This is quite a matter of opinion, but there are my two cents:
- I think Thymeleaf is easier to understand than JSP because it is more natural, but EVERY Java web developer usually has learnt JSP before, so there is no much point at comparing the learning curve.
- If you are a web developer with experience in any MVC framework, learning Thymeleaf syntax is trivial, it could be done in one or two days.
- Maybe the more difficult item is Spring Expression Language, but this language is common to some Spring services, is not specific to Thymeleaf.
