The web developer Michael Rambeau has been determining which frameworks and tools are particularly popular with JavaScript developers since 2016.

The number of stars that frameworks, editors or other JavaScript tools have received on GitHub serves as the data basis.

Vue.js is the most popular JavaScript project on GitHub for the fourth time in a row. React, which was still in second place in 2018, must now be satisfied with third place behind Visual Studio Code. Vue Element Admin, a front-end solution for admin interfaces, has grown significantly. The project soared from ninth place in 2018 to fourth place. However, Svelte is the climber of the year: the fifth place was not even in the top 50 of the most yesterday’s JavaScript projects on GitHub the year before.
