What's your most used JavaScript framework?

Most of the web developers tend to use JavaScript frameworks rather than using vanilla JavaScript. So, what's the one JavaScript framework you have got hooked into, what's your most used JavaScript framework and what made you stick to it?

For me, the framework is React, it's the framework I started with initially and then eventually moved on to Next.js, I have used react in most of my projects and now I'm trying out Vue.js.

NextJs and using SvelteKit for lighter projects. I use Next because it’s been the most usable and complete production level react framework for a while now. Although I am considering trying out Remix. SvelteKit is pretty nice to work with for smaller projects due to the svelte syntax… but I don’t want to use it for large production apps at its current state.

I'm thinking of learning sveltekit too once I get better in vuejs :)
I prefer using nextjs for my larger projects too 🀝

Angular. I learned Angular on the job while working as a backend developer because I was interested in UI development (I was leaning React) and the company didn't have a UI developer on staff but they needed someone to make something using Angular. This opened the door to me UI development career.

Having Angular on my resume has kinda pigeonholed me in to only getting jobs that use Angular. I've been thinking about finding a cool open source project that uses React (or maybe Vue) so I can contribute and put it on my resume.

I've used React and Vue to build side projects, and recently made a new portfolio using Gatsby. You can check it out here.

That's a lot of framework knowledge! I really like the minimal look of your portfolio ❀

I've tried them all but I think if I was forced to choose I would probably land on React. I really like JSX (I actually hated it at first) and how composable it is. The api surface is small enough and hooks allow for building some really nice libraries and abstractions.

I learned reactjs first, then when I heard about vuejs I was hooked up with how easy it is to use and manipulate. Until now I am using VueJS on my Jobs/work and personal projects.

Yes, same here though I use both react/next and vuejs depending on what I want to achieve in the project and which will make the process easier.

The more I use, the more I captured by ReactJS. React is now a must-have in my toolkit.

Try using NextJS, it's react but packed with more features, I haven't used create-react-app even once after I transitioned to next πŸ˜€

Thanks for recommending NextJs. I used it a couple of days ago, and it is super cool. I am currently working on React Apps that will integrate with WordPress.

I have not much more idea about NextJs Apps integration in WordPress. Please recommend some stuff related to WordPress and NextJS.

I appreciate any help you can provide.

React and Next.js are my most used. Third would probably be Vue.

Do you also use Rails and Hotwire? I heard that Stimulus is perfect complement for Hotwire.

My most favorite: JQuery, JQuery UI.

I was actually going to explore JQuery after using vanilla javascript for months but instead I switched to react and got hooked on to it πŸ˜…
