A terrific talk by Adrian Holovaty. I really hope front-end developers talk its message to heart.

Ben makes the very good point that template literals allow you to do a lot of useful stuff that previously would’ve required a library:
Template Literals afford a lot of power with no library overhead. I will definitely continue to use them when complexity of handlebars or similar is overkill.
Chris made a similar observation a little while back. Throw in a little script like lit-html and now you’ve got DOM-diffing too. You might not need insert-current-framework-name after all.
Kinda cool that these mini-libraries exist that do useful things for us, so when situations arise that we want a feature that a big library has, but don’t want to use the whole big library, we got smaller options.
