In this article we take a look at four frameworks that are bound to create a ripple in the developer community this year:
It does have a slightly steeper learning curve, but makes development really straightforward. It’s a perfect solution for high performance, web application requirements.
Angular is a MVC type framework with two way data binding being its most notable feature. Two way data binding relieves the backend of any templating responsibilities. Whenever there is a data change, updation happens on both model and view side enabling you to build highly reusable view components.
AngularJS is immensely popular, with over 10,000 sites currently using it (according to Libscore). It is one of the best frameworks to use for building complex web applications as well as single page applications.
Since its launch in 2012, Meteor has drastically grown in popularity and is currently being used by some big names like Honeywell, IKEA and Qualcomm.
Backbone is based on the MVP (model – view – presenter) design paradigm which itself is a derivative of the MVC architecture. It provides models with key-value binding and custom events for handling data changes, Views have declarative handling, while the Router handles URL and state management. All in all, a pretty solid framework for building single page applications quickly and easily.
With over 26,000 stars on the Github repo, Backbone is being used by some really big names like Airbnb, Pinterest, Trello and Reddit.
