Which Javascript frameworks will rule in 2019?

In this article, we will review and analyze the 2018 State of JavaScript report to later focus attention on frameworks that will be at the center of attention in 2019.

Let's take some time to look at the amazing journey of JavaScript, reflected in the use of more than 20,000 developers from all over the world.


The state of JS is basically an annual report of everything JavaScript records and beautifully visualizes the opinions of developers who take the survey to show insights that indicate the state of JavaScript in that year.

The metrics cover frontEnd web development frameworks, databases, state management, frameworks relationships, reception and ease of use, JavaScript languages, mobile frameworks, tools for building, JavaScript testing tools and much more.

It's a very detailed JavaScript survey that Sacha Greif and some other assistants started in 2016 and now has more than 20,000 developers ' reactions in the latest edition.

Yes, the state of JS is clearly the first universally respected JavaScript-only developer survey for the JavaScript community. There are many other quite widely popular studies, such as the Stackoverflow Developer Survey with more than 100,000 participants and Jetbrain's State of Developer Ecosystem Report with more than 6,000 respondents, but today we will focus on the state of the Js survey.

Frontend Development Frameworks

This is the the the the age of the the the component, not just in the frontEnd. Here we will examine the most demanding frontend development frameworks in the order of most relevant factors such as happiness, interest, ease of use and access.

1. React

React is a declarative, efficient and flexible JavaScript library for the creation of Facebook's user interfaces with more than 110,000 points on github. It is really very relatively painless to create interactive user interfaces, component-centric applications are really actively encouraged here, and backward compatibility is also taken seriously here, so that you can be sure of durability.

You can built a new react application by using create-react-app toolchain, this is the most popular one out yet. To get started, run these in the project folder terminal:

npm create-react-app my-app
cd my-app
npm start

2. Vue

Vue js, developed on GitHub by Evan You and 234 + community enthusiasts with more than 121,000 stars, is a very progressive framework for creating user interfaces. It consists of an accessible core library focusing only on the view layer and a supporting library ecosystem that helps you tackle the complexity of large single-page applications.

Vue has completely closed this year's marketing gap and practically every developer have heard about View. This has been made possible by the great investment made by Evan and his team since 2017 in organizing and attending meetings and conferences.

There is also a clear knowledge gap, however, and more learning resources should be made available for view js by 2019. To start building a view app, install view npm as follows:

npm install vue

3. Angular

Angular is a platform that makes it easy to build apps. Angular combines declarative templates, dependency injection tools and integrated good practices to solve challenges in development. Angular enables developers to build web, mobile or desktop-based applications.

For newbies, it has the most useful cli tool to start easily, there is even a GUI client called a console.

To install the CLI using npm, open a terminal/console window and enter the following command:

npm install -g @angular/cli


Part 2: Data layer Frameworks

1. Redux

Redux helps you write applications that are consistent, run in client, server and native environments and easy to test. You can use Redux with React or any other libraries.

We can see a similar trend in brand value like Vue, almost every JavaScript developer know Redux (also due to complaints about complexity...)

To install it, enter this line of command:

npm install — save redux

2. GraphQL

GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data.

It provides a comprehensive and easily understood description of the data in your API, enabling customers to ask exactly what they need and nothing else, making it easier over time to develop APIs and enabling powerful developer tools.

To install GraphQL, use npm:

npm install graphql

3. Apollo

The Apollo GraphQL platform is a GraphQL implementation that helps you manage cloud data to your user interface. It can be adopted incrementally and can be layered across your existing services, including REST APIs and databases. In addition to the developer tooling, Apollo includes two open-source libraries for the client and server, which provide everything you need to confidently run a graphic API in production.

To install, use npm:

// installing the preset package
npm install apollo-boost graphql-tag graphql --save
// installing each piece independently
npm install apollo-client apollo-cache-inmemory apollo-link-http graphql-tag graphql --save

Part 3: Backend Frameworks

1. Express

Express is a fast, minimalist web framework for node. To install, use npm:

npm install express — save

2. Next js

Even though sufficient data were not available to visualize growth over the years, Next has had a pretty good year of adoption and is the backend framework most in demand after express.

To install, use npm:

npm install --save next react react-dom

3. Koa

Koa is a new web framework designed to be a tinier, more expressive and more efficient foundation for web applications and APIs. By using async functions, Koa allows you to ditch callbacks and greatly increase error-handling.

To install, use npm:

npm install koa


We've seen the most demanding JavaScript frameworks that will dominate the next year's developer space. If you are a newbie, it becomes even more important for tutors and content creators to see where even more resources are needed and to cope with the gaps.
