Ask HN: Why is there no Django/Rails equivalent in JavaScript world?
by bluewalt on Hacker News.
To be more specific, some exists, for example Sails (MVC architecture), Nest (gathering best tools and providing an architecture to use them together), or Blitz (Full stack React). …But why none of them are getting a real traction while node.js is popular for many years now? Does people in the JS world usually prefer picking and connecting tools themselves?
While I admit this philosophy can have benefits in some cases, it has true and obvious downsides too IMO. I mean, in Python, you are able to chose your philosophy by picking up Django (all batteries included) or Flask (pick and connect tools of your choice). Both framework are kind of equally popular. But I have the feeling if you decide to pick JS/TS language (a good reason could be: you build a SPA and want to use only same language for back and front), the only viable option is the “pick and connect tools of your choice” philosophy. I’m wondering why this is NOT a problem for most of developers I talk to. I think some of them has never deal with full featured framework like Django and don’t get all the benefits. But it can’t be the only explanation.
