Learn More About JavaScript Frameworks

What are JavaScript Frameworks?

JavaScript frameworks are pre-written JavaScript code libraries designed primarily for developing websites and web apps. These frameworks provide code, enforce application structure, and support reusable templates. They can be used to build and support entire site trees or applications. Frameworks also include or integrate with JavaScript libraries that offer code for both front-end and back-end development use cases.

JavaScript frameworks are useful to ensure code syntax consistency across an entire development project. Since they also provide templates and pre-written code, they can also be used to quickly create new features that comply with the project’s conventions. They can even be used to package templates that can be reused for future projects. JavaScript frameworks commonly include rendering optimization tools, which in turn contributes to faster and more consistent app and website performance. Finally, most JavaScript frameworks are open-source, which means low cost and high customizability.

JavaScript frameworks can be used for application infrastructure, website building, and mobile app development. However, JavaScript frameworks operate on a lower level than most products in those categories. They are aimed at developers who are comfortable with creating, managing, and formalizing JavaScript components. JavaScript frameworks can integrate with many products from these categories as well, offering familiar conventions for creating reusable components that can plug into other tools.

  • Pre-composed templates
  • Website tree management
  • Application tree management
  • Virtual DOMs
  • JSX support
  • HTML support
  • CSS support
  • Routing support
  • Rendering optimization
  • Dependency injection
  • Application initializers
  • Page nesting
  • Opinionated frameworking
  • Inspection tools
  • Tutorials and knowledge bases

JavaScript Frameworks Comparison

When choosing the best JavaScript framework for you, consider the following:

JavaScript experience: To some degree, each JavaScript framework assumes the user knows how to code. As a result, the level of familiarity with JavaScript may ultimately determine which framework tool will be best. For example, some products include tools for users with little direct JavaScript coding experience, including compatibility checkers, full libraries with code explanations, and HTML code support. Some are written in JavaScript variant languages, which increases framework onboarding time.

Incremental vs. Full adoption: Choosing a JavaScript framework will depend on how comprehensively the product is employed. Some frameworks allow for incremental use, which allows users to create, control, and deploy the code in parts. This means users can use the JavaScript framework selectively to meet their needs. On the other hand, some products require full adoption. This means that the framework will be applied thoroughly to each component. This is useful for consistency, but full adoption may be less flexible to some users.

Dependencies: Some JavaScript frameworks have dependencies on other frameworks, applications, or other components. For example, Backbone has a dependency on jQuery that may be limiting to some development teams. Products may also have soft dependencies, where they may not necessarily require other programs or frameworks, but having those extra inclusions facilitate better workflows.

Mobile application development: If you are developing for mobile applications, there are several considerations for choosing an appropriate JavaScript framework. Some products like Polymer include optimization for mobile development, including integration or adoption measures that can be used to facilitate faster deployment. Other frameworks may only have code libraries or templates for browser applications, meaning that mobile templates may need to be developed by the users if they’re going to be consistently used.

Pricing Information

Most JavaScript frameworks are free. Additional features, such as third-party integration or dedicated support, may have a cost depending on the product.
