When we look to begin the front-end developer’s journey, after learning the HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript, we need to know about some frameworks/libraries or tools that the companies and the business demand while looking for a job. As a front-end developer, we should know the basic knowledge of UI designing applications and UX to create a user-friendly and attractive user-interface. Javascript performs the important function to manipulate the DOM and make the dynamic webpages. Today we are trying to arrange the best framework/libraries or tools in line—our focus on those tools that are most in-demand.

If somebody wants to learn the best CSS frameworks, check it out. Top 5 CSS frameworks

1- React

ReactJSReact is an open-source library, created by Facebook. It is used to build user interfaces and UI Components. Basically React enables complex UI and large scaling web applications, Today websites, applications moving to SAP (Single Page Application) based architecture. So It supports the SPA and manipulates the data without page refresh.

It’s the lightweight and efficient performer that makes it top on the list of javascript technologies. React interacts with the browsers DOM through the virtual DOM, but most of the frameworks directly interact with browsers DOM. The virtual DOM results in more efficient and fast performance when updating the large chunk files data.

ReactJS is easy and non-complex nature of the learning curve. It provides a quick and comfortable environment without any complexities. It’s architecture straightforward and easy to understand. It allows working as view in Model-View-Controller (MVC). React also supports server-side rendering using NodeJS and its good for SEO.

Companies, they use react. Facebook, Netflix, Khan Academy, Uber and many more.

2- Vue

VueJSVue is an open-source progressive javascript framework. It’s developed by the Google ex-employee when he was working in google creative lab. It’s one of the most used frontends frameworks. Beginners can easily get a quick start to build interactive interfaces, Vue js make the picture clearer in the web development process because it focuses on View in MVC. It a great combination of PHP-Laravel and VueJs to build a complex and intensive level application.

VueJs support the virtual DOM, it makes replica in memory when the application run. Whenever the user changes the data, virtual dom changes after comparing the virtual dom and real browser dom, thus making it change in real dom. It makes the DOM manipulation of data super quickly and fastly. The data binding is one of the core features that sync the javascript array, variable with actual HTML DOM.  We can easily make a powerful and user-friendly SPA website. It’s also super easy to learn same as reactjs.

3- AngularJS / Angular

angularjsAngularjs is a javascript based web framework, but it’s an older version of angular. The new version of angular start from angular 2 and it’s a typeScript-based web framework. It’s the first release in 2016 from Google. Now it’s angular 10 come with amazing features. It’s used to build optimized, complex and enterprise SPA based application. Angular has been updating the bugs and security patches and introducing the technologies every six months with the release of a new version of angular.

Developers can get a quick start of the app by the CLI (command line). The process is fast and quick, but Its learning curve is a little bit tough compared to react, vue. Using angular, we can create a progressive web app, mobile native apps with the strategies of Nativescript, Iconic, Cordova. It also has many built-in features like routes management, state management, HTTP client, dynamic animations, and reactive forms. We can also add more features to make the development process more convenient and scalable by these libraries and tools.

Angular used by the Forbes, Microsoft, Google, Youtube etc

4- Svelte

Svelte is an open-source compiler, not a framework. It converts the app code into a single javascript bundle, at the production build time. Its performance is often fast because it doesn’t ship extra libraries and script for production. Svelte total reactive because it doesn’t rely on other complex state management libraries. It handles itself by vanilla javascript. Its name is a svelte store that works very similar to Rjxs observables. It shareable into component trees. It is also super easy to learn and create a SPA application using sapper. Sapper powered by svelte. It supports the server-side rendering, routing, SEO and much more for svelte application.

5- Jquery

jQueryjQuery is leading on number one position from the past years. It’s an open-source library that manipulates the DOM and ajax requests. Its slogan ”The Write Less, Do More’‘ actually proves to make our hundred lines of javascript code convert into few jquery lines with the same functionality. So I highly recommend to every beginner they start the journey in the web designing. Even companies require jquery to create dynamic and meaningful and attractive Web UI. Its has another library jqueryui, which has a collection of pre-built widgets and user interfaces.
