The year 2020 is the year people begin to abandon React and Vue in search of options closer to Vanilla JS and Web specifications.

The Svelte library is an interesting choice. It compiles down to JavaScript and has no runtime. I think developers are becoming more considerate of things like initial render and seeing beyond gimmicks like Virtual DOM.

I also believe that Aurelia is going to explore in use and popularity in 2020 when Aurelia 2 is released. Rob and the team have built Aurelia since 2015 to align with Web specifications, not replace them. The syntax is familiar, no gimmicks and it doesn’t have a steep learning curve. The new version is heavily aligned and based on actual specs and performance wise (like Svelte) will blow React and Vue out of the water.
