As we start the new year of 2022, it’s always interesting to look ahead and predict what trends will shape the future of JavaScript. While the integration of AI and machine learning into JavaScript applications is not yet a widespread trend, it is definitely one to watch out for in 2023. AI and machine learning have the potential to revolutionize the way we build and interact with web applications, and it’s likely that we’ll see more and more developers exploring these technologies in the coming year.

Other trends to keep an eye on in 2023 include the continued growth of serverless architecture, the adoption of new frameworks and libraries, and the increasing importance of security and performance. Stay tuned for more updates as we move through the year and see what the future holds for JavaScript.

JavaScript may have been around since 1995, but it’s really come into its own over the last few years. It has skyrocketed to the top of developers’ favorite languages and it forms at least part of everyone’s daily internet use. JavaScript trends are an integral part of web development, and at the beginning of a new decade, we can only sit in anticipation of what’s coming next. 

Thankfully there are some things that we don’t have to wait for. From supersets to frameworks to query languages, there are some names that are whispers in the wind which we think will turn into gales in the year to come. If you want to prepare for this year in web development, here are a few things to study up on and keep your eye on.

JavaScript is not going anywhere

First things first, you can be safe in the knowledge that JavaScript will continue to be a popular pick for a programming language. Stack Overflow’s annual survey on the most popular languages has had JavaScript at the top for 7 years in a row, with nearly as many votes as C++, TypeScript, and PHP put together.

The rise of Typescript

Even so, let’s not discount TypeScript. This superset of JavaScript has come on leaps and bounds since it launched in 2012. In fact, it has recently entered the top 10 of RedMonk’s Top 20 Languages, and it shows no signs of falling back below the threshold. Look out for more major companies shifting to TypeScript, like Facebook did with Jest last year. Enterprise Business Apps in minutes. Generate Now!

Library competition

JavaScript frameworks are at the core of web development projects across the world, so it’s no wonder that libraries are among some of the most sought-after tools by developers. Vue, Angular, and React have been vying for the top spot, with React being widely agreed to be the best, attracting customers like the BBC, WhatsApp, and Pinterest. This year is a chance for Vue 3 to prove itself and win over some developers.

Web Components

Have you noticed that your favorite websites work that little bit better on your mobile devices? “That’s because developers are flocking to web components,” as Bertolt Tremain, a tech writer at State of Writing and Study demic says, “putting native apps out of a job and streamlining user experiences.

Web components require less runtime and rely less on JavaScript, which allows them to work across various libraries, making them a great flexible choice.” Facebook and Twitter have already made the leap to web components and we expect more big companies to follow suit.

GraphQL on the up

This is one technology that is looking like the future of query languages. Zain Abadawi, a blogger at Bestbritishessays and Revieweal, says “GraphQL is an efficient method of data fetching that is giving REST a run for its money when it comes to APIs, and has been pinned as the most intriguing language developers at the State of JS.” If you’re looking to get ahead of the curve, take a look at a GraphQL tutorial and see what you could use it for.

Svelte on the scene

Another shiny new piece of kit that’s getting developers excited is Svelte, a component-based UI framework for JavaScript. Svelte generates code that can manipulate the DOM, resulting in improved run-time performance, and the results are very promising. Developers are saying it’s fast and feature-rich, with seamless type value binding that is easy to implement. Whether it’s on your radar or not, Svelte is worth a look.

A bit of Bit

Finally, this open-source technology is showing some real promise in the world of reusable code. Bit turns components into building blocks you can share across multiple projects and different applications. \

What’s more, Bit can help you develop one component simultaneously across separate projects.  It’s flexible, it’s powerful, and it’s changing the way teams work.


Without a crystal ball, this is all we can predict in the way of JavaScript trends, but rest safe in the knowledge there are even more exciting developments to come that we can’t even dream of?
