Subject RE: Does Cordova have a problem making developers happy?
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2016 00:12:11 GMT
As I told some of my co-workers today:

If you read the fine print, the actual statistic is “% of developers who are developing
with the language or tech but have not expressed interest in continuing to do so.” Clearly,
it’s not a good list to be on, but developer behavior also doesn’t reflect their stated
intent. NPM Stats show the number of Cordova downloads has actually doubled since the same
time last year. 

Again, I don’t think this is a good list to appear on… I’m just not sure what to make
of it given developer behavior.

It's interesting that CoffeeScript is on this list and that it passed Cordova in most dreaded.
 I also wonder what would happen if we went on the WordPress mailing list and talked about
how people were so unhappy with WordPress.
