    I'll be honest - reading this post left me feeling pretty hopeless. The extent of my coding abilities is using FramerJS. I don't know React, and when I look at it, it seems intimidating.

    I often read comments from other designers who seem to just 'get it' when this stuff comes up. I feel lost - and it worries me. Even if I knew React, I still don't fully understand what this new tool does...

      The blog doesn't seem self-explanatory to be honest, though you can go through Hacker News Thread where others have explained it beautifully.

      I'm waiting for the time when there would be such discussions in these threads.

      I wouldn't put too much time into worrying about it, really. React is not a core design skill. It's just one tool, and not necessary for being a successful designer.
