How many users do you think have their JavaScript disabled? And for best practices...

...what steps, if any, should we take to accommodate them?

a report from 2010 states that about 2% of users have javascript turned off...That was 5 years ago I would say that number has gone down as websites have turned to javascript to do more and more. In order to accomodate as many users as possible try to do as many things as you can through good use of html and css and focus on maintaining usability without the use of javascript with RESTful api's. I wouldnt be too overly concerned about it as most people currently have javascript enabled in their browsers. Read the following link for further info.


You can also use the noscript html tag to show users a notice that lets them know they need to enable JS for your website and how to turn it on.


  <div class="notice--warning">JavaScript is off. Please enable to view full site.</div>
