Frontend Development Frameworks
Here we’ll discuss at the most in-demand frontend development frameworks in the order of most relevant determined by factors like flexibility, ease of use and reach, happiness, a show of interest in. Looking forward looks like this is just the beginning.
Angular is most popular Frontend Development Framework in 2018. Angular with more than 44k on GitHub is a platform that makes it easy to build applications with the web and mobile. AngularJS combines declarative templates, dependency injection, an end to end tooling, and integrated best practices to solve development challenges. Angular empowers developers to build applications that live on the web, mobile, or the desktop. It has the most useful cli tool for beginners to easily get started, there is even a GUI client called console.
Vue is very demanded and popular Frontend Development Framework in 2018. Vue js, created by Evan you and 234+ community with more than 121,000 on GitHub is a very progressive framework for building user interfaces. It consists of an approachable core library that focuses on the view layer only, and an ecosystem of supporting libraries that helps you tackle complexity in large Single-Page Applications.
Data layer Frameworks
In this part, we’ll look at all the technologies used for transmitting and managing data.
There is obviously a big opportunity for creating GraphQL resources to cater for a lot of people who are interested in learning it in 2019.
GraphQL with over 10k on GitHub is a query language for APIs and runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. It provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, giving clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, making it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enabling powerful developer tools.
The Apollo will help to implement the GraphQL. The Apollo GraphQL platform is an implementation of GraphQL that helps you manage data from the cloud to your UI. It’s incrementally adoptable and can be layered over your existing services, including REST APIs and databases. Apollo includes two open-source libraries for the client and server, in addition to developer tooling that provides everything you need to run a graph API in production with confidence.
At the moment not much happen in the Backend Framework but express still top of the list and no other backend framework has been able to capture developer satisfaction like express.
Over the past year, koa’s popularity grew although the satisfaction rate seems to be kind of stagnant as express still Top of the list, considering the level of satisfaction of the rest of the backend frameworks like Meteor and other frameworks we can say koa is doing really well and there is plenty room for improvement.
Koa with over 24k on GitHub. Koa is a new framework designed by the same team behind Express, built to be a smaller, more expressive, and more robust foundation for web applications and APIs. By leveraging async functions, Koa allows you to ditch callbacks and greatly increase error-handling. Koa does not bundle any middleware within its core, and it provides an elegant suite of methods that make writing servers fast and enjoyable.
