While we were preparing this issue we encountered a simple but vital question asked on dev.to. What are the latest trends in frontend development nowadays? Making a scope of the most popular open source projects will help us better understand what is going on in the web development world. This time we’ll do a brief analysis of the monthly most popular JS repositories. Chilling time is the best part of the summer, so to get more time for relaxation – read about, explore and use these great tools. They’ll save your time! For example, a mechanism for programmatically making web requests in the browser, diagrams and flowcharts generator, UI kit, React boilerplate, JS storage to improve the offline experience, text-based browser and many more of interesting and useful repositories!
To shed light on the tools that frontend developers are using right now in the industry we made some highlights from Frontend Tooling Survey 2018. The survey was held this March and 5,097 frontend developers took part in it.
