Getting started with JavaScript development? Find out some of the best frameworks to build a modern application in less time.
JavaScript is one of the most popular languages for web development with a history of more than 20 years.  However, despite the simplicity and unambiguousness of JS syntax, it is not an easy task to create large-scale software projects without additional tools. And just to make the process of software production easier, developers try to find the best JavaScript frameworks for themselves.
The best JavaScript frameworks make coding faster and easier, so you can focus on designing the perfect website layout – instead of becoming bogged down in code. A number of great ones have popped up on the market in recent years.

Let’s explore some of the best JS frameworks available int he markets for web application development.


Angular  is a redesigned architecture of Angular.js framework developed and maintained by Google. It is the most popular JavaScript framework at present, and most of the developers use Angular  for developing front-end applications. Unlike React.JS and other frameworks, Angular  uses one-way data binding for easing down the DOM operations making it a completely different front-end instrument. Its one-way data binding attribute has helped the developers to increase the performance of applications with single pages. However, it has not dropped its two-way data binding attribute for rendering the DOM operations. Moreover, Angular  can be easily molded with Polymer.JS components for making the application more robust and productive.

It is popular because it has been designed to build massive applications that consume and process a lot of data. To top this, in addition to great processing capacity, it has great organizational capabilities as well through its modularizing and extracting components.

The above-mentioned JavaScript frameworks are best in their own ways, and developers use it differently according to their needs. However, deciding the best JavaScript framework is not an easy task as it would depend on numerous factors.


React.JS is best known for building attractive user interfaces and is basically a JavaScript library created and maintained by Facebook. It was designed keeping in mind two-way data binding. The concept behind the Uni-directional data flow architecture is that any modification or changes done are rendered conditionally with the DOM. As we know that managing the operations of DOM is an expensive as well as a time-consuming affair. But, we know that the DOM operations are important procedures and must be frequently concluded. Leading to this, the efficiency of the JavaScript framework ultimately decreases. This is the reason why most of the web developers prefer React.JS over any other framework as with two-way binding, React.JS can potentially reduce the need for performing frequent DOM operations.


Vue.js was released in 2014 and is the fastest growing framework adopted by developers. It is a lightweight progressive JS framework which gets a lot of its concepts from ReactJS and AngularJS.

It has a template style similar to Angular and has component based props just like ReactJS. Vue provides an easy and fast fix for applications, UI, and an interactive web interface development. It can power advanced single page web applications.

The most significant advantage of choosing Vue over React is that in Vue, the component’s dependencies are tracked automatically during its rendering. Thus, the system knows which component needs to be re-rendered when a state changes.

This prevents extra work needed for optimization and lets the developer focus more on building the app.


Another JavaScript Framework to look out for in 2018, Ember.JS is another front-end developing framework preferred by most of the developers due to its traditional routing mechanism, Handlebars template engine, and components. Ember.JS is similar to Angualr.JS where most of the operations and attributes are similar. Also, Ember.JS can easily update the Model and View of the application by using the ‘binding’ command, that is; it supports two-way data handling. Unlike other frameworks, the developer is required to get a handle on concepts like Serializers, routers, adapters and components due to its MVC (model view controller) architecture being complex. Though an older JavaScript framework, I have included this because it is still in use due to the flexibility and transparency it offers.

We hope the article above give you an idea about the JS framework for your next project.
