Do most websites are made with font-end frameworks?

Do most websites are made with font-end framework such as: Bootstrap, Foundations and etc? is there any websites that doesn't use one?

The reason that I ask is, I am not good in web design, I totally suck without using one. And, I want to focus more in back-end development.

But I want want to learn more on Angular, React or other front-end javascript framework. I more inclined in the Behavior Layer..

I think if you can make a freelance business or team project work then, by all means, go for it. But there is a LOT to be said for knowing how to code a good looking website with HTML and CSS. If you can't do that at the moment, that's okay! You will be learning new things throughout your working life as a designer, developer.

Personally, I understand where you're coming from where you say you don't think you can cut it in design (I mean that in the best possible way, at this point in time.... just so you don't misunderstand). Boot strap is wonderful for quickly building websites and interfaces. There's a "Bootstrap" for a lot of things out there.

I think of "Create React App" as a kind of Bootstrap for React applications. If you're not sure how to get started, C.R.A will give you something to build on.

What I would say is if you want to learn how to really get the best of HTML and CSS... and with it Bootstrap.... there's a lot of great courses available on Treehouse to help you along the way!

Would it be a good Idea to learn Angular or React before diving deeper to the Back-end? i.e. Express mongoDB Node.js.

kinda interesting with the front-end javascript framework, but I am not sure which one to start first, back-end javascript before front-end javascript for the other way around.
