- Increased Productivity – The inbuilt functions and patterns provide programmers with a faster and easier alternative to spend time on long pieces of redundant code.
AngularJS and Angular 2
- One-way data binding (while retaining two-way data binding by using ngModel)
- Controllers and $Scope replaced
- Component-based UI
- Improved DI ( e.g. child injectors introduced)
- New Event Syntax to take user input
- Ng-app attribute ditched for bootstrapping (which is platform specific), to call application
- It comes with all basic and necessary libraries installed, but still requires many services, directives and filters to be imported. This can be a plus since it gives programmer more control over the resources required for application.
There are numerous other upgrades and benefits to using Angular 2.
Although, typically used for single-page application development, Ember is also great for designing complex, large-scale applications and websites that offer a lot of features. Other properties of Ember include:
- Model-View-View Model (MVVM) framework
- Two-way data binding
- Handlebars based templates are in sync with the data changes
- Great backwards compatibility
- The Ember router handles URL translation into a series of nested templates that are associated with your application’s pages. Depending on the URL, the router is also responsible for determining which template should be rendered on the page, the controllers it should be connected to, and the particular model represented by the controller.
When Ember is used alongside Ruby on Rails, it provides developers with more flexibility and an opportunity to get more creative with their code in order to design highly interactive web apps.
Vue is was created by Evan You, who brought together the most useful features from his previous project, AngularJs, into this self-proclaimed library which can be integrated with additional tools to perform framework-related operations. Meanwhile, other developers have defined Vue as a progressive framework that is faster and features a minimal core in comparison to React or Angular 2.0. It is praised by developers for being a highly adaptable software stack that is great for quick, cross-platform development and setting up sleek SPAs where performance is of priority. Going deeper into other features, Vue offers:
- Two-way data binding (just like AngularJS)
- Server-side rendering
- A great project scaffolding in the form of Vue-Cli
- Core library that is heavily focused on the view layer, which can be used in combination with other libraries – or it can be integrated with existing projects to further refine them.
- Templating in terms of parsable (enhanced) HTML by binding the rendered DOM to the instance data.
With additional tools, developers can handle routing, animations, and much more.
React is among the pioneers libraries to first offer developers a virtual DOM to render. The in-memory structure maps out differences between the virtual and actual DOM to determine the minimum number of operation required to update the page. The operations are carried out in form of batches. Some other plus points and qualities of React include:
- Light-weight, fast and flexible framework
- Notable SEO performance
- Simpler JSX
- Good documentation and abundance of online resources as well as tutorials
- Efficient component model (e.g. easy to manage isolated components)
- Easy to comprehend and straight-forward app development (due to one-way data flow and simple display logic)
- React components are re-useable for other applications and they can even be made open source.
Around 38% of developers are using the React library to build dynamic web applications that are likely to receive high traffic.
