, but I see a lot of people that do and they all sounds like chain smokers and alcoholics. Something has to give.

    Well. There is just good website design and bad design. Some dynamic Good sites require frameworks though.

    They should just get less bloated and increase the ease of the viewing experience

    The general issue is that web tech is not sound engineering because that would involve asking "do I really need it" in the first place. That needs to change.

    You got me.. I am a smoking, drinking, about-complexity complaining webdev. Empowers me to work on the simplest NodeJS static site generator with the least amount of client-side JS: *shameless plug*: https://metalsmith.io

    Not really, no push for simplicity. If anything, the most popular frameworks today do a lot more than classic web frameworks. There is a trend towards output standardization - web components, HTML forms, etc - and there is a trend towards abstraction - Svelte for example analyses your code to figure out dependencies for reactivity.
