When should a particular JS framework be used?
Amongst a list of frameworks available, what is the deciding factor that helps users (developers) to select a particular framework? Some make use of mainstream frameworks like Angular, React and Ember etc, while others look into a framework search engine – microjs, to get to know what they need for the particular application.
AngularJS initially released 8 years ago in 2010 by Google is one of the premier JS framework for web development. Available as an open-source front-end web framework on github.com/angular/angularjs, it is suitable for developing single-page applications. It complements Apache Cordova and is thus suitable for developing cross-platform apps. It eases tasks of both developers and testers by providing a framework for both client-side MVC and MVVM along with components commonly used in a rich internet application. Two-way data binding, DOM manipulation, Improved server performance, Faster application prototyping, Responsive web, Highly testable products, The MVVM architecture, Use of directives, plain HTML templates, and fast development are some of the major advantages that come with AngularJS.
ReactJS initially released 5 years ago by Jordan Walke is another premier JS framework for web development. Maintained by Facebook and the community of individual developers, it is suitable for creating single-page web or mobile applications. It often requires the help of additional libraries for routing, state management and interaction with an API. Available on github.com/facebook/react, it is an open-source framework that enables Android, iOS and UWP development and builds improved user-interfaces.
Folding the discussion
Making use of JS frameworks reduces line of code and thus increases efficiency and these helps utilize the basics of a programming language as it is without much modification.
