Top front end development frameworks html pro

It is safe to say that web development is the most widely used field of computer science. Its widespread nature and necessity has made the developers strive for easy to use and responsive development solutions. Another contributing factor to the progress of web development, specially the front end is human attraction to aesthetics. As the consumer becomes more aware and the world becomes more fast paced, the requirement for an up to date, fashionable and trendy website increases. All these factors have contributed to the progress of the web design and development fields. Here, we discuss the current most popular frameworks for front-end web development; their popularity is definitely well earned.  

Angular JS:

Angular

 

Angular JS is a JavaScript based open source framework that was designed to tackle the challenges encountered in the design and development of single page applications. Its unique architecture is what makes it popular among developers; the MVV model allows the developers to save a lot of time. The architecture mainly divides a web application into front-end and business logic making it more manageable. This also signifies that Angular JS is used for both front-end and back-end development justifying its popularity. However since the development of faster and more responsive frameworks, other front-end frameworks are being preferred over angular. Nonetheless Angular JS services are still very popular due to its multi-tiered functionality and unique architecture. Here are few more features that make it deserving of the limelight.

  • Custom HTML tags

The extended HTML attributes in Angular allow the creation of customized HTML tags which can be then used to “decorate” elements with customized behavior and properties. These tags serve as custom widgets in the development  of the front-end of a web page making every web page unique and easy to design.

  • Two Way Data Binding

The MVVM architecture divides an application into view and model i.e. the front-end and business logic. However the changes in view will reflect in the model and vice versa saving developers the headache of making the same changes twice.

  • Dependency Injection

Angular JS comes with a built-in dependency injection subsystem that allows you to ask for a dependency rather than creating it yourself.

  • Easier Testing

Angular JS comes with an end-to-end and unit test runner setup. It has been designed to be completely testable from the very beginning making it incredibly easy for the developers and reducing the development time.         

React JS:

React JS is a JavaScript library that is maintained by Facebook. It is mainly designed to assist in the development of front-end of a single page web or mobile applications i.e. the view part only. Development of the back-end with react requires the use of additional libraries which makes the development process slightly more complicated. However, the front-end development with React has great benefits; on top of that it is an open source software which makes it very popular among developers. An added benefit that has given React its popularity is a very easy learning curve; the straight forward API and simplified programming approach of the React framework will get you designing attractive user interfaces in no time. Some other features of React JS include:

  • Adaptability

React JS is highly adaptable due to its short list of life cycle approaches.  The recent updates ES2015 and ES2016 in JavaScript have made the scripting language significantly user friendly; React JS’s rendering functionality allows it to utilize these updates in a high functioning manner.

  • Server-Side Communication

The additional libraries of React JS allows the programmers to carry out functionalities like server side communication through life cycle “hooks” that enable server requests.

  • Asynchronous Functions & Generators

The freedom to pause and resume the execution of JavaScript function can be rendered into React JS through the ES6 update of JavaScript making it a highly favored framework.

  • Flux Library

As mentioned above that React is a library made with JavaScripts, Flux is another library that complements React completely and makes the managing of data even easier throughout the application.

Backbone JS:

Backbone JS is a project hosted on GitHub that is available for use under the MIT software license. This framework structures the web application by using the MVP (model-view presenter) design pattern. It has been leading the web development industry due to its key-value binding and custom event features. Backbone JS is also designed to aid the process of developing single-page web applications and contains over 100 available extensions. Structurally Backbone is quite similar to angular as it divides the application into user interface and business logic. However its light weight structure makes it well liked among the developing community.  

  • Maintains Data Integrity

Backbone JS handles and maintains the integrity of your data when storing it into the server. The formatting of the data is preserved when transferring it from client side to server side.

  • Updates HTML Automatically

Backbone JS updates the HTML of your application when changes in the model are made.

  • Dependencies

Backbone.js has soft dependency with jQuery and hard dependency with Underscore.js.

Vue JS:

vue

 

Vue JS is an open source JavaScript framework that is used for developing user interfaces. It can also function as a web application framework for developing single page applications. Vue is designed to be incrementally adaptable which simplifies its integration with other projects or applications that use JavaScript. Other advanced function such as routing, state management and build tooling are made available through supporting libraries. VUE JS possesses a data binding feature that allows the manipulation of HTML attributes and elements, somewhat similar to the custom tags of Angular JS. Vue has various attributes that allows the developer to create custom components, attributes and event handling features; in addition its lightweight nature makes it a breeze to work with.

  • Vue-CLI

Vue JS  can be very easily installed using vue-cli at the command line, which makes the compilation of the project very easy.

  • Watchers

Vue watchers take care of your events even if the data changes. Developers do not have to fret about event handling if any data changes occur, Vue watchers will take care of it for you.

  • Animation/Transition

Vue JS allows the addition of transition and animation effects through third party animation libraries. It also has a built in component that provides the transition effect to the elements it is wrapped around. These functionalities give a unique quality to the UIs featuring Vue JS.

  • Routing

Vue-router makes it very easy to navigate among the web pages providing the ease of access necessary for efficient programming practices.  

  • Computed Properties

Just like event handling Vue JS also covers the changes made to the UI elements. The format and layout of the UI will not have be revamped due to minor changes, Vue will do the necessary calculations and save you additional coding time.

SASS:

SassScript is a scripting language itself, however SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheet) allows developers to write code in another language and compile it into CSS. It is also commonly known as CSS with super powers. Basics of SASS are just like CSS when it comes to syntax and properties but it also acts like any other programming language allowing the use mixins, imports, nesting and the creation of variables. Here are a few features that make SASS the sassier CSS:

  • SS Compatible

Sass is compatible with all the versions of CSS leaving no loopholes in the “Awesomeness” of the framework.

  • FRAMEWORKS

An extended array of frameworks have been built with Sass; Compass, Bourbon, and Susy just to name a few.

  • Functions

Sass has a built in set of extremely handy functions that will make it clutter free and easy to use. Some included functions are related to color or other styling elements; the best thing is that it is still being improved. The newer versions include an additional function making it even more user- friendly.

  • Interpolation

Variable interpolation inside the code is a basic of any programming language and any language without it seems like a pain to work with. Sass has solved this programming headache allowing the clean separation of code to making it easier to deal with.

 

The popularity of these frameworks will keep changing with the advent of faster more compatible frameworks but the constant in this equation is the utilization. Websites, web platforms and mobile applications are definitely not losing any popularity in the near future. In fact the usage and traffic may as well increase as the reach of the internet extends to under developed countries that lack the access to internet connection. However use and development of a website does not have to mean that you are a development expert and completely understand the working of these technologies.
