Will JavaScript Pass the Test of Time?

For the last four years, I have been working on projects that employ a JavaScript-based client framework and leverage a RESTful API on the backend. With the client frameworks primarily centered around AngularJS and ReactJS, the transition away from MVC-based frameworks (Struts, Spring MVC, and Seam) was a significant change for me. Based upon the challenges and benefits with the current state of JavaScript, I began to wonder if these frameworks will pass the test of time. Then, I decided to take a step back and ask the bigger question, “will JavaScript pass the test of time?"
