‘State of JavaScript 2018’ Survey Announced

“The JavaScript world could use a bit of classification,” reads this year’s announcement at StateofJS.com:
In 2017 this survey helped us do just that, by collecting data from over 20,000 developers to identify current and upcoming trends. This year, we’re asking for your help once more to find out which libraries developers want to learn next, which have the best satisfaction ratings, and much more.

The survey launched in 2016 “mostly to scratch my own itch,” its founder explained in a Medium essay. “I wanted to know what libraries were worth learning, and which ones were on the way out.” Last year’s survey discovered that React was the dominant framework, though the second most-popular framework was “none,” with 9,493 JavaScript developers saying they didn’t use one. Vue had increased in popularity while Angular lost steam, and developers collectively rating their overall happiness with front-end tools at 3.8 (on a scale up to five).
And more than 28% of the survey’s respondent’s said they’d used TypeScript, Microsoft’s typed superset of JavaScript, and that they’d use it again.
