It’s 2022, and it’s that question again which frontend framework to use? Are they maintained, production-ready, good learning curve vs benefit balance and active community? Let’s do a quick recap for the best of the best out there.
I will put React in the number 1. The best of the best, and there are many reasons for that. First, because it has a vast community, simple structure, modular, component-based, and they also care about the world. They are a big supporter of Ukraine and the free world. That’s already alone is something.
Also important to mention that React has Next.js for the backend. Quote from their web —
Next.js gives you the best developer experience with all the features you need for production: hybrid static & server rendering, TypeScript support, smart bundling, route pre-fetching, and more. No config needed.
Honourable mention is also React alternative Preact. They still hold a strong position, but I’m taking it as an alternative and would still go with React. But they have done an outstanding job there https://preactjs.com/. Preact also supports Ukraine.
