Hey Dev Community! 👋
A while back, I created a poll on IndieHackers where I asked developers What front-end framework they 💗.
And it sure turned out great 👏
Over night there was 100s of votes coming in and now that things have settled down, I've gotten over 300 🤩
At the time of writing this, the results are:
Shall we discuss more about these results?
So... let's state the obvious. React won the poll by a mile 🤷♂️
Below are what some users said about React ⬇
I recently picked up React and it has been a delight. Have you ever tried a framework/language and found it just "clicked" with you? That's been my experience with React.
I personally like React for its simplicity, component system and JSX of course. I remember from the old PHP days where you could write PHP code within HTML and it's kinda taking me back
Great stuff overall. Very deserving of the top vote. 👏
VueJS is super easy to learn and setup. All you need to develop with it is a CDN and an HTML file. I've tried Vue before and it was so simple to learn.
A comment with over 18 upvotes by @reader says:
Vue, easy to start with and even easier to maintain your code base.
With that amount of upvotes, it's obviously no lie that Vue is quick to learn and use in development.
The vote that took third place was "other". With 11% percent of the votes, that brings the total for "other" to 36 votes. I honestly was expecting this. There are many other great frameworks/libraries to use for developing apps and websites. I just couldn't cram them all into one poll 😅.
Some of the top ones were:
- Stimulus JS
- And yes... some said Vanilla JS so I guess we'll make that count as "other" 😂
Now that you've read this and seen the results for yourself, I want to know your favorite Frontend framework. (So does the rest of us 😉)
