Top frontend development frameworks


1- React

One of the simplest frameworks to learn – React – was developed at Facebook to fix code maintainability issues due to the constant addition of features in the app. An open-source framework now, React stands out because of its virtual Document Object Model (DOM), which offers its exceptional functionality. An ideal framework for those who anticipate high traffic and need a stable platform to handle it.


Angular is the only framework that is based on TypeScript on this list. Officially launched in 2016, Angular was developed by Google to bridge the gap between the increasing demands of technology and conventional concepts that showed results.

Unlike React, Angular is unique with its two-way data binding feature. It means there is a real-time synchronization between the model and the view, where any change in the model reflects instantly on the view and vice versa.


Vue.js is a web framework and developers use it for building user interfaces. It works as an independent tool that creates web interfaces without requiring to have an additional extension. Vue.js is one of the highly popular front end technologies amongst developers, and its popularity keeps increasing day-by-day.


Svelte has made a difference by putting the work into a compile step instead of putting them in the browser, unlike frameworks like React and Vue. It writes the code to update the document object model in synchronization with the state of the application.


Emberjs is component-based and offers two-way data binding similar to Angular. It is designed to handle the increasing demands of modern-day technologies seamlessly. You can develop complex mobile and web applications with Emberjs and expect its efficient architecture to handle concerns.


Preact is a JavaScript library that describes itself as a fast 3kB alternative to React with the same ES6 API. As a frequent user of React, I’d always wanted to try out Preact and see what it offers, and the differences between Preact and React.


One of the easiest frameworks out there, Backbonejs allows you to develop single-page applications swiftly. It is a framework which is based on the MVC architecture. Similar to a Controller, MVC architecture’s View allows the implementation of component logic.


When you make your choice, keep in mind certain requirements that will help you greatly. Selecting among top UI frameworks, take into account both the users’ and development teams’ perspectives. Those features cover design, development, testing and maintenance stages. The best front-end frameworks simplify and advance the development process at the same time.
