Checking out the framework that is used on on 80% of the web
Looking at the Web Almanac's data on library usage and taking a glance at the Typescript 4.9 Beta
The Web Almanac is an interesting concept of checking out the raw stats of web traffic to help discover trends and patterns out there in the real world.
In their own words:
Our mission is to combine the raw stats and trends of the HTTP Archive with the expertise of the web community. The Web Almanac is a comprehensive report on the state of the web, backed by real data and trusted web experts. The 2022 edition is comprised of 22 chapters spanning aspects of page content, user experience, publishing, and distribution.
The most interesting part to is checking out what are the most used libraries (being that I am primarily working with React these days).
jQuery continues to be the most used out there by a LARGE margin. However, it’s important to note that this is in large part due to jQuery existing on a ton of legacy sites and its heavy use in WordPress.
WordPress accounts for about 35% of sites. So anything that is used in WordPress will automatically make a big chunk of the web.
React remains at a steady 8% but notably, it’s one of the few modern frameworks on the list.
Typescript continues its steadfast growth with a new Beta available for testing. As always there is a ton of little bug changes and performance improvements.
