Summary

I like the this wrap-up statement from Hidde de Vries:
In modern browsers, our markup becomes an accessibility tree that ultimately informs what our interface looks like to assistive technologies. It doesn’t matter as much whether you’ve written this markup:
  • in a .html file
  • in Twig, Handlebars or Nunjucks
  • as the <template> in a Vue Single File Component
  • exported in the JSX of your React component
  • outputted by a weird legacy CMS
It is which markup that determines if your site is pleasurable to experience for AT users. In short: it’s the markup that matters
As a front-end developer, you'll find yourself writing markup in lots of different places with lots of different technologies. I think it behooves you think of how best to write it regardless of where and how.
