ES6 or TypeScript?
Also for ES6 itself, the survey shows that satisfaction with language has increased in recent years. Among those who have already worked with it and are working with it again, that is 86.3 percent of the participants, the elegant programming style with the corresponding patterns is an important reason for using it. In addition, ES6 is perceived as a full-fledged, powerful programming language. For those who do not want to work with ES6 again, the buggy, error-prone code is a reason against ES6. And: They find ES6 cumbersome, inflated and complex. So it seems to be more a question of perception and one’s own preferences, as judged by ES6. On average, 85.9 percent of respondents have experience with ES6 and would use it again.
In TypeScript, there is a clear trend in terms of satisfied with the language variation, 2016, around 21 percent of respondents said they have already worked with TypeScript and want to use it again. In 2018, 47 percent have chosen this answer option. In Germany, 54.4 percent of respondents this year voted in favor of an above-average number of respondents compared to the overall average. Worldwide, the rate of satisfied TypeScript users is 46.5 percent.
