re: Front End: Is Anything Getting Better? VIEW POST


I think we've reached peak todo, but that's kind of beside the point IMO - but in more complex examples I think we are entering a period where frameworks and platform APIs are really starting to mature and come into their own. Service Workers are not uncommon these days, making it easier to enable offline functionality on a wide range of devices. Frameworks are still evolving - React Hooks and that Vue 3.0 RFC come to mind - but in a way that guarantees backwards compatibility. I think library writers have learned a lot from the mess that was Angular 2, and that's definitely a good thing. And we seem to have settled on virtual DOM based frameworks for the long run, which adds some further stability to what I think has been a pretty chaotic ecosystem just a few years ago. So I'd say that web development is getting easier for the more serious use case.
