Using React really sucks. I was going to try making an incremental game with React, but I can't do it with React.
create-react-app is inconfigurable until I eject, then it doesn't know my purposes, instead instating an inconfigurable "standard style" that is dumb.
I can't use a boilerplate. I don't need to install a hundred packages and link a thousand dependencies to do something that could be done in just a few lines of HTML, CSS and JavaScript without React. (Oh, and package.json.)

React is a library that's meant to create reactive web apps, not to supplement the same goal that's actually done by hundreds of packages.
This needs to stop. Now.

suddenly, the name Gitter makes sense :ghost::
What if you can't/don't want to log in using GitHub or Twitter but still want to chat on Gitter?
grahamperrin @grahamperrin wonders whether this is gitting or geeting.
