Top 5 Trending JavaScript Frameworks for 2019

The concern is really big when you are asked for a mindful choice regarding your selection of the framework for your app development. Apparently, picking up the most popular platform may not be the best indicator.

And when you seek for developers’ viewpoint, each of them has differing ideas about the best Javascript framework. In fact, developers are often optimistic about the possibilities that different frameworks offer, but are not in agreement about the risks or cons that framework will bring for your project.

There are lots of technologies that brims over every year and the earlier ones don’t run out of steam either. In such a technological chaos, when you find it quite challenging to choose amongst the plethora of frameworks available, take a rundown of this quick guide:

1. React.js

A JavaScript front-end library, developed by Facebook, for building user interfaces is a declarative, efficient and flexible framework that works incredibly for large scale projects. It is currently one of the most popular JS libraries and has risen in the ranks of other Javascript frameworks with an entitlement of being a powerhouse in the world of JavaScript development.

Projects that Need React

Since React is a high powered tool with a declarative nature of components, it acts as a catalyst for large scale projects that involves many components with different, often changing states – active/inactive navigation items, accordion sections expanded/collapsed, dynamic inputs, buttons active/disabled, user login and access permissions. React helps in managing those changing states actively and dynamically present different views to the user based on state information.

2. Angular.js

AngularJS a fully featured JavaScript framework, backed by Google and a very large open community, drives disruption for its intuitiveness and rich features. A widely accepted technology for creating dynamic, single page apps, and supporting MVC (Model View Controller) programming structure is the most preferred framework for building interactive components of a website.

Projects that Need Angular

  • When your project needs interactive and dynamic single page applications (SPAs) with its compelling features including templating, two-way data binding, modularization, RESTful API handling, dependency injection, and AJAX handling, AngularJS would be a great fit.
  • If you want to develop an enterprise or large scale app and wish to stay with a technology that is reliable, can manage millions of users, and consistent than Angular is the technology you can rely on.
  • Additionally, as a business, following a legally premised app is an advantage where you’re also assured of regular updates and support from the large open community.
  • Contrarily, you should totally not opt it, if your objective is to only achieve good SEO ranking and you’re running low in budget.

3. Vue.js

The Progressive JavaScript Framework.

With over 120k stars on GitHub, Vue.js is a progressive, incrementally-adoptable JavaScript framework for building UI on the web and is currently the trendiest JavaScript front-end framework with component-based architecture that makes it ideal for building large scale apps. With a rich collection of libraries and set of tools facilitating development, Vue.js becomes a favorite of developers.

Projects that Need Vue

  • Web applications that need high performance and faster speed;
  • Complex web applications that have to be integrated with external tools and API;
  • A complex local set-up as Vue CLI can effectively handle the code optimizations.

4. Meteor.js

An open source platform for web, mobile, and desktop.

An easy to learn and quick to build with, developed with just one language, easily converts to native mobile apps, active and supportive community, smart packages that save you time makes Meteor developers’ new favorite. But what makes it Holy Grail for users’ vying for web/app development?

Projects that Need Meteor

  • When you’ve lower development time and you need to build a MVP quickly- (Meteor allows for rapid prototyping with less development and deployment time and further allows to scale apps beyond MVP stage)
  • When the app incorporates real-time streaming feature. (The framework offers in-built and by-default real-time capability)
  • For building apps that can work on both iOS and Android platforms while meeting their native performance standards and other UX parameters.

5. Ember.js

A framework for ambitious web developers

Full front-end stack, Quick speed of run and load, performance focused, stable performance, friendly API and docs, Minimal demand for configuration and more makes it developer’s holy grail.

Projects that Need Ember

    • Ideal for developing complex web applications;
    • Scalable web applications;
    • And performance focused apps.

Final Words:

The aforementioned five major frameworks are all expected to see significant advances this year. Since they all come with their own pros and cons, it comes to your call which framework suits best to your project requirements.
