So yeah it is back again
and many comments on hacker news
I don't really want to comment too much but imho things got worse.
So here some quick comments on a couple of charts
9K+ users would not want to work with plain JS (ES5) ever again
I mean yeah it was "worth it" to kill ES4 to achieve such results
People can criticise all they want Flash and ActionScript 3, but
at least since 2006 we can use the language "as is", no need to add
a framework or a cross-compiler on top to make it bearable.
Front-end Frameworks – Results
5.7K+ users would not want to reuse Backbone again
9K+ users would not want to reuse Angular1 again
5K+ users would not want to "not use a framework" again
4,9K+ users are not aware they can build app without a framework (LOL)
What I see is even if you use a JS framework, to help you, you probably end up hating it after some time
but at the same time "not using a framework" is not an option ...
Sorry but not sorry, I still don't see JS as "production ready".
What do I mean by "production ready"
when you pick the HTML5/CSS/JS stack
- the language and API itself should be enough to build an app
(eg. MVP: Minimum Viable Product)
- a single dev (or small team) getting started not having a brain fuck
with the 500 frameworks/toolkits/tools combinaison
- picking a framework to dev "app XYZ"
not biting you back in the ass 6 months later
- it should work as advertised, eg. in this case JS should work everywhere right?
except it work mainly for the latest browsers if not only Chrome
