Angular is still developed. Last years performance improvements (Ivy engine) causes build time to be fast and comparable to React. Also interactiveness is comparable to React.
Angular enters 2022 year as a strong framework that proves its value for people who like to focus on design and user experience rather than handling technical issues introduced by complicated sets of libraries that form frameworks around React.
While React development is also ongoing and enables developers to hotwire amazing projects, Angular holds to the mission of being stable, predictable framework that you can learn once and transfer the knowledge to every project.
Year 2022 is for Angular deciding. Vue - a in between tries to buy programmers keyboards. Svelte is another library around. But the real competitor for Angular is Ember. The only framework that provides similar level of coding comfort.
Eventually 2022 will be a year of serious decisions. Will Angular be removed to replace or with intensively marketed React? Will developers working earlier with jQuery or React, Vue, Svelte put their horses on well thought through framework that helps to focus on user experience?
Will developers support Angular by adjusting libraries accordingly? Aside from technical discussions, and decisions, 2022 fate depends more on trends, just like fashion is dependant.
One is sure, Angular is here to stay supporting developers and users in in proving and having state of art experience.
