Kaffeeklatsch!

I wish that websites would put that sentence right next to their “sign up now!” call to action:

Every project eventually dies, effectively or in practice.

Then, people would be informed about what they’re getting into.

Alas, no! It’s a shame—I really liked that Hack Farm project. 😔

As always, it depends, but I find that for many sites (e.g. publishing sites) a framework would be overkill. Unless complex state management is a requirement, vanilla JavaScript is more than up to the task of sprinkling in interactivity.

None of these are “surely a good thing” if you look at them from the perspective of a user:

Only if you tell people in advance, when they’re signing up to use your product, that this is what’s going to happen.

The mismatch in expectations should definitely not be applauded.
