1. Angular JS
Angular is an open source framework powered by Google. This popular enterprise framework is both god for developing and maintaining complex applications; it also works for small and simple web apps. Companies using it are as diverse as Domino’s Pizza, Ryanair, iTunes Connect, PayPal Checkout, Google etc. Angular describes itself as an extension to HTML for building complex web apps. If you are familiar with TypeScript, it is also how Angular 2 was written.
Angular is an MVC-type framework, which means that it offers two-way data binding between views and models. It allows for an automatic update on both sides whenever a data alters. What is also great about this framework is that you can build reusable View Components.
Angular. Great for both huge enterprise projects and simple applications. Build big front-end web applications and hold all processes in a single framework.
React focuses entirely on V in MVC and disregards the architecture of the rest of the application. Its component layer makes creating and combining together UI elements much easier. . It abstracts the DOM away so that it optimizes rendering and allows you to render React from node.js. This platform also implements a one-way reactive data flow that simplifies the usage if comparing to other frameworks. It can also make an advantageous collaboration with Angular or Ember.
React. Works best if your main interest is a View layer or if you want a View layer to go with your Angular, Backbone or Ember application. It also can help build an isomorphic web framework.
This framework might not be that popular when compared with React and Angular, but it has some useful peculiarities. EmberJS is the framework for those who focus on conventions rather than configurations. If you have complex nested routes and templates within a page, Ember with its robust routing will be a perfect candidate to go. Ember is also an MVC framework. It includes patterning and view engine that automatically updates when data changes, just like Angular, Backbone, and React. Using Ember is good when you are short on time and on a tight budget – it created applications that just work without any external features.
Ember. The framework that just works. No excessive tools or flexibility. Great for tight budgets and hard deadlines.
Backbone provides a full MVC framework along with routing. The Models allow for key-value binding and events for handling data changes. Models (and Collections) can connect to RESTful APIs. The Views have declarative event handling while the router is great for handling a URL and state management. Backbone gives you everything to build a Single Page Application without unnecessary complexity.
Backbone. Works perfectly for simple and overly responsive web applications; yet can be used ambitious projects.
There are approximately no developers that are not aware of jQuery. This framework is solely responsible for making cross-browser sites a reality and for overall enhance of the modern web. The mission of jQuery Foundation is “to improve the open web, making it accessible for everyone, through the development and support of open source software, and collaboration with the development community.” This framework has literally limitless possibilities to provide developers with: making DOM traversal, event handling, animation, and many others across all browsers.
jQuery. Useful for literally everything. Requires advanced development skills to operate it.
Even though this framework is relatively new, we have already tested it – and we were amazed by its ease-of-use and great performance. CanJS works excellent of you have to render lots of view binding. We assume it will take some time for this framework tom gather a proper community support and a sufficient learning material base. Likewise, CanJS needs Zepto libraries to work properly.
CanJS. Great in case if you need to render lots of view binding. Zapto libraries are required to operate this framework.
Babylon.js. Great for building complex 3D scenes of any kind or video games with incredible physics, audio, and particle systems.
