Choosing the right JS frameworks for 2019
Developers have a huge collection of sources from which they gather news and information from, including podcasts, blogs, and twitter, youtube videos. Every time there’s a new update, the first place developers go to is these sources. When developers consider using a framework in projects, how frequently a certain framework is used is put into consideration. The most popular frameworks are recommended, as they are the frameworks that are the best maintained, the most well documented, and receive the most support from the community.
React still on top
The most suitable frameworks to use are the ones which are most popular. These might not be the best frameworks, but these are the ones that receive the most support, through constant maintenance, proper documentation, and support from the community of developers.
GraphQL on the rise
For fulfilling queries and manipulation of APIs, REST has always been the dominant API design architectures. But recent data shows that GraphQL is catching up. GraphQL is on the rise as it contains a strongly typed schema opposed to hundreds of REST endpoints. First published in 2015, GraphQL has seen an uptick in use recently, which is why it is recommended that developers learn it to stay on track with the latest trends. You have to keep in mind that GraphQL and its ecosystem is still quite young compared to REST, so it would be unwise to use it as a complete replacement for REST.
