A more recent article seems to reiterate what I mentioned earlier:

“Personally, I advise against using web frameworks in your projects. New developers may find their growth stunted by over reliance on prefab code, while experienced developers are often slower using a framework rather than starting from scratch. To me, the benefits outweigh the costs. In a recent Industry Radio Show live chat, Pedro Carmo (@drocarmo) phrased this reasoning quite eloquently: “I think frontend frameworks disable people’s creativity. It teaches you how to edit code, but not to create code.””
