Take a look at the React Ecosystem in 2018

On January 3rd, 2018, Laurie Voss, co-founder and COO, npm, Inc. released an important post of  The State of  JavaScript Frameworks. On that post, which I believe was got from a careful analysis of the JavaScript front-end frameworks, it was found that React, a front-end framework introduced in March of 2013 by Facebook,  has been adopted very rapidly. After the post of JS frameworks, the second post was the React Ecosystem published on January 9th, 2018.

The post is a concise summary of the third-party packages that related to React in one way or the other. “While Facebook builds React itself, many of these packages are from third parties within the open source community. These packages use React and supplement it with additional functionality to provide a full application experience. Several of them compete with each other to provide similar functionality.”

Packages analysed

The packages include:

  • React Router
  • ReduX
  • RxJS
  • MobX
  • Apollo
  • Relay
  • Flux and
  • Preact

You can see that from the graph above. The post went ahead to give a short and understandable overview of every package in the React Ecosystem. Also in the post are enough graphs to help you understand the ecosystem as supposed.

Feel free to read the full post on npm’s own website at The React Ecosystem
