I noted Trey Huffine’s 2018 version of this article in The Great Divide.
HTML is evolving at an even slower pace. Occasionally, something will feel new. I got excited about
The two most exciting HTML things to me: native lazy loading and no-jank fluid image loading.
But back to Trey’s post, the highlights are:
React is huge. jQuery isn’t falling.
Hooks was a huge release and change for React, and React is generally pushing fast on lots of big stuff.
TypeScript continues to grow.
Vue 3 is a long time coming and a bit controversial.
Svelte 3 is a small player but has lots of interest.
Angular 9 is almost here and has a strong base.
Flutter is challenging React Native for cross-platform development, an impressive feat since there are so many more React devs than Dart devs.
JAMstack, PWAs, GraphQL, and CSS-in-JS are all growing in usage and developer sentiment.
VS Code is dominant.
Trey also picked out some really great blog posts and presentations from the year at the end, so don’t miss those!
If you dig predictions, then you might be interested in Sean Goresht’s big one for 2020.
