2019 was the year of ReactJS but will its reign continue in 2020? Certainly!
Though Vue rose to popularity in 2019, React did not manage to lose its charm among the developers. Going by the opinion of the developers in State of JS report, 64.8% of the developers had used React and would love to use it again.
Even in Google Trends, React has been trending among the developers the past year and the margin from the other two raging frameworks- Vue and Angular, has been quite high.
React 16.8 would allow the users to use the features of React without actually writing a separate class. Companies would be hiring ReactJS developers with knowledge of this latest trend to get advance-grade and more tech-backed app.
Generally, state management is considered to be dumping everything in the Redux global repository. But this notion has come to change in recent times. React version 16.3.0 has come up with a new feature called React Context API that would apparently replace Redux for state management.
In a nutshell, 2020 would be more about using state management for at the functional components level and not at the global application store level.
The battle between React and Angular has been a constant one. Angular lost its top spot to React in 2015 and has not been able to gain its rule back in the front-end development domain. The recent AngularConnect 2019 event witnessed the launch of Angular 9, an update that seeks to ensure the availability of Angular Ivy Compiler to all apps. Here are some of the features of Angular that are still loved by developers.
The application performance at loading time, which suffered from large bundle files and hence the app, would be fixed with Angular 9
Angular Ivy would change the Angular game by altering how the apps are actually created. It would allow different polyfills to be created but only the required polyfills to be loaded for reduced load time.
Angular 8 Ivy missed out on the selector-less directives as base classes that was earlier present in ViewEngine. Angular 9 would empower the developers with this functionality.
Angular 9 Ivy would also enable internalization for standard code generation for the translators.
The systems or platforms in question here are supported by the modern browsers. In fact, the projects that are developed using these systems have the right amount of auxiliary codes using VDOM. 2020 would be the years when custom-built elements would be used to create new HTML tags that could easily be used anyway, whether with the framework or without it.
Another trend that businesses can benefit from in 2020 is the escalating popularity of Bit. This is one of the most popular platforms today and its use would increase in 2020. It is a great tool that enables developers to separate their components from the frameworks or the project and use the same components, with a bit of tweaks or as it is, in other projects as well.
