Best JS Frameworks for UK Contractors & The Clients Your Choice Attracts


I'm curious as to what everyone's thoughts are on the most appropriate JS tech stacks to use to be appealing to clients.

For me, as I come from a DotNet background, and the (admittedly somewhat unusual alliance between MS & Google) meant that I started with JS UI frameworks using Angular, and then I've worked my way down the stack to using NodeJs with Firebase Cloud functions.

Between the maturity of NodeJs & the ease of use of Firebase, I'm very keen to get more project work that is less reliant on DotNet and more in this area. However, I want to balance that with using tools that will attract contract work also.  

Personally, for the UI side of things I think that React seems to be the most popular, but what type of clients does it attract?  Corporate, small business or something in between?

I'm wondering what others thoughts are on both the UI frameworks but also the rest of your tech stacks

On A Path To Self Destruction

Here's something I wrote a couple of months ago, before the IR35 private sector postponement. I think it still holds true though.
