re: What was the most over-hyped software movement? VIEW POST


I'd say most JavaScript frameworks, because they seem to go from best to forgotten fast.


jQuery has been there for 13 years and it's still being used today (although a lot of people have moved away)
React has been there for 6 years but only recently started to gain the hype.
Knockout has been there for quiet a while (9 years).

I'd say that good JS frameworks can easily live 10 years. But there is constantly a lot of hype regarding new frameworks because of how easy it is to create a new one. It's like somebody is constantly making and releasing new frameworks.
