Angular as created by Google, basically for creating highly demanding single-page applications. The framework supports a multitude of different features for easing out the development process. Angular is also known for extending capabilities of HTML by adding attributes.
If you are looking for a high-performance SPA, there is no better choice than Angular. But you may face some issues with the performance of the data object model. There are a lot of tools for aid, use them along with Angular for the best result.
These are something you would only find in React and no other library or framework. It is used to create highly dynamic and fast single-page applications, making all the use of its great power. You won’t need to rewrite what’s already written with React, also, React Native can come to aid in a lot more ways than we can think of.
The extras you get with this library is something worth considering but be cautious that it has some features missing. The reason why React is a library and not a framework is the fact that it can do everything in Front end development.
Vue was created by Evan You, someone who directly worked on Angular while it was being developed. Evan created Vue to shred down the unnecessary from Angular, making it lightweight and still working everything out. The difference however is, Vue is more suited to a small size and medium size SPAs and can’t take on the heavy ones.
Vue offers everything that you need for building excellent UI and is capable of being used on a page that’s already built. Angular’s limitation with the compatibility issues if not being used from the start, and the reasonless heavy components, are both removed in Vue.
Even though Vue is questionable, is not backed by some top organization, it has gained massive popularity. Dynamic lightweight applications are the most valued use of Vue as a front-end framework. The comparatively small community support might also be a burden to think about. There are things still unexplored, but that’s changing with time.
If you ask about a package that gives you the best front-end development experience, and you will have your answer to what Ember is. One of the greatest implementations of Ember is Apple music, as a desktop app. And Ember is way more ambitious which things it can do with SPAs and mobile apps.
Ember is one of a kind, offering so many utilities with a one-time learning process. Desktop apps have been a necessity for quite some time for a few kinds of applications, and probably more and more would be needed in the future. Ember comes equipped with a desktop app with a great user interface to work with.
Main advantages of Aurelia are the dynamic routing patterns, the creation of custom HTML elements, and the data binding feature of the iconic framework. Aurelia also supports two-way data binding, which most other frameworks don’t have. Overall, it is a great package offering SPAs, web applications, and desktop applications, and definitely worth trying.
One of the only few libraries offering a JSON RESTful interface, Backbone is in a class of its own. Backbone has been used to create some of the best websites like SoundCloud and Airbnb. The heavy architecture compatibility is one of the greatest feats of what Backbone can conquer, along with some of the rare features you find in other packages.
Backbone is based on the model view presenter design paradigm, which has an edge over MVC and MVVC. Backbone was created with single page application development in mind. Its declarative event handling and enumerable API functions make it a number one choice for SPA development.
The love for HTML still lasts? Marko is the future where you can get all you want. Marko adds on various features to HTML, taking it to the next level altogether. Marko is very lightweight, even much lighter than the already light React. There are a lot of things common in the two, the difference is, however, the high performance and ease of use that comes with Marko. The most important difference is, however, React is more JSX, while Marko is more HTML.
However, there is no mobile native support in Marko, giving it an edge below React. Depending on your language of choice, there is certainly nothing better than Marko is you are an avid HTML coder. The choice not only extends your capabilities to better UI but things much more than that.
Mithril surely deserves attention for its performance capabilities, it sure has to offer a lot on the numbers. They have claimed to be much faster than Vue, React, Angular for starters, and the package size is very small compared to all three of them.
The micro framework is highly capable, but it didn’t shred all that weight just like that. With limited possibilities of Hyperapp, you won’t have much luck in building heavy web apps. But the nature of Hyperapp makes it very suitable to create small scale SPAs.
