At the end of the day, it's up to the development team to decide which tool is best for the application we're building, personal preferences aside.

Guiding factors in choosing the tools we use are the type of components they provide, and what these are capable of. For example, a larger web framework may have all the generic components we need. On the other hand, a functional programming utility library might provide a lot of the low-level functionality we need.
