Q1 2021 State Of JavaScript Libraries and Tools: Frameworks

2020-04-21 Update: Added Security information from Snyk. Made ThoughtWorks Technology Radar values clickable.

2020-04-20 Update: I’ve published reports for other categories as well and recommend checking them out: State Management Libraries, Testing Frameworks, Build Tools and Module Bundlers, Static Sites Generators (JAMStack), and End-to-End Testing Frameworks.

Intro

The first quarter of 2021 is already behind us and I thought why not to delight the public with the results of how JavaScript libraries performed in Q1 2021.

I used Moiva to collect all the interesting data and presented it in a table as well as in charts.

This is the first report I have prepared and it covers JavaScript Frameworks. I’m going to prepare a few more similar reports dedicated to other categories - State Management libraries, CSS Frameworks, End-to-End Testing Libraries, Node.js frameworks, Build Tools and Bundlers, Testing Frameworks and Static Site Generators.

Data Sources

Data for the report came from:

Metrics

Awards

Report

Hint: scroll horizontally to see values for all the frameworks.

Each frameworks has two links - Moiva and GitHub links. Use Moiva link to see more data about a particular framework, to see historical data and trends.
