Today 14th of March 2019 I was surprised reading the chart of the top 10 npm packages served by jsdelivr.com, as it contains some entries I never heard of, and some others I would’t expect to top the chart.
- Slick Carousel is number one. And I thought sliders were dying.
- Yandex Metrics, I suppose it makes sense.
- Emojione, I didn’t even know it existed. Apparently lots of companies use it. Wow.
- Bootstrap. Ok it’s Bootstrap. People do Bootstrap. Do you Bootstrap?
- Font Awesome. Everybody likes it.
- jQuery, the former king of JS land. Apparently still is. After Slick.
- JS Cookie. The cookie monster.
- hls.js is used to do media streaming. Wow, never heard of it, such ignorance.
- Vanilla lazyload, because images are getting heavier and heavier and performance matter, I think.
