Just when it seemed like webpack's dominance had settled the debate, the build tools scene has again exploded with new entrants like Snowpack and esbuild, leading us to give it a full section for the first time since 2017.
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
My 2020 Pick: Volta
Overview of opinions on the technologies surveyed over time.
|Would not use|
|Would use again|
Technologies with only one year of data are not included.
This chart splits positive (“want to learn”, “would use again”) vs negative (“not interested”, “would not use again”) experiences on both sides of a central axis.
Bar thickness represents the number of respondents aware of a technology.
