    Before I start with the Top Javascript Frameworks, let us first understand what is the Javascript?

     

    Javascript is a programming language which is used to create the dynamic and interactive websites. It is an open source and a lightweight cross-platform used to create games, software, and creative websites. You just need a browser to execute it.

    Here's a list of top Javascript framework which you should learn in 2018

With the passage of time, it is getting popular and is used by developers across the globe for creating fast network applications.

     

    Installation on UNIX/Linux/Mac OS X, and SunOS

    Based on your OS architecture, you can download and extract the archive node-v6.3.1-osname.tar.gz into /tmp, and then finally move extracted files into /usr/local/node.js directory.

     

    $ cd /tmp
    $ wget http://nodejs.org/dist/v6.3.1/node-v6.3.1-linux-x64.tar.gz
    $ tar xvfz node-v6.3.1-linux-x64.tar.gz

Declarative views make its component more predictable and readable. In MVC or (Model View Controller) React.js work as V and is adjustable to any types of the architecture.  It uses virtual DOM which gives a great performance.

    It is used for the UI where data changes time to time like Facebook and Instagram and mainly use for efficiency in heavy data-traffic application. It uses both for server side and client side. It is component based which is used to build encapsulated components that after combine to form complex UIs.

     

    Command to Install React module

    Angular 2 is a Javascript framework which is used to develop a complex web application. It is redesigned after the Angular 1 and carried it's legacy forward. However, I must say that Angular 2 is easier than Angular 1. It has good performance for server side rendering and offers fast views for mobile. It has many features like creative UI effective, security, data binding, routing, mobile gestures, filtering etc.


    It has the modular framework where different functionalities are contained within the module and provided to the other parts of the application as a general service. It improves the existing modules into standard ES6 modules.

    Meteor.js contains the front-end libraries, a Node.js-based server, and a command-line tool. It helps to create a scalable web application on both server and client side. It also integrates with the Apache Cordova, AngularJS, React, and MongoDB. It has good speed and removes the headache of file linking, concatenating and minifying files. It integrates with MongoDB and uses the Distributed Data Protocol and a publish-subscribe pattern to automatically show data changes to clients so that the developer don't have to write synchronize code.

     

    It is developed by the Meteor Development Group and was first introduced in December 2011.

    Top 7 JavaScript Frameworks a Developer Must Know in 2018

 2 Comment(s)

  • Well, it’s really unfair to call the exclusion of  Aurelia.io from the blog a disservice, as there are so many popular JavaScript frameworks out there to choose from. The author chose the seven frameworks that are the most popular ones and widely used by developers worldwide.  Always remember, there is no good or bad framework, and the choice solely relies on functionalities of a particular framework and project requirements. Aurelia might be your favorite framework, but that doesn’t have to be the case with every developer.
  • you are doing a disservice by not adding Aurelia.io 
    (edit: ok, fair enough -- perhaps the title of the blog should be something like: the most popular frameworks of 2017 -- it's not like they are personal recommendations.)
