Here’s what we have jotted down:
This won’t change this year as well because developers and business leaders love to use React.js for future-proof front-end development. Features like component-based servers, concurrent mode, and hooks make this tool very convenient to use, and hence, we will see extensive ReactJS usage and optimization in 2022.
Furthermore, React had the most npm package downloads in 2021, 4 times more than its biggest competitor Vue.js.
For its extensive capabilities, Node.js had been enjoying steady growth in download and installation rates, with a spike in October 2021.
Node.js is the best choice for high-functioning and complicated projects like streaming apps, real-time apps, and microservices-based apps, etc. The community constantly tries to improve this tool with open contributions. All these aspects make Node.js development one of the top JS trends that’s likely to continue in 2022 and beyond.
- Increased performance with 50% faster write and 260% faster read in ref implementation
- Typescript implementation
- Layered modules and large-scale project support
Currently, there are 3,491,140 websites using Vue around the world. Here are its usage statistics:
GraphQL is a query language created by Facebook to enhance the data cell performance of their app. It allows developers to query data from both the back-end and front-end with a flexible syntax. Other exciting features include fast data retrieval, request customization, efficient query, and so on.
In 2020, developers wanted to learn more about this framework with the highest interest ratio of 86%. And in terms of satisfaction, GraphQL is now at the top, leaving Redux behind:
- 48.9% of respondents have been using Dynamic Imports to load a module on-demand or condition:
- 26.1% of developers have been using Proxies to create a proxy for another object and redefine/intercept critical operations for it.
- 20.4% of respondents have been using Private Fields to implement JS language features.
- 67.2% of them have been using Nullish Coalescing as a logical operator to manage right and left-hand side operands.
- 21.6% of developers have been using WebGL to execute 2D and 3D rendering in a browser HTML canvas.
- 22.5% of them have been using Web Audio API to control audio on the web.
- 45.7% of respondents have been using Service Workers to create the offline user experience.
Jamstack is a modern web development architecture that allows developers to create secure and fast websites and web apps with many efficient libraries and tools. According to the 2021 Jamstack Community Survey, 32% developers were working on websites that would serve millions of users:
The testing libraries and tools with most respondents’ interest are Jest, Mocha, Storybook, and Jasmine. Jest is at the front of the pack as expected since it’s a part of the bootstrapping tool of React – the most popular cross-platform framework.
At the second position reigns Mocha, which can be a viable alternative to Jest. Jasmine continues to decline as it’s the default testing tool for Angular.
Another more user-oriented testing tool is Testing Library which developers are now preferring to test React components.
In terms of mobile app development, React Native completely dominates the market. In every category, it won with native apps and went down to the enduring popularity of the React framework, that’s here to say.
The similarities between React vs React Native enable developers to seamlessly build mobile apps. It’s also cheaper and easier for organizations to create both web and mobile apps at the same time.
For all these reasons, we can predict that React Native is going to have a bigger market takeover. And with its support for macOS and Windows, we can assume that it can 100% outperform Electron.
