Which JavaScript Framework is Best for You?

A JavaScript framework has become one of the preferred backbones in building a website. As it would be nigh on impossible to evaluate all of the available JavaScript platforms, Mitrais chose only five of the leading JavaScript Frameworks to be assessed for this special report: AngularJS, ReactJS, Ember.js, Aurelia.js, and Vue.js.

To determine the best option for this category, Mitrais used more than twenty criteria, some of them are listed below.

The Availability of Tools looks at how many tools, packages and implementation are associated with each library, including the Starter Kits, Testing Tools, Build and Deploy Tools, and Debugging Tools.

Another criteria is the completeness of the Application Program Interface (API) documentation and quick start guides.

Product Support is important as an indicator of how much support a developer is likely to get in case of issues, in the form of availability of blogs, tutorials, sponsored educational content, or mentoring from the product’s core team.

Ease of Adoption evaluates how quickly a user can become proficient in using the application.

Templating analyses how well reusable components can be rendered in each framework, from both the client and server sides.

Ease of development refers to the complexity of managing a team utilizing each framework. Some frameworks are more oriented towards isolated components, while others require more connected architecture.

The performance when loading tables of data and performing rapid updates is measured under Performance/Page Rendering.

The popularity of each framework, based on how many people are using it and its presence in Stack Overflow, is measured as Uptake by Developers.

Initial Learning Curve analyses the complexity of initial project scaffolding set up.

Upward and Backward Compatibilities also need to be addressed as there have been cases where updates made by some framework’s libraries are not compatible with the previous versions.

Another criteria is the Isomorphic JavaScript, a new term that is ascribed to websites that can render server side or client side. This is useful when the complexity of the User Experience increases.

The Size is the amount of information that needs to be loaded into a framework for it to function. Scalability gauges the framework’s ability to cope with the website application’s possible growth while Maintainability measures the ease and speed with which a system can be restored to operational status after a failure occurs.

Extensive research and experience led to the conclusion that ReactJS is the platform Mitrais would recommend. The platform is superior to the others due to its smaller size, well-developed state handling libraries, and better native integration capabilities. Moreover, ReactJS developers can implement React Native, a library with similar syntax used in developing mobile applications.

Its popularity means a large number of information-sharing communities are available to developers. In addition, the ReactJS framework makes building both mobile and web applications using the same API possible, a fact that makes this framework more attractive to developers.
