Which is why I'm no fan of GARBAGE like React when it comes to web deployment. (IF I were to use it, it would only be for native crapplets)
As the saying goes:
Good scripting should enhance an already working page, NOT be the only means of providing base functionality.
To that end though, if your page relies on some scripttardery to load before the user can 'interact' with content then you have ZERO damned business making websites! That's why even as SSR "React" is incompetent asshat BULLSHIT!
Which also means that if you are in a environment like healthcare, insurance, banking, government, and so forth, your scripttardery will also land your ass in COURT! See the US ADA and UK EQA laws, as well as most contracts in those industries demanding WCAG compliance.
.... and one of the biggest aspects of WCAG compliance is having pages work WITHOUT scripting client side!!!
Then the scripting junkies have the unmitigated gall to claim their bloated slow loading train wreck improves the user experience? BULLCOOKIES!
