Those tools did not evolve naturally, out of ingenuity or necessity
Isn't that what you just described? They started as one thing, and turned into another because of growing needs?

I'm a bit late to the party regarding the discussion recently had with the popularity of Mithril. I just wanted to add that I feel as if the exposure behind other Frameworks like Vue come from its inclusion in larger backend projects, I mean if we go back far enough, Vue's popularity is largely owed to it being included in the Laravel PHP Framework imo.
For me, it's always a battle because as a freelancer and contracted developer you see companies always wanting to use the "latest" trending tech, this means they request Vue, React or Angular and this really does irritate me because 90% of the time these frameworks are just an overkill for the use case presented.
I'd love to see Mithril gain the respect and positioning it deserves. In the last 12 months I've turned down well paid contracts because senior developers didn't want to "risk" using Mithril on the front-end and this absolutely blew my mind.
I'd love to see Mithril being shipped with the Phoenix Framework (elixir) or other more rising stars of the development world, I believe if this was to happen then we would see that shift in popularity happen fast.
Sometimes I feel simplicity is harder to sell than complexity.
If you don't trust yourself to understand the problem domain, somebody else throwing 400 APIs at you and saying "trust me, I've done the legwork so you don't have to" sounds awesome.
Preach! – I feel larger companies wanting to lock in clients practice this approach and when a freelancer comes along and says, "dude, what the fuck is this?" that scares these bigger companies and lead devs who are so deeply invested in this "one way" approach. The masses tend to control the way tech evolves. It's a cruel world we live in. a cruel, cruel world.
"What if it's the name?"
Maybe. I don't think many people are aware that the name "mithril" comes from Tolkien, I for one had no idea until i was a month deep in the framework.
I work mostly with fashion brands and have had my fair share of experience with startups seeking catchy names. The most important aspect to take from the name is the 2 syllable pronunciation. Two syllable names are the preferred approach to take if you want a name that will stick. Mithril ticks that box but its definition may be a deterrent. Not too sure, would be good to get actual feedback on it.

but the spinning cube should be smooth on just about anything unless something is very wrong
TBH wouldn't be too surprised. Basically the only apps these kind of things support reasonably are video-on-demand things, and that basically just requires them to implement a decent H.264 & MP4 decoder in practice
