The rise of Vue.js
“I can’t wait for the newest Vue (3) version and if what its creator - Evan You, is saying is true they’re going to hit a homerun and surpass other frameworks.” said one of our front-end developers Bartosz Zienkiewicz.

Not giving up the throne just yet - ReactJS
According to their own website React makes it painless to create interactive UIs. Design simple views for each state in your application, and React will efficiently update and render just the right components when your data changes.
Due to its popularity and established position (mostly because of support from such giant as Facebook) it is not likely it will give up its spot at the top in the coming years.
From AngularJS to Angular 7
Every couple of months Google comes up with a new version - from Angular 1 through 7. They keep improving their product and have a devoted following in their community. However it is already being surpassed by forementioned Vue when it comes to popularity.

Worth mentioning - GraphQL
Many consider that GraphQL is the replacement for the REST APIs in 2019. Since GraphQL integrates with React (a forementioned most popular JS framework) it is becoming an important competitor for Relay.
“In my opinion GraphQL, might be the feature to look out for in 2019. As seen based on npm downloads, more and more developers tend to use it in their projects. Its power comes from the fact, that GraphQL allows client to fetch only the data that it wants, and that means no more over or under-fetching!” - Andrzej Gatkowski, intern at Naturaily.
The community is currently standing strong behind React, and other libraries are following in their technical steps. It’s a safe career choice but you should also consider Vue.js, since its rise in popularity is steady and fast. It has already passed Angular, but to be fair this framework still has some adamant followers and specific uses.
