Back-end Frameworks

The back-end space is still very fragmented, but Express stands out as the one dominant tool, while Next.js maintains its high satisfaction ratio.

Satisfaction, interest, usage, and awareness ratio rankings.

Technologies with less than 10% awareness not included. Each ratio is defined as follows:

  • Satisfaction: would use again / (would use again + would not use again)
  • Interest: want to learn / (want to learn + not interested)
  • Usage: (would use again + would not use again) / total
  • Awareness: (total - never heard) / total
We asked members of the JavaScript community to share their “pick of the year”

My 2020 Pick: Remix

Remix is a different approach to React frameworks with an emphasis on progressive enhancement. It embraces the web platform in a way that no existing frameworks do and I'm excited by its potential.

Bar thickness represents the number of respondents aware of a technology.
