The JS toolback hell
My personal bet is that things like elm will win the race, because with its embrace of functional programming it seems like it opens the door to interpretation with yet-to-be-written faster and more direct compilers (rather than transpiling to js). But that's just a hunch.
In the while, front-end craft is now a wizard arcane art. It can't be acquired by pure reasoning and logic, or reading a doc. You need the map of the landscape for knowing the possible choices and alternative intermediary solutions. For part-time front-end people, it's just hell. For now.
