Definitely — to be more clear, I attempted multiple search terms before landing on this one.
There are several other search term combinations that you can come up with, each producing different results. In only one scenario did React come out on top, from what I remember. Whatever the particular search scenario, my point isn’t necessarily that “Vue is better than React,” or “Vue has more users than React,” or “Vue is more popular than React.” On the contrary, I went out of my way to qualify that search term comparisons and stars on Github do not necessarily directly translate to industry adoption. What they do show, however, is a massive increase in interest in Vue, at the very least.
My larger point with all of the examples isn’t really to pit one framework against the other — I’m more-so attempting to demonstrate that Vue has earned a seat at the table — (where React and Angular currently sit).
All of this was meant to be taken in the context of Microsoft’s decision to drop support for Vue — I’m attempting to show that Vue can/should no longer be considered an obscure second/third-tier framework, because in my opinion, it isn’t. (In my mind) it is absolutely in the top tier (with React/Angular) today.
Hoping that clears a little bit of the decision making up — also, I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I’m fielding some constructive criticism on this one, and it’s absolutely welcomed. My highest-level goal with all of this is to provoke conversation about not only Vue, but the larger .NET ecosystem and its growing interaction with JS frameworks — and I think that’s a goal that’s being met.
