WPTavern: The State of JavaScript 2017 Survey is Now Open

WPTavern: The State of JavaScript 2017 Survey is Now Open

The State of JavaScript 2017 Survey is now open to web professionals of all backgrounds. The intent of the survey is to provide an overview of the rapidly changing landscape of JavaScript frameworks and tools by gauging which technologies are growing in popularity and which ones people are liking and using less.

The survey, created by Sacha Greif and Michael Rambeau, should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Topics include JavaScript frontend and backend tools and frameworks, state management solutions, testing tools, CSS, build tools, mobile and desktop technologies, package managers, text editors, salaries, and more.

Last year’s 89-question survey received more than 9,300 responses. Results showed that React ranked higher than other front-end frameworks in terms of developer satisfaction at 92%, followed closely by Vue.js at 89%.

It will be interesting to see if and how these results change with many open source project and companies growing wary of using React after the Apache Software Foundation’s recent decision to ban Apache PMC members from using any technology licensed with Facebook’s BSD+Patents License. A licensing issue that jeopardizes more companies’ ability to use Facebook’s popular open source technologies could precipitate a decline in React’s preeminence among frontend frameworks.

Sacha Greif reports that the survey has received more than 3,500 responses in less than 24 hours, a remarkable number compared to 9,300 over the course of three weeks last year. This response affirms the value that last year’s results provided to web professionals who are attempting to navigate the ever-expanding JavaScript ecosystem.
