Commenting on this in the blog post Game of Frameworks, Andrew Stetsenko writes:
As you might have noticed, Vue.js was not so high in our skills rating. I guess there might be several reasons for that. First of all, not every company is ready to transfer their projects to Vue.js and discard more stable and common front-end solutions. Secondly, employers may want developers to learn Vue.js while working, so they don’t mention it in the initial job specs.
With regard to other frameworks, he also comments:
Surprisingly, the commonly-discussed Express.js (24) was mentioned less frequently, as was Flow (23).
jQuery, which admittedly is on the wane, still has a good showing (63) so don't abandon it just yet, while Reactive Native which is gathering quite a lot of attention only has 30.
"ECMAScript was always an unwanted trade name that sounds like a skin disease."
Several of the entries suggest an emphasis on testing - Jest is a test framework, so is Mocha, Unit Testing and TDD (Test Driven developments) are approaches that put testing first.
GIT (with 107 mentions) and Continuous Integration (62) were methodology/procedural terms included in the chart but as Stetsenko reveals in his blog one term that cropped up in half of job specs was excluded:
Although the term Agile (150) wasn’t mentioned in the chart, it had even more counts than Git or Redux. That might look strange, but working and communicating effectively within a team is now comparable to the hard skills every JS dev should obtain.
So if you are job hunting don't forget to include your soft skills.
