Paradigms vs Ecosystems

React may be superior in ecosystem, or with feature coverage, but not so as a paradigm. These are three different concerns you should bear in mind when choosing a library/framework. You may need the ecosystem or some specific features, so paradigm may not be important. In other cases, you want to choose the library/framework with the most ergonomic paradigm. That means a good signal-to-noise ratio: each line of code contributes to delivering features, each line of code is “semantic” and reads like a specification. In short, the closer the code is to a description of “what I want the program to do”, the better. But the more manual wiring there is, the more “noise” is added to your code, and the more verbose it gets.
