Although its original release dates back to 1995, as its platforms and libraries have grown so has its popularity. In terms of dynamic and global web development, no one doubts that the JS universe continues ruling.
ReactJS will continue doing its thing
Despite the fact that Vue gained ground last year, ReactJS remains the developer’s favorite: 64% of them have used it and indicate that they will gladly continue using it. The margin over its closest competing frameworks, Vue and Angular, is huge.
React was created by Facebook, and is here to stay. It is not by chance that many successful platforms such as WhatsApp, Netflix, Airbnb and the NY Times have taken it as their own: it is the perfect user interface design library for making cross-platform applications and responsive single-page apps.
Other new advantages are seen in its new modes: concurrent and suspense. Thanks to them, the applications created with React will respond better representing trees without blocking the threads. Thanks to React 16.8, you won’t even need to write a separate class to use these features.
So this year companies are going to hire ReactJS developers to create advanced and more technology-backed applications. It is time to study, then.
Betting on state management
So the trend this year is to manage status at the functional component level and not at the global storage level of applications.
Angular in second, but stable
Although it lost its position in 2015 to React’s popularity, Angular is still one of the front-end development leaders in JScript.
Its Angular 9 update seeks to ensure that the Angular Ivy Compiler is available to all applications, because many developers still love it.
Another addition is the functionality of using selector-less directives as base classes (not in Angular 8), and internalizes standard code generation for translators.
Isolate framework components and make them independent
This seeks to make systems more compatible with modern browsers. Projects working on them are using VDOM. Using custom-built elements to create new HTML tags, independently reusable with or without framework seems to be a trend this year.
For the above reason, the popularity of this tool is constantly increasing, and in 2020 it is predicted that it will win the hearts of more developers. Thanks to it, the components of the frames or projects can be separated and reused, either with a little adjustment or as they are.
Within dedicated teams of a company, the code for these components can be quickly used by members of any project. Thus, they can be enriched and synchronized in an agile and expeditious way for their future use.
