Popular JavaScript framework of 2018

JavaScript development community is surely being the top-notch since past few years with its evolutionary JavaScript development frameworks. The number of modern JavaScript frameworks that emerged with JavaScript — jQuery, Knockout, Backbone, Angular, Bootstrap, React, Vue, and Ember, Underscore.

Once upon a time when jQuery used to enhance JavaScript tags and used to value for a number of new queries in JavaScript development community. But the entire scenario turned with the arrival of AngularJS and React. The trend soon shifted from AngularJS to Angular, coming over to Node.js, MeteorJS, React.js, and Vue.js


While some JavaScript frameworks observe the end of an era, others are top drawer on the graphs and redefining the approach UI coding can be alleviated


They follow a lifecycle. As soon as a new JavaScript Development Framework is released, JavaScript developers adopt it into their web development and post blog articles. Then there is a question-answer round on JavaScript development community and in the process, we get a brand new JS development framework, which usurps the throne. These are essentially JavaScript libraries or a set of pre-written JavaScript code that helps in the swift development of JavaScript-based applications.


Popular JavaScript Frameworks of 2018

Observing the current trends in technology scenario and capturing customers on the way is the key reason for the popularity of JavaScript frameworks. In previous years i.e. 2017, top 5 JavaScript Framework were — jQuery, Angular, React, Ember, and Vue.js. While there has to be a solid evidence for us to consider in the selective framework and what makes us switch from one to next,


let’s see what is in our basket for 2018


 Arising React.js

React was the most demanding and popular framework in 2017. React.js completely took off and blew right past jQuery in job queuing and number of web developer was experienced with the React. And consequently, it became the first library to blow over jQuery in job demand in the last decade.



jQuery is one of the outstanding JavaScript library intended to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML. jQuery UI is the perfect choice for developing highly interactive web applications as it provides a curated set of user interface widgets, effects, themes and above everything it sits on top of jQuery JavaScript library. It is worthless to say, jQuery has been serving the purpose of manipulating and traversal of HTML documents, animations and handling events along with Ajax to avoid page reload on refresh. It runs on multiple browsers and offers simple to use API.



Angular is a TypeScript-based open-source front-end web application platform led by the Angular Team at Google and by a community of individuals and corporations. Angular was initially released in October 2010, it is still getting bug-fixes, etc. AngularJS is the dynamic version of HTML and is hence used for building web apps, declarative templates with data-binding, MVW, MVC, MVVM dependency injection.



Ember.JS is an open source JavaScript framework has the ability to build complex and scalable front-end web applications by using best practices into the framework along with template integration, handlebars, and friendly APIs. you won’t require to explore more, rather simply focus on developing your web application special with minimal coding.



Vue is one of the most rapidly growing JS frameworks in 2016. Vue describes itself as an “Intuitive, Fast and Composable MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) for building interactive interfaces.” It was first released in February 2014 by ex-Google-employee Evan You. It covered in the top of headlines and got many fans in 2017.



Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code server-side. Consequently, Node.js represents a “JavaScript everywhere” paradigm, unifying web application development around a single programming language, rather than different languages for server side and client side scripts. It provides caching, real-time application development and is a lightweight, efficient and extensible framework.


Wrapping up

Frameworks and libraries are two fundamental factors that can’t be overlooked during designing and development of web/mobile application. All the Frameworks have their own advantages and disadvantages and can be used according to our needs and application’s requirement specification.
