Now, nearly four years later do you still feel the same way? I can understand if this was a “for a microservice you don’t need a framework”, but working on most non-trivial modern applications do a lot more than a few simple http responses and maybe some DB queries. For example, keeping database changes up to date, packaging assets (and maybe building/translating them from other sources), complex routes, testing of pages, etc. Admittedly I'm coming from Rails, but this post seems to ignore the cases where a framework Is necessary and focuses on the simple cases where you could easily do without one. Anyway, would appreciate your thoughts.
