What do you see when you open a browser and enter the URL in the address bar? A set of intuitive, lucidly constructed pages and hypnotizing visuals.
Well, these are what we refer to as ‘websites’ in layman language.
What we get to see on the websites is known as the ‘frontend’ in the technological jargon.
Web developers are the wizards who create magic on websites using new technologies in front-end development such as frameworks, tools, and libraries.
Every couple of weeks, a new version of some technology or programming language is released. Each one is better than its predecessor and offers new features and improvements.
In this blog, we will take a closer look at exploring the top front end development technologies. This helps businesses to intensify their user experiences.
Bootstrap needs no introduction. GitHub’s second most starred project, with more than 123,000 stars, it’s one of the most popular, open-source libraries meant for designing intuitive and powerful cross-browser compatible apps. You will find an HTML and CSS based design template for interface components, navigations, and typographies. It also consists of several tools and extensions such as jQuery UI Bootstrap, jQuery Mobile Bootstrap theme, BootSwatchr, and much more. Since the Bootstrap framework is known for its customization, it has dozens of CSS frameworks to develop a website design and to support popular CMS like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. Due to its extreme popularity and performance, Bootstrap thrived its favorites from 800% to 1,000% in recent years.
Vue JS is a simple framework backed by a powerful library to build modern Web interfaces. This open-source framework is known for its integration into projects that completely use other known JS libraries. It comes with the potential to power advanced single-page applications. Since it’s been designed for functioning as a web application framework, its adaptable architecture is focused on web UI development ideas such as declarative, components, time-travel debugging, etc. Thus, the core libraries work on handling complex applications, lightweight in nature and are easy to learn.
With so many front end frameworks in the market, picking the best amongst them will be a task in itself. But remember, every technology has its pros and cons. You need to think about the specific project requirements when finalizing any technology. You can also consult a good IT firm for further advice. Things will be clearer. All the best.
