History of JavaScript Frameworks

About the Book

There are many frameworks and libraries in the JavaScript ecosystem. Some say we live in the renaissance of JavaScript, an innovative and fast-phased time where old tools continuously get replaced with new tools. A time where we constantly push the limits of our JavaScript applications.

On the other side of the coin, many feel fatigued because the JavaScript ecosystem is massive. In addition, at each corner of GitHub, yet another 10000-star framework that you never heard of awaits you.

But why do we have so many frameworks, and what’s their purpose? To better understand the present, we can look back at the past. This book will take you on a journey from the 90s to the now. In our travels, we’ll encounter many frameworks and libraries. These meetings will increase our knowledge of their patterns, story, use cases, and more.

Our mission is clear. It is to explore the history of JavaScript frameworks.
