JavaScript Frameworks: Which One to Select

Published on 17 August 18
JavaScript Frameworks are one of the favored platforms for developing websites today. However, when it comes down to making a selection from the wide array of frameworks available; you may have to go through a lot of confusion. To simplify this task, we have shortlisted some of the top frameworks along with their benefits to help you make the final decision:
1. AngularJS 2.0 and 1.x:

Angular JS 2.0 has become a very popular framework after its new official release. One of the biggest advantages it has to offer is rapid development. Other advantages offered by this framework include:·

  • Easy code integration and
  • Readiness for unit testing

2. ReactJS:

ReactJS is the other popular JavaScript framework used widely today. It is also maintained by a very reputed giant named Facebook. Advantages provided by ReactJS:

  • Ability to perform well in SEO
  • Virtual DOM
  • Simpler JSX
  • Powerful JavaScript library
  • Building dynamic websites

ReactJS provides fewer benefits in terms of simplicity, testing, and component structure when compared to AngularJS. However, this does not make it fall short from AngularJS.

3. Meteor.js:
Meteor.js came with the idea of using Javascript at the back-end. We all know that Javascript is a universal language that can be used on the client-side. But using it at the back-end to save time is one of the advantages offered by Meteor.js. The front-end developers can work at back-end comfortably with the help of Meteor.js without having to switch between Python/Ruby/Java and PHP. Hence, it offers the flexibility of using language.
4. Node.js:

Node.js uses non-blocking and event-driven I/O that allows the apps to remain light in weight and efficient across devices. Other advantages offered by Node.js include:

  • Building fast network applications
  • Handling simultaneous connections
  • High throughput
  • High scalability
  • Fully featured tools

5. EmberJS:

EmberJS allows developers to build web applications more speedily and with much ease. It is, for this reason, the first choice for several developers. Privileges of EmberJS include:

  • Router preventing the web from breaking
  • URL routing
  • A working back button for every route
  • Easy to use APIs

EmberJS can be used along with Rails to give more freedom, joy, and flexibility of coding richer, interactive web applications.

6. Mithril.js:
Mithril.js has features somewhat similar to React. It offers hierarchical MVC components, safe templates by default, intelligent DOM difference checking, and high-performance rendering. Apart from these, it also offers URL routing like EmberJS and customizable data binding.
7. Polymar.JS:
Polymr.JS is a JavaScript framework offered by Google. Even though react as a preferable choice by several developers as compared to Polymer; still there is a list of advantages that cannot be overlooked. Polymer comes with high-quality material components. It has web components that are part of HTML and hence it suggests long-term existence as compared to React. Bearing this in mind, Polymer is here to stay and it won't be replaced by any other framework in near future.
8. Vue.js:
Vue.js is replacing Angular in many cases. To start with, it comes with a lightweight library. Its other features include virtual DOM and two-way data binding that helps developers to build web apps with much ease.
9. Aurelia:

Aurelia is the newest JavaScript framework gaining fame. With the help of Aurelia, developers can code better and it also offers object-oriented techniques. It provides better web components like Shadow DOM and interoperability. Other advantages of Aurelia include:

  • Web pack v2 support
  • New Chrome Debugger
  • Hot module reloads
  • CLI Enhancements
  • HTML template validation
  • VS code plugin enhancements
  • Clean syntax


So these are some of the popular JavaScript frameworks available for use in present times. When it comes down to selecting one of these, we cannot say that a particular framework is the best. As you can see from the above list, each and every framework has its own characteristic feature and advantages. Selecting one from them depends upon the need for a project and developer’s preference.
