Helpful or just crutches?

These files give us a chance to test the products before we buy them.
Many of the themes and plugins are too complicated to use straight away.
There is a lot of learning involved at the beginning!
I am realizing that instead of relying on these crutches, it might be better to learn basic html, css, javascript!

What do you think?

No, I wouldn't.

If you are building these sites at scale, let's say your client wants to update the content on the site... Are you going to do it for them? What if you have 20 clients? See where I'm going? There's a reason why CMSs were created.

Also you only referred to front end languages there. Unless you're making purely static sites, it's only half the equation. Also what flavour of javascript you going to learn? What are you going to learn it for? Internally we use variants of node, but our goal is to create a modular headless platform.

Basically, what I'm getting at is web technologies will keep evolving. Yes they have a base in some other language usually, but, with things moving so quickly, you either adapt or die. I mean, my nephew, who is like a freshman, knows about as much about html and css as I did in university, now. I know I'm going to get overtaken, I'm just paddling like crazy to make sure that isn't soon.
