As the complexity of the technology and standards of web development is rising, frameworks have become even more crucial. Here, we will discuss both backend and frontend frameworks that the best website development company would use. Let us see the list of 10 Best Web Development Frameworks in the market.
Here are a few robust Backend Frameworks (server-side)
Django has tools to allow developers to secure the website. Companies like Google, Instagram, even YouTube are in love with this framework. Django uses Python and prefers the Convention Over Configuration pattern (Also uses DRY pattern).
Express is gaining popularity among developers. Big IT-based companies like IBM and Accenture (among the other companies) are using this framework. Express is un-opinionated, flexible, fast & minimal.
Developers love Rails. It is a beginner-friendly framework. It has library-like dependencies that allow developers to perform faster and better. Plus the framework has a quite vast, dependable, and active community. One can find a vast knowledge base there. Hulu, Shopify and Airbnb use Rails. However, as one starts learning more and more about the framework, the learning curve becomes steeper.
This framework comes with API support. One can expand its reach through the packages. This is a very recent framework as compared to others. Larave is a Model-View-Controller framework (a design pattern used to develop UI) that uses PHP programming language. In terms of performance, this framework is not as competitive as Express or Django. The best website development company would choose a suitable framework based on its project, objective of the development and expectations of the client.
This is another Model-View-Controller framework in the market. Spring uses the Java programming language. It uses several sister projects to pull up the performance. Plus, developers love this framework for the very fact that it uses Java (which is popular among developers across the globe). However, just like Rails, Spring has a steep learning curve. Popular websites like Wix or TicketMaster use this framework.
Let us see some Frontend Frameworks
Angular is widely used to build single-Page applications. Google developed this framework, but Microsoft and Paypal use it too. Angular is a vast framework as developers have many things to learn in this. The Angular version named ‘Angular 1.x’ used JS, but then released Typescript.
This is a frontend library but many consider this as a framework. It was React that adopted component-based architecture first and later was followed by Angular and Vue. React has a virtual dom that enables faster and easy dom-manipulation. The credit goes to its JSX syntax too. React can be used in the backend and frontend both. Facebook developed this library and Facebook maintains it too.
Vue was never meant to become a trending framework. It started as an individual project and soon it became one of the most trending JS frameworks in the market. With its progressive outline, developers can use it for only one portion of the project too. Many big names are showing interest in this framework, though names like Google and Facebook are not supporting it.
This one is an award winner. Ember was awarded as the best JS framework in 2015. It has a huge community and it’s growing day by day. New features and releases are getting added to it regularly. Ember is used by developers to boost their productivity and speed.
Backbone is used to build single-page applications with its exceptionally light front-end framework. It holds a robust ecosystem that allows developers to create end-to-end client-side applications.
To wrap it up:
Though the list is long, there is no need to get overwhelmed by it. Developers can choose the framework as per the objectives and needs. The best website development company would always choose what suits its requirements the best.
