The question was about which *technology* you like/dislike, so nodejs or React are okay choices for that.

This is often a problem for my pet projects: on one hand I'd like to learn something new, but on the other hand I want to just get on with it and make something useful reasonably fast without getting bogged down in a new language.

I find that the older I get, the less patience I have for playing or mucking about with various technologies "for the fun of it". Life's too short, and after you've learned a handful of languages (or "technologies" in general) there are diminishing returns.
