Always hard to say whether they take. I like to wait a bit and see how the community responds, ever since I made the mistake of learning Prototype before switching to jQuery :)
Electrode at first glance looks more like a replacement for Meteor than your standard React app. Meteor, however, is simpler to learn and use. But for a "generic app", does it matter what you use? The only reason I can see an app needing a framework at all is because it has requirements that the framework is particularly suited for. Otherwise, you're adding complexity for no reason and no benefit.
The frameworks that get me excited are things like Firebase, which have the potential to remove complexity by offloading hard things like databases, authentication, and backends to a third party. These are things that most apps use, and most developers spend significant time on. Frameworks that are simply a more complex way to code the same thing "but now with MVC!" are much less exciting.
