None of them. Depends on what kind of project you are doing. But it is great to know Javascript better first.

YourMind.js is the superior framework. Plus, it's evergreen. ;)

Vanilla JavaScript.

The biggest problem of development (as a whole, not just front end development) is the existence of frameworks. Most developers, especially freshmen and juniors, donʼt know what they deal with. They think in terms of DOM, bidirectional bindings, and all the like, instead of understanding how the language or the running environment (in this case, browsers) work.

You canʼt effectively harness frameworks if you donʼt understand the fundamentals of your job.

Does someone is going to ask this question every month?

Vanilla JS. Period.

Yup. Because no one seems to employ someone who isn't using one... until you start looking elsewhere. It's a destructive trend, such as a Lean startup (in which the author of the most popular MVP book no longer uses.). lol. Oy vey.

ReactJS is not a Framework, it's a library ;)
