Here’s a list of frameworks I’ll be covering in this blog:
Below I’ve listed a few key features of Aurelia:
- Multiple language support:
Aurelia’s APIs are carefully designed to be consumed naturally from both today’s and tomorrow’s most useful web programming languages. Aurelia supports ES5, ES2015, ES2016 and Typescript which is very helpful and gives you high flexibility
- Module framework: Rather than taking the monolithic framework approach, Aurelia is composed of smaller, focused modules. Use them together as a full-featured framework, or pick and choose to build a custom solution.
- Clean docs: Aurelia comes with a highly descriptive and helpful document set that aides all developers. It’s known for having a well-maintained documentation.
- Extensible HTML: Aurelia’s extensible HTML compiler lets you create custom HTML elements, add custom attributes to existing elements and control template generation, all with full support for dynamic loading, data binding and high-performance batched rendering.
Below I’ve listed a few key features of Polymer:
- Web components: Polymer is built on top of the
idea of web components. Web components are a set of w3c standards which consists of several different web technologies including custom elements. These components are a part of the browser so you don’t need any third party tools and libraries like jQuery.
- One-way and two-way data binding: It provides both one-way and two-way data binding. Polymer is designed to support data that flows in one direction as well as bidirectional.
Below I’ve listed a few key features of Meteor:
- Full stack: Meteor offers a full-stack solution for developing and deploying web applications. Meteor comes bundled with several built-in features, such as reactive templates, automatic CSS, etc.
- Real-time web apps: Meteor is the perfect solution for those looking to build real-time applications. All of the application’s layers from database to template update automatically. This means there is no need to refresh the page to see updates. And any changes to documents save instantly. This makes Meteor a perfect use-case for real-time collaboration.
Below I’ve listed a few key features of Ember:
- Ember cli: Ember and Ember-CLI are two different things entirely, but neither would be totally whole without the other. Ember-CLI is a command line utility that comes along with the Ember framework’s software stack. Ember-CLI is a productivity rocket ship, with support for tools like CoffeeScript, Handlebars, LESS, and Sass.
- Ember template: Built into Ember’s UI are Ember’s templates, which are written with the Handlebars templating language. Handlebars is named for its use of double curly brackets and it allows developers to use way less code. Templates make a lot of features possible in Ember, like Components, Outlets, and Expressions.
- CoC: The sole purpose of the convention is the speed and the “Get Stuff Done” philosophy which is a massive boost for the startups who always battle hard to outpace their competitors. Ember has well-defined best practices for how it is structured. This means developers can focus more on their apps’ functionality and unique features, and less on reinventing the wheel with tedious code. There’s more building, and less blueprinting.
Below I’ve listed a few key features of Node.js:
- Non-blocking: All APIs of Node.js library are asynchronous, that is, non-blocking. It essentially means a Node.js based server never waits for an API to return data. The server moves to the next API after calling it and a notification mechanism of Events helps the server to get a response from the previous API call.
- Single threaded: Node.js makes use of a single threaded model with event looping. The Event mechanism helps the server to respond in a non-blocking way, resulting in making the server highly scalable as opposed to traditional servers which create limited threads to handle requests. The single-threaded program used by Node.js can provide service to a much larger number of requests, as compared to traditional servers like Apache HTTP Server.
- Data streaming: NodeJS applications never buffer any data, they just output the data in the form of data chunks. This way NodeJS provides faster services.
Below I’ve listed a few key features of Backbone:
- Separated business and UI logic: The single most important thing that Backbone can help you with, is keeping your business logic separate from your user interface. When the two are entangled, change is hard. But when logic doesn’t depend on UI, your interface becomes easier to work with.
- Event-driven communication: When a project grows, the jQuery declarations and callbacks gets more complex. The code becomes more cluttered. Backbone.js overcomes this problem by providing an event-driven communication between views and models.
- Less code: Conventions are a great way to introduce a common coding style without the need of coming up with an extensive set of coding standards. The more you stick to backbone conventions the less you have to code, and in turn, the code becomes more standardized and readable.
- Syncing with backend: All thanks to its excellent support for RESTful APIs, the models in BackboneJS can be easily tied to a back-end. If the API is designed correctly, backbone is already configured to access these directly for read, write, and delete operations.
One of the oldest JS frameworks is the Jquery. This framework has been around for over 12 years and it’s still going strong. So, what is jQuery?
Below I’ve listed a few key features of jQuery:
- Cross-browser support: The jQuery has cross-browser support, and works well in IE 6.0+, FF 2.0+, Safari 3.0+, Chrome and Opera 9.0+, etc.
Below I’ve listed few key features of VueJS:
- Template: Vue.js offers HTML-based templates that bind the DOM with the Vue.js instance data. Vue.js compiles the templates into virtual DOM Render functions. A web developer can use template of the render functions and can replace the template with the render function.

Below I’ve listed a few key features of ReactJS:
- Virtual DOM: In React, for every DOM object, there is a corresponding “virtual DOM object.” A virtual DOM object is a representation of a DOM object, it creates a virtual copy of the original DOM. It’s a one-way data binding hence manipulating the virtual DOM is quick rather than updating the original DOM because nothing gets drawn onscreen.
- Unidirectional data flow: React.js is designed in such a manner that it will only support data that is flowing downstream, in one flow. If the data has to flow in another direction, you will need additional features.
- Components: In React everything is treated as components, thus you can easily import component supported by React, instead of coding or building an entire feature you can import it and make use of it.
Below I’ve listed few key features of Angular:
- MVC architecture: One of the most important features of AngularJS is the MVC or Model-View-Controller architecture. The MVC architecture is divided into three elements, i.e., the Model, View and Controller.
- Model: It is the lowest level of the MVC architecture where your data is stored.
- View: This element is responsible for showcasing all your data to the user.
- Controller: It is basically a software code that controls the entire interactions between the Model and View.
- Single page app: With AngularJS framework, you can build fully responsive single page apps that can easily fit different screen sizes perfectly. Plus, these apps are also capable of offering an improved user experience as compared to other web apps. Since the AngularJS-based single page apps are rendered on the client side, they reduce the network traffic by decreasing the load on the web sever
