No, you got it right. As I've said hundreds of times the past decade and a half the stuff I see done with JS frameworks usually falls into one of three categories.
1) things that would be as much or even less code without the framework. NOT counting the size of said framework's runtime against said sizes.
2) things HTML and CSS can do without any JS in the first damned place.
3) stuff that has zero blasted business on a website if you give a damn about usability, accessibility, maintainability, clarity, etc, etc, etc.
They are not "easier" or "better" and every single statement about these idiotic frameworks is -- as I've said and will keep saying -- is a BALD FACED LIE!
