It has a good and friendly developers community. It has many popular frameworks and libraries.
I would never recommend learning frameworks or libraries before learning the language very well. First, you have to learn the language. At least having a good understanding is a must.
There are so many famous frameworks and libraries. If you are a beginner, you might get confused. But you don’t need to worry about it. You don’t have to learn every framework/library. Just pick one framework based on the context which is suitable for you. And try to be good at it. Switching frameworks is easy if you learn and understand your first one well.
Speaking of the JS frameworks/libraries, first, we need to talk about the three most popular frameworks of the front end. These are ReactJS, VueJS, and AngularJS. Even though there are many popular font end frameworks. But these three are the most popular. You can learn one of them. If you can’t decide, I will suggest ReactJS.
There are also many frameworks for the back end. These are ExpressJS, KoaJS, AdonisJS, Meteor, etc. For developing API, express would be the best choice. On the other hand, Adonis follows the MVC pattern. If you are familiar with Laravel, it may seem familiar to you.
If we want to work with the mobile app, we can use React Native, NativeScript, Ionic, etc. There are so many popular mobile app that uses React Native. Click here to see.
For creating a desktop app, JS would be one of the good choices. Many popular desktop apps are made by using JS. Such as Skype, Github Desktop App, Slack, etc. Electron is one of the popular frameworks for creating a desktop app.
