TypeScript is not only the technology that has registered the second highest sustained growth — it is also among the least disliked technologies. Find out more about TypeScript’s growing popularity here.
React is still the dominant player here, but Vue is making big gains on the back of Angular’s diminishing popularity.
What’s interesting is that a lot of respondents are not using any front-end frameworks. Also, Vue.js has managed to outshine Angular 2 (not Angular 1 though!) and, according to this chart, 12.000 respondents are willing to give it a try so next year it might actually be the runner-up or, who knows, even become No.1.
When it comes to state management tools, REST API is the undisputed leader, followed by Redux and Firebase. What’s impressive about GraphQL is that 14.000 respondents would give it a try, which means that the results might look different next year.
We talked about Meteor in the beginning (since it is at the top of Stack Overflow’s ‘sustained growth’ list) but now it’s time to welcome it back into the conversation. Although it is quite well-known, it hasn’t managed to impress a lot of people. This time, it occupied the third position after Koa, the runner-up, and Express, the back-end framework which gathered a lot of thumbs-ups from respondents.
The survey also includes results from the testing landscape, CSS, and styling, build tools, mobile and more. Check out the survey here.
