I agree that React, Webpack, et al. are great improvements compared to their predecessors. But do I really want to start an app in 2016 knowing that there may be even better tools in 2017? Most likely I would use these but what ails me is the thought that I might have to learn yet another tool and migrate. Why does the JavaScript ecosystem move so quickly? I get that browser technology is exciting and constantly improving. But why can't we settle on some well designed concepts and keep them well maintained? I hope React is it because I like it but it really depends on Facebook's commitment.
