There is a wide selection of JS frameworks at the disposal of software developers today to tackle a range of web development tasks and projects, but what are some of the most useful frameworks used by web developers and what can they do? This blog post will delve into these frameworks and examine their uses, advantages and disadvantages in order to paint a clearer picture of this popular coding language.
However, Node.js does come without certain downsides. It only has a single chat and so can only execute a single request at a time. Node.js also suffers from reduced performance when handling heavy computing tasks and frequent API changes mean that users frequently are forced to change their access code to sync with the latest version.
React.js was started in 2011 by Facebook, to help simplify the software development experience. Its library was one the first to ever be released and quickly became popular with front-end developers. So much so that some of the web’s most popular sites such as the New York Times, Uber and Airbnb all have taken on React for their front-end website content.
React can be used with any front-end app, like business websites, social network dashboards and eCommerce and offers a high degree of flexibility to the user''s wants and desires. Further advantages of React include a better user experience, quicker development and faster testing which all helps save time and promote efficient software development.
However, React can occasionally be problematic for web developers. Its rapid pace of development means its users often need to regularly relearn the way of doing things in the framework. This can be challenging as programmers need to continuously update their skill set in order to stay proficient. This speed of development also means that educational documentation and resources can struggle to keep up with the latest changes, making it even more challenging to operate with. However, in spite of these challenges, a progressive platform is generally a good platform so this is more of a testament to the software.
In spite of these drawbacks, AngularJS remains a fully-featured and dynamic framework whose flexibility, and usability provides the basis for competent web applications including Gmail, Forbes and PayPal.
Vue comes with distinct benefits in comparison to a lot of frameworks. Firstly, it is a featherweight framework, weighing just 18 KB, allowing for rapid download and installation whilst also benefiting your overall SEO and user experience. The reactive two-way data binding available in Vue also makes it easier to update related components and track the data in the updates. Furthermore, Vue boasts integration capabilities and high flexibility meaning that it can be used on nearly every development project.
Vue, however, suffers in certain regards. Firstly, as it is a relatively new technology, there is a significant lack of experienced developers and we will probably have to wait a few years before these become available. To that end, there are also a limited amount of resources available and it doesn’t have most of the common plugins as the other frameworks that simplify the coding experience. Moreover, the over-flexibility of Vue means that there are frequent errors and irregularities within the code, leading to project delays.
Its relative simplicity compared to other coding languages means that this popularity is only likely to increase and it is probable that its frameworks will develop and be used to build further prominent websites and applications in the near future.
