Groovy, a programming language on the JVM, has found its way back into the Top 20 in this month’s Tiobe Index of language popularity after a two-year absence, coming in at No. 19. Groovy had been at No. 49 a year ago.

Because of its use in writing scripts for the popular Jenkins CI/CD system, Groovy is expected to stay in the Top 20, says Tiobe, which provides software quality services. Tiobe’s rankings are based on a formula that assesses searches on languages in popular search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Wikipedia.

Elsewhere in this month’s index, TypeScript, which had been in 49th place last month, slipped to 57th place. But Tiobe sees this slip as temporary for Microsoft’s typed superset of JavaScript.
