In 2017 expect...

  • Web Assembly, might just peak.
  • import might just be usable in <script></script>
  • Universal JavaScript solutions will continue to rise that pay homage/respect to the days of server delivered front-ends (i.e. html to the client).
  • Reactive programming continues to thrive in the JavaScript scene. (see MobX and RxJS).
  • React, more so the concept, will dominate. React itself will be completely re-written (see React Fiber) or evolve (see Inferno).
  • Angular found SEMVER so Angular 4 (even 5) is on the roadmap for 2017.
  • A return to simple websites may happen, web 1.0 retro, but with the help of 2017 tools (i.e. static site generation)
  • RESTful JSON APIs will get more competition (see GraphQL)
  • Could be a banner year for Vue.js.
  • More devs will abandon traditional CMS solutions for static site generators & API CMS tools aka Headless CMS's.
  • More people will move from Sass to PostCSS + cssnext.
  • Lots more HTTP2 and HTTPS.
  • Web components will continue to lurk and wait for significant traction by developers that might never come to be.
  • The no framework, framework, faction will gain momentum (see Svelte).
  • JavaScript will settle, and hopefully, CSS will erupt and everyone will cry fatigue until it settles.
  • Hatred for apps store will grow, while the open web has no memory of wrong doing.
  • Redux will continue to get stiff competition (see mobx).
  • YARN will win more users.
  • The idea of “front-end apps”, “Thick Client apps”, “Static apps”, “No Backend app”, “SPA's”, “Front-end driven app” might get boiled down to the term/concept called "JAM Stack".
  • While bower is maintained, it's recommend to use yarn and webpack for new front-end projects.
