All of the examples you mentioned had their moments (except web components, but it doesn't mean that they are dead, actually they are the "future").

This is a hard question to answer and mainly because the front-end technologies change too fast. Javascript is now continuously evolving, this brings new ideas to people and lets them create new stuff that could become trendy.

It's a common practice to wait a little bit when there is a new trendy lib before implement it or use it in a big project. It's better to wait for the feedback of the community and see if it's actually a good idea to use it.
