List of Frameworks that could help you start with SPFX

Since the last years the PnP team is creating a very solid and super fast evolutionary SharePoint framework where developers can make their work, a real integration with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Graph, not only SharePoint, a real "stonk" case of growth :).

It's really impressive what everyone involve was able to do at this point, since documentation, videos to code..., i remember the beginning of the PnP concept and follow what Vesa Juvonen was generating on the initial steps, cannot believe the amount of years that already past...

But at this point i see people creating samples for everything and reuse existing frameworks without clear information, for people that is working, this can be very confusing on what is provided by SPFX or what needs to be added, i don't what to talk about the SPFX versioning that another article on how to keep everything on track.

But if you are beginning and can understand in what are you in, this Frameworks could help start you development and response the normal question that you make, where i can add a calendar, can i include a metadata control and all this questions that doesn't have a direct  but external answer. :) 

Here a compilation of some Frameworks that i found very useful, you can use to include in your SharePoint Framework (SPFX) solutions.

Personal thought:
I remember when i was starting (in 1985 copying code from a magazine to my spectrum 128k that generate a game of falling pieces and needed to escape from them. Draw a circle with a line and thinking "i just draw Saturn, how fascinating this is.", more than 30 years and now i am going to internet to find code... some things never change)
