Top Three JavaScript Frameworks in 2020

JavaScript frameworks are the most favored platforms for web development. With JavaScript you can do allot with a single function or a single line of code. The best thing about JavaScript is that you can integrate it with any platform you want. If you see in the today web development you will find that JavaScript is the common language for developing web applications.

It is necessary to have deeper understanding of the top JS frameworks in today’s time. This article will take you through the three most popular JS frameworks and help you decide the perfect framework for your requirements.

1. NodeJS

As an asynchronous event driven JavaScript runtime, Node is designed to build scalable network applications. In the following “hello world” example, many connections can be handled concurrently. Upon each connection the callback is fired, but if there is no work to be done, Node will sleep.

2. Vue

Vue is a progressive framework ( which means that it gracefully adapts to the needs of the developer, starting from 3 lines to managing your entire view layer) used for building a single page user interfaces, created by Evan You,. The Vue framework also consists on core library that concentrations on the view layer only, and an ecosystem of supporting libraries help you tackle complexity in large single page applications.

This framework mainly works as it obtains the best possibilities that frameworks such as Angularjs, Reactjs, and Knockout provide. Undoubtedly, it then becomes the best version of all frameworks put together in a elegant package that delivers.

In simple words, Vue.js is a lightweight attractive alternative of Angular.js.

Key points about Vue.js:

  • Vue small size: The Vue is just about 18kb after zipping. Astonishingly lightweight, isn’t it? This makes Vue much faster and accurate than the other frameworks. Moreover, the small and fast environment of Vue lets users to separate the template-to-virtual-DOM compiler and the run time.
  • Easy to Integrate: Vue offers nice integration ability as it can be used for both building single-page applications as well as complex web applications. Moreover, the small interactive parts of the framework allow easy integration with other frameworks/libraries such as Django, Laravel, and WordPress.
  • Vue is a Scalable & Versatile Framework: You can use Vue as full-fledged library as well as a framework. Vue can be simply used to develop large and reusable templates without much hassles due to its simple structure.

3. Angular:

Angular is referred as of the most influential open source JS framework. Angular provide developers with every possible option out of the box. From routing to HTTP requests handling and the adoption of TypeScript, everything has been set up.

Even though the learning curve of Angular was quite steep in earlier versions, it has smoothened out in the latest version of Angular 5 and 6. This has been made possible through a robust CLI, which has taken away the need to know the low-level details for simple apps.

Angular is developed and maintained by Google, Angular has followed the schedule of releasing new versions every 6 months. The latest releases have mainly focused on the addition of new features and improvement of performance.

Key points about Angular:

  • Angular Build Optimizer: The Build Optimizer in Angular removes all the redundant runtime code. This makes the application lighter and quicker as there is a significant reduction in the size of the JavaScript in the application.
  • Angular provide Router Hooks: Tracking is possible for router cycles, right from the beginning of running guards till the activation has been completed.
  • Angular provide Data Binding and MVVM: Angular permits two-way data binding. Thus, minimizing the risk of possible errors and enable a singular behavior of the app. On the other hand, the Model View capability allows developers to work separately on the same app section with the same set of data.
