What’s Expected from React, Angular, and Vue in 2017

2016 was a full year for JavaScript, as the language and its frameworks marched forward. 2017 will likely be similar, with many exciting changes in store.

The framework with the most momentum growth is vue.js. In 2016, creator Evan You started working on it full-time and released version 2.0 in September. The community often speaks of Vue as a down-to-earth alternative to the status quo of JavaScript frameworks.

For 2017, You hopes the momentum continues and laid out plans for the new year, including better testing and improving the developer experience. Vue is also working on native rendering solution and is now the JavaScript runtime for Alibaba’s weex mobile cross-platform framework.

Browser-based React was relatively quiet in 2016. Version 15.0 was released in April, the only such major upgrade, though there were consistent minor updates throughout the year. In 2017, we’ll start to hear more about React Fiber, which is described as an “ongoing reimplementation of React’s core algorithm”. Dan Abramov says that “there is still quite a bit of work to do”, but that it should land in version 16.0 or 17.0 of React.

Much of the React team’s work is on getting Fiber out the door in 2017, but it’s a significant change. Fiber is a “complete rewrite of React”, although the goal is to “maintain backwards compatibility wherever possible”. Once Fiber is in place, Facebook hopes to enable “web apps with 60 fps and animations”.
