1) AngularJS 2.0 & 1.x Top JavaScript Frameworks

2) ReactJS top JavaScript frameworks

One of other top JavaScript Frameworks in today’s time is ReactJS and again maintained by a reputed brand Facebook.  Be it it’s ability to perform good in SEO (surptisingly being part of JS family), Simpler JSX, Virtual DOM or powerful JavaScript library, ReactJS is a developer’s choice to build dynamic & high traffic web applications.

However, while comparing with AngularJS, ReactJS falls short in testing simplicity and component structure. Also needless to say, this does not make ReactJS to fall short from AngularJS.

3) Meteor.js

JavaScript is used as the universal scripting language in browsers on the client-side.  Using it on the back-end as well to save time and build expertise is one of he major ideas behind Meteor.js. Hence, front-end developer can also work on the back-end comfortably with Meteor without switching context between Ruby/Java/Python/PHP/ and whatnot JavaScript. It gives the flexibility to use “one language  everywhere.”

Also, Meteor is perfect for those who wants to build real time web apps. All of the app’s layers from database to template update automatically. This is how it works-

Hence, user does not need to refresh the page to see the updates. Just like what you see after commenting on a Linkedin post.

4) Node.JS

The main idea of Node.js is to use non-blocking, event-driven I/O to remain lightweight and efficient in the face of data-intensive real-time apps that run across distributed devices.  In simple words Node.JS is used for specific reasons to fill out particular needs.

It helps build scalable and fast network applications, as it’s capable of handling a large number of simultaneous connections with high throughput, which brings out high scalability. If you want an entire JavaScript environment fully featured with all the tools, Node.js development can be ideal for you.

5) EmberJS

Some amazing frameworks like Ember.js allows you to develop web applications easily with a faster pace. Ember.js is many developers’ first preference because of many reasons. One is Ember.js’s router allows you to stop breaking the web. With Ember, you get URLs and a default working back button with every route  created by you, and the API is easy to use.

Moreover, the combination of Ember.js and Rails provides you more freedom, flexibility and joy to code richer and more interactive web app.


6) Mithril.js

Mithril.js has few similar features like React.js. Mithril gives you hierarchical MVC components and safe-by-default templates with an intelligent DOM difference checking for high-performance rendering just like React. Moreover, Customizable data binding, and URL routing are two of the impressive features of Mithril.js.


7) Polymar.JS

Polymar is another JavaScript framework from Google. There is no doubt that the joy for developers in Polymar is much lesser than React.js still, there are many improvements made recently.  The material design components that come with Polymer have a very high quality.

Moreover, Polymer has web components that are part of the HTML standard which promises longer existence than ReactJS. Hence, there is a low chance for Polymer to get replaced in future by another framework.


8) Vue.js

After using Vue.js for a while, we decided to add it on this top JavaScript frameworks list in today’s time as well. There are few reasons for that. We saw, in many cases Vue.js is replacing Angular. It is a lightweight library with two way data binding and virtual DOM that doesn’t confuse you with tons of things and helps you with just what you need to develop a web app.
