The List of the Popular Languages of Programming languages has been released in December. PYPL is a very popular reference indicator, its list data is ranked based on the list of people related to Google search frequency ranking, the raw data from Google Trends, that is, a language or an IDE on Google search more frequently, indicating that it is more popular 。
Developers can use the PYPL as a reference to decide which language or IDE to learn, or which language or database to use in a new software project.
Let’s take a look at the languages, IDE, and database rankings in the PYPL.
The first programming language list is as follows:
The position has barely changed, and Python is still well ahead of Java in the first place, and there are a few more languages on the list worth mentioning.
The first is the most eye-catching Dart, which didn’t have it on last month’s list, and this month suddenly dropped to 20th place, leaving the latter several languages one place behind, presumably related to the release of 2.6 last month and the features of pre-compiled locally executable code.
Ruby was overtaken by VBA, and the ranking dropped one place, although not by much, but excluding a few languages that were automatically moved back due to Dart’s strong entry, Ruby was the only one on the list to drop in the rankings, and naturally became more conspicuous.
In addition, Haskell’s share has not increased for several months, and the ecology may not really be very active, referring to the previously released 2019 Haskell survey.
Take a look at the IDE list:
The top three are Visual Studio, Android Studio and Eclipse, but only Android Studio shares rose (up 3.5 percent) compared to the same period last year, while Eclipse’s share fell significantly throughout the list (- 4.8%)。 Overall, the top 3 is still well ahead of the other IDEEs.
In addition, VS Code, which ranked 4th, PyCharm at 6th, and Xcode, which ranked 8th, all grew by more than 1.0%, a good result on the overall list. We’re more concerned about the open source VS Code (although it’s just an editor, not an IDE), and recent information related to VS Code is:
Facebook default development environment with VS Code
Visual Studio Online is finally on the market
Finally, let’s take a look at the database:
The overall list is flat compared to the same period last year, not to say, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and MySQL, the three share changes are .7, .0.6% and -0.6%, respectively, these numbers are relatively large in the list.
It’s also worth noting that comparing db-Engines’ December data from another database leaderboard shows that the top 5 are exactly the same:
