If you were been in this JS framework world then you have the hint about these frameworks and you can at least debate which one is good in what aspect and with which to go with for any problem domain you have. But its 2K18 and if you have just started looking into these because of the buzz that has been created then it might be be really confusing and hard to take any decision to choose one.
This article is all about understanding this new world and the options that we have. I wont compare the frameworks in detail because you can easily find a lot of debate on a particular set instead I just try to highlight the trends and developers adaptability towards them. So lets begin !!
Using the Stack Overflow Trends tool lets take a look at some of the more prominent UI frameworks: Angular, React, Vue.js, Backbone, Knockout, and Ember.
Stack Overflow Trends lets us examine how each of these technologies has been asked about over time. We can start by looking at some of the larger frameworks.
There are various factors leads a developer to choose a particular front-end framework or another. Developers who primarily work with one programming language or technology may be more inclined to choose a certain UI framework. For instance, we might expect a NodeJS developer to choose a different framework than ones who work with PHP or even Java.
We can get a sense of this by breaking developers into groups based on the tag they most visit, and for each group examine the percentage of traffic that goes to each of these frameworks.
Angular and React are by far the most popular across the board, no matter the technology used. It makes sense that why they are the clear winners may be because supported by two of the biggest and most influential companies in tech. Just looking at those two frameworks, Angular is more visited than C#, Java, and (to a degree) PHP developers, whereas React is more popular with Rails, Node.js, and Python developers.
There are a couple of interesting observations when we look at some of the less popular tags. Ember.js and Ruby on Rails share a disproportionately strong relationship compared to other technologies. This marriage could be due to some of the philosophical similarities between the two frameworks. Ember was created by Yehuda Katz, a member of the Ruby on Rails core team. Due to this, both Ember and Ruby on Rails advocate a convention over configuration paradigm that make these two technologies complimentary and allow developers to quickly be productive without worrying about the nitty gritty configuration, until they need to.
Even though I have an inclination towards Angular, I am not advocating any framework in particular but like every technology choice, it’s not about what’s “hot”, but more about identifying trade offs and finding the tool for the particular problem you have. But let’s be honest, we can not ignore the size of a developer community because it certainly counts, it is the factor which make a framework active, adaptive and makes it easier to find help. The larger the community the quicker and easier to get help. Also having a support of a big tech company like Angular and React has certainly adds a significant amount of quality the way these frameworks are being presented and evolving.
Hope This might have helped you to get the gist of the current trend and to choose the right one for you. If yes then don’t forget to clap and follow on below links :
