How to learn to navigate in the zoo of plugins and modules in the web (for jQuery and various CMS)?

Good day)

IMHO, one of the more unpleasant features of modern programming in comparison with 90-mi is a huge zoo of all kinds of plugins, modules and extensions to all what can. When on the web sometimes need not so much code to write, how much to suffer with the choice of plugin. How to learn how to properly and quickly navigate around the wild diversity of this "happiness" to jQuery, Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal? It is clear that all the plug-ins is impossible to know in contrast to programming languages :)

How do You find a way out of this difficulty?

Never in all my time I have had the task of "competently and quickly Orient themselves in all possible plug-ins". When you come to the supermarket, you have the same input does not break the paralysis that a great number of products it sold. You know what I came for and go straight to the correct shelf, but already there choose from twenty varieties of milk that is suitable for your specific requirements.
Meaning that, in principle, to learn JQuery/Wordpress to the level of earning 20-30 thousand a month does not have to know hundreds of plugins? - lewis_Harber commented on July 8th 19 at 16:03
: Not necessarily, just get yourself bookmarked daddy and sort it plugins you are using , and as needed just look there in the future! - Tyriqu commented on July 8th 19 at 16:06

A good developer no zoo CMS he's writing to one or two. He wrote also one or two languages ( PHP + JS for example ).
About the plugins, everything is simple - have a dozen other periodically use plugins for everything else, there's mast... Google.
Good) I have now realized (see above in comments) that I must have with customers crooked work lined up that I Full Stack + anykey all time comes when a customer I is delayed. - lewis_Harber commented on July 8th 19 at 16:05
So it is necessary to dance probably first of all need narrowly to specialize optimally and not from the needs of those customers who need a handyman. - Tyriqu commented on July 8th 19 at 16:08
I don't know about you, but I have the lion's share of the task "do this here, then there, then to fart, then that whistled". Well, after you choose the method of implementation. - lewis_Harber commented on July 8th 19 at 16:11
Ie You have within the specialization of several types of CMS (e.g., Drupal, Joomla, WP) and Full Stack? (I can't choose "method of implementation", as working with ready-made sites from the "recolor and splice"), but not from scratch). - lewis_Harber commented on July 8th 19 at 16:14

And to know ALL programming languages quickly and competently to navigate your way perhaps?
And it often happens that for a specific task easier and faster to write your own code than spending time looking for third-party plugins and integrations.
And, you can quickly find something about suitable for the task and used as a sample.
The diversity now is - good! Although, of course, greatly reduces the threshold of entering the profession.
By the way, from experience there is no need, even in folders with collections.
And your moaning like "well, that's why so many books have been written, that in the year there was one book on the village and the headman in the chest on the padlock locked."
Then it turns out that is necessary as-that itself is my approach to freelancing to rebuild, not to run from any delayed I have more than 1 client on a Full Stack and zoo CMS. But in the Russian segment generally whether there is "homogeneous case" of freelancing (to steadily sit within say Wordpress+PHP+JS), or better to the Western market to navigate (which is scary because porridge in the head because I have done some web anitem the last 3 years)? - lewis_Harber commented on July 8th 19 at 16:07
