I actually agree with the article in some aspects.

if the project scope is small to medium: stick with basics: JS/CSS easier to maintain over the years/developers.
if the project gets to be large to stupid big: frameworks do help out in at least keeping things organized. but are a super pain when updating to a new(er) version. (if possible, we still have a Angular 1 project that no one wants to touch in fear of it breaking)

I was surprised the article mentioned Handlebars.js, since it's not much of a framework and more of a lightweight approach to making html partials with some customizing if needed. I feel like this belongs also in the medium range of projects, help keep you organized but not get in your way of development. technically it's a backend server side renderer, but it's also easy to build a front end version of the same thing, takes about a day to build most of the features.

where I work we have technically 3 types of projects:
* basic html5/JS/CSS -when no DB is needed
* ASP.Net core/JS/bootstrap -when DB access is required
* React/bootstrap.

The first two I enjoy working in, the projects are quick and fun, the last takes way more time to work out the features and layouts, and just feels heavy in final implementation.
