Javascript Frameworks You Should Check

Javascript frameworks jquery

In this article, I will list a few javascript frameworks that you should learn if you are or want to become a front-end developer. Last article I listed the best css frameworks for front-end developers.

The code in the image is by the way jQuery and is not mentioned further in this article.

1. React

React js framework

React.js is an open-source front end JavaScript library (not a full-fledged framework) that was created by a team of Facebook developers led by Jordan Walke back in 2011 and became open source in June 2013. It is the center of top JavaScript developer libraries. React is also used by many industry leaders, including Pinterest, WhatsApp, Reddit, Netflix, etc...

React is ideally suited for building SPA or cross-platform applications and designing small business applications.

Websites built with React

Airbnb, Asana, BBC, Cloudflare, Codecademy, Dropbox, Facebook, Github, Imgur, Instagram, Medium, Netflix, OkCupid, Paypal, Periscope, Pinterest, Product Hunt, Reddit, Salesforce, Scribd, Shopify, Slack, Snapchat, Squarespace, Tesla, The New York times, Typeform, Twitter, Uber, Udemy, WhatsApp, Zendesk.

2. Vue.js

Vue js framework

Vue.js is an open-source lightweight front end JavaScript framework used to build creative user interfaces and high-performance single page web applications with minimum effort.

Vue was first launched in 2014 by Evan You, a developer working for Google who took inspiration from Angular to deliver a simple lightweight and efficient alternative in the form of Vue.js. Although Vue has adopted most of its features from React and Angular, it has made major improvements on those features to deliver a better, easy to use, and secure framework. Example of this approach is that Vue offers a 2-way data binding as seen in Angular and ‘Virtual DOM’ as seen in React.

I personally use Vue the most in my laravel or wordpress projects. For example, I have made a woocommerce food ordering system that uses just vue in the front-end.

Websites built with Vue

Adobe, Apple Swift UI, Behance, Bilibili, BMW, Chess, Font Awesome, Gitlab, Hack the box, Laravel, Laracasts, Louis Vuitton, Namecheap, Netlify, Netguru, Nintendo, Pluralsight, Pornhub, Shien, Stack overflow, Trivago, Trustpilot, Upwork, Wizzair, Zoom.

3. Svelte.js

Svelte.js framework

The 3rd place in my list goes to Svelte.js. Svelte.js is an open-source component-based front-end JavaScript framework written in Typescript. It was created by Rich Harris.

Svelte unlike React or Vue has no virtual DOM. Instead, you build components boilerplate-free in simple HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code. Svelte Compiler then compiles this code into small framework-free vanilla JavaScript modules during build time and surgically updates the DOM when the state changes.

4. Ember.js

Ember js framework

Ember.js is an open-source JavaScript framework used to create scalable single page web applications (SPA). Unlike above frameworks, ember is based on the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVW) architecture pattern.

Websites built with Ember

Crowdstrike, Ghost, GroupOn, Heroku, Intercom, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Netflix, Skylight, Square, TED, Twitch, Yahoo, Zendesk.

5. Lit

Lit web component framework

Lit is a simple library for building fast, lightweight web components. At Lit's core is a boilerplate-killing component base class that provides reactive state, scoped styles, and a declarative template system that's tiny, fast and expressive.

Lit is basically a Web Component Framework than JS framework. Lit is created by Google developers. And yes I still decided to add it to the list.

6. Aurelia

Aurelia js framework

Aurelia's standards-based, unobtrusive style makes it the only framework that empowers you to build components using vanilla JavaScript or TypeScript. If you know modern JS and HTML, there's little more to learn to build even the most complex apps.

Aurelia can extend the HTML for various purposes, including data binding. Also, its modern architecture ensures that the purpose of toll is for interpretation client-side and server-side at a time.
