OK, so I've been playing with the node/angular stack for a month or so now.

Short version, it reminds me of a solution looking for a problem. I can write clean Javascript with a nice and simple service-oriented layer. With Angular, I'm constantly adding tags to HTML, C&P'ing common imports into every controller class, C&P'ing common DI's into constructors, often I feel like I'm duplicating things at various levels of the "app" just to support the architecture of Angular, basically spending way too much time managing the boilerplate framework code. All this gets in the way of doing actual real work.

And, while it works great for a small project, and while automatic rebuilding and browser page refresh is great when a code file changes, the warts and the slowness of Angular/Typescript builds reveals its ugly head when you have a real project. And the "real" project at work is actually still pretty small.

And then there's the Node version hell -- I had installed the latest version of Node and Angular, but the product doesn't build with Node v.10, throwing some arcane exception in some C++ code (!!!) it has to compile for something in Node, so I had to downgrade to Node v.8, which involved installing the Node Version Manager so I could switch between the two.

The whole thing reminds me of my Ruby on Rails days. Dead | X| But maybe with a only dribble of Dead | X| instead of a full technicolor yawn.

On a positive note, the framework forces you to do things the Angular way, which probably cleans up a lot of the crap Javascript that developers would normally write. So, that's a good thing, IMO.
