The layers of the Web
Those 3 technologies are many years old and they have been transformed over and over to satisfy the historically important needs (and continue to do it today).
Many of the features that were useful in the past, are now likely an annoyance or uncomfortable to work with and maintain with good quality.
That’s why there are so many tools that “ease” the work with the browser-native languages.
Every framework compiles to one or many of the triad:
- ReactJS makes repeatable components so you don’t have to manually manage JS in states with logic and helps you to stay DRY.
- Sass is a preprocessor that converts special
.cssfiles, so you can use more advanced techniques like variables, mixins, functions, and more. Special note: CSS got upgraded and now supports some of the features that Sass brought to the table a while ago
