LuCI2 and luci-ng

Why deprecate the luci2, and why the recommended luci-ng has not been updated?

IIRC @jow (at least) felt that luci2 was too much NIH and wanted luci-ng to rely on an existing framework instead of creating another openwrt-specific framework.

luci-ng has not been updated, IMO, because most frameworks are not created with small embedded devices in mind and that results in issues, so things are little stuck on how to move forward (AIUI).

maybe we can crowdfund jow to finish luci2? at this time i think angular is out of fashion already though, vue looks sexy, while react is the winner for now.
