Hmmm... I was thinking about looking into React just because everyone says it's so great, but this is making me think otherwise. Looking at the syntax I must agree with the author -- it looks pretty magical, in a bad way.

The author was going for maximum humor but makes a good point.

React is like democracy: It's better than most of the alternatives but that doesn't make it great. 

I hate to admit it, but I have kind of given up on the idea of handcrafted UIs :(  People are so used to the look and feel of pre-packaged toolkits that they reject anything that doesn't obviously look like it was made with one.
