Yes, I do love to have the best framework or language being used for a purpose, software or application. But, mixing everything up like C++ for performance of services, C# for simplicity with networking, DirectX for graphics and so on and so forth, is never a good choice.

I do use a programming language and intermix a few frameworks or write my own if I think I may be leaving the context. To solve this, I usually select the programming language in the beginning, then I stick to it. Each language has millions of users, take it as C++, C#, Java or whatever new language may be going on (no Python, that I don't have faith in*, so is the case of Swift). The same thing happens, every frameworks or library tool has already been written. Try to Google for a while, you will find one, if not, then read Wikipedia's guide and write your own library, oh yeah, don't forget to write an article on CodeProject about your success. Smile | :)

Newtonsoft.Json is one of those frameworks, when I am writing an application, I only download and deploy this one package, otherwise I try to write my own modules or .NET has it built-in; Oops, I didn't mean .NET-only!

*Swift as far as I have used it, once, executes in the global scope, and well there was no need of main function. What kind of retarded person would believe Swift is programming language? Apple has many cards up their sleeves, I'm telling ya!
