Following on from last months report on new app framework popularity (from ClickStarts) - I thought I would give an update:
Overall - not a huge change - other than Play2 increasing its gain over everything else, and EE6 shrinking. The “long tail” of other frameworks is still there, however growing (mostly at EE6’s expense, it would seem) - and some frameworks jumping up and down a bit.
It will be interesting to see this over the year - as we are introducing new things all the time - expect to see new things appear. I can see from the last week or 2 that the AngularJS one has shot up - it is a very recent addition (and quite a newly popular framework). Play also had a recently release (2.1) so I would expect to see that in a bump next month.
- Play2: ↑↑
- EE6: ↓
- Node.js: ↑
- AngularJS: ↑↑↑
It is important to note that this represents not apps started via ClickStarts - not what is running on the platform (so, potentially a leading indicator).
