An amazingly comprehensive survey on what's cool and what's not.

Here is the Table of Contents for the Results

Take a look through all the sections in the above, but if you are in a rush, most PW folks would probably be most interested in the frontend frameworks section: http://stateofjs.com/2016/frontend/

Hi Adrian,

I also saw this, I was a little surprised CoffeeScript was as dead as it was, maybe I need to get into ES6.

I got forced into using CS on an app project last year - in some ways I kinda liked it, but didn't see any huge advantages or time savings. I also didn't really like that it wasn't a standard - I'd rather go with more official options like ES6/7 or whatever we end up with. I am sure you know, but BabelJS let's you use these syntaxes now.

Yeah I guess I've always liked using it as it's such a natural (at least to me) syntax, it just looks so clean.

But you have to be able to know plain JS for sure and the definite trend is that way it must be said.

Indeed!

My favorite: “...just wait for it, we are going to do assembly in the web in a year or two."

I just can't wait :P
