JavaScript is the language of the web. It is the preferred language by programmers, used to code most of the internet applications which give users a pleasant online experience. JavaScript is popular because it uses client-side script programming. It performs tasks on the client machine as opposed to relying on the server to function. Client-side programming enables you to continue interacting with the web page on your device even after your internet connection goes off. Java may not the only one of its kind in the market, but it was the pioneer and the one in most use.

With the many years since its inception, Java has undergone a lot of improvements in a bid to make it easier to use. Developers have come up with frameworks to ease the coding process. JavaScript has so many frameworks with unique capabilities, so you may need to choose the best according to your needs. There are the mainstream frameworks that are used by most, but there is also much more that Java has to offer. Let us look at five popular Java frameworks.

Angular

Angular is a product of Google, popular among many web apps.  It is an MVC framework which works best for complex applications that could use a single modular framework for all purposes. It is therefore used in developing Single Page Applications (SPA) where it performs data binding through extending the HTML into the application and interpreting the attributes.

Meteor

With its varied nature, meteor covers most of the software development tasks and is used for both web and mobile. Unlike Angular and React which use CSS and HTML meteor avoids all that and makes the coding process much easier. Meteor is used in areas such as database management, backend development, rendering of a website’s front end, and business logic.

React

React is also a very popular framework by Facebook, although not fully MVC. It is used in combination with other frameworks like the Angular. It is great with laying views and works well with a framework that is isomorphic. Programmers use it to develop a dynamic user interface of web pages which have high levels of traffic. It is easy to integrate with other applications as it uses a virtual DOM.

Vue.js

Vue.js is the go-to platform for developing cross-platform, its most attractive feature being its dual integration mode used to create high-end Single Page Applications. It is simple, fast, flexible, and easy to use, and has elements from some other frameworks like Angular, React, and Ember. With its virtual DOM feature, you can manipulate objects without drawing them. It also uses two-way data binding.

Ember.js

Ember.js is perfect for handling complex user interface thanks to its features which support two-way data binding. It functions just like Angular but with a little less flexibility. Ember.js helps with data management and application flow. It also has the Glimmer rendering engine which raises rendering speed. Websites like Netflix and LinkedIn use Ember.js.

Before choosing a web app framework, consider the strengths and weaknesses of the framework to ensure it meets your needs.
