Data Layer

While the datalayer space is still in constant movement, one thing seems clear: GraphQL and its related technologies are here to stay.

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: Insomnia

Insomnia is an app that allows you to design, test, and deploy API Workflows with a clean, simplified UX- it has both REST and GraphQL support, though clearly the puns are better if you're using REST.

We asked members of the JavaScript community to share their “pick of the year”

Overview of opinions on the technologies surveyed over time.

Would not use
Not interested
Would use again
Never heard

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.
