A web development framework is an abstraction in which an application providing generic functionality can be selectively changed by additional user-written code. Frameworks are more adaptable for web design, and hence most website developers use them.
- Strong community support- Since frameworks are used by a large number of people, which means other developers may have already come up with solutions to certain problems.
- Ease of use- Having predefined functions, makes it easy to use when developing applications and websites. It also enables Writing maintainable and easy-to-read code.
React’s idea of Components is self-contained modules of code that can be reused. Thus helping the developers to save their time by once writing the code and reusing it across the application. You just need to change the code in one location for updates.
This framework has earned popularity very quickly due to its enormous feature support. Websites like BBC and Dropbox are built with React.
It is mostly used to develop single-use applications. Since it is growing rapidly, many of its versions are available now. This framework is ideal for developing enterprise-grade applications making it easy to incorporate complex functionalities.
Websites like IBM, and PayPal, are created with Angular.
EmberJS has gained popularity with its wide application area. It is an open-source framework that allows developers to create a wide range of web applications. The two-way data binding support makes it a reliable platform for handling complicated User Interfaces no matter the size of the website.
