JavaScript frameworks are what developers use to build web and mobile applications. According to statistics by VisionMobile, BackboneJS was the preferred method used by 50% of the world’s tops brands.

What is even more interesting is that they also stated that this will likely change in the near future.

It seems that AngularJS is about to take over. BackboneJS may have led the way, but AngularJS is the new kid on the block and he is more popular. Popularity rules the Internet – that is a fact!

Angular JS is our favorite too!

Ask any of the developers here at CronJ to name their preferred front-end JavaScript framework—you won’t hear much more than a whisper of anything other than AngularJS of course!

If history repeats itself, AngularJS will eventually be replaced, but for now, it seems it is picking up a great amount of steam. Don’t worry it is so popular it is bound to stay around for quite some time.

Let’s look at the history of popular frameworks to get an idea of just how fast things change.

About five years ago SproutCore was on top of the world. Developers lost interest and it was replaced by Backbone. This shifted slightly when EmberJS  (a revised edition of SproutCore) came along and now it seems everyone is on the AngularJS bandwagon. ReactJS is somewhat new and no one really knows how that will turn out.

Developers are fickle, change is the only thing that ever seems consistent with them, however for some reason AngularJS, just seems different. I suppose it is because it’s familiar.  AngularJS is like wearing an old comfortable pair of shoes and you just can’t beat that.  Simple to learn, interesting to explore = perfect developer recipe.

The thing that really hits it home for people is that we have this idea of a directive. Rather than writing everything inside of JavaScript and then having a bunch of templates to generate the UI, you write a lot of it in HTML and HTML drives the assembly of the application. It’s kind of the reverse thing. It’s very unique. Nobody else has this particular approach. Misko Hevery, creator of Agular

To prove its popularity one only has to look at the number of GitHub contributors that are using the framework to create shareable applications.
