Just How Popular Is JavaScript?

Is JavaScript the most popular programming language? It’s definitely the most common language used in GitHub projects, but the curators of the popular programming language indexes say that’s not enough to make it the most popular language overall.

“People should be aware that GitHub is an open source software archive, thus containing lots of toy projects that can’t be taken seriously,” scoffed Tiobe Managing Director Paul Jansen. “I couldn’t find the average GitHub project size that quickly, but I bet that 50 percent of the projects will have less than 10,000 lines of code.”

Tiobe lists JavaScript as the eleventh most popular programming language. The PYPL Popularity of Programming Language index says JavaScript comes in seventh. Both indexes say that Java remains the most popular programming language.
