Here would be things I would list specific to front-end. Obviously these are just my opinion

Trending up:

  • Progressive Web Apps
  • Vue.js

Plateau (not fading but not maybe peaked):

  • TypeScript
  • WebPack

Trending down:

  • Angular

I know some will take issue with my trending down on Angular. I don't think it is going away by any means - lots of large enterprises especially rely on it - and it remains a huge community. But I do think we people are being drawn away by frameworks like Vue, that brought along an audience that wasn't comfortable with the idea of switching to React.
