The Future of Frameworks

Frameworks are a vital web design tool for every web designer when developing the perfect website. There is now a wide variety of frameworks and libraries that meet the majority of needs for web designers to achieve many slick and unique platforms. The future of frameworks is constantly evolving. In the last number of years, we have seen a great shift in the development of web design, however this has not always been the case.

Back as far as 2005, Mocha (a new scripting language) was created and was then renamed as LiveScript and then renamed again to what we all know it as today – JavaScript. The JavaScript framework has come a long way since then. By 2016, 92% of all websites were using the JavaScript main frameworks Angular, React and Vue – which are all expected to develop more capabilities into the future.


Angular

Angular is a fully developed web framework by Google which is used by many gloabal brands and websites. It enables developers to separate work on the same app section while working off the same set of data. It is also well rewarded for its excellent documentation and the build in support available for TypeScript. Some downsides to Angular would be that it constantly requires many updates meaning there is an added pressure for web designers to be able to keep adapting. For the future of Angular, we can expect to see Ivy as the default complier in Angular 9. This will support web designers with current problems they may be experiencing with file size and performance, making applications smaller in size, simpler and faster.


React

The React framework was released by Facebook and mainly used to create and design web interfaces. The most popular users of this framework would be Netflix and PayPal for example. JSX is very easy to write within this framework and their updates don’t tend to compromise user stability. A known drawback from React would be its requirements for third party libraries when a developer wants to create more intricate apps. This can leave many developers in the dark at times. React is always evolving and we can expect to see new updates which will allow apps to be more responsive, meaning designers can prioritise blocks of work which allows them to focus on high priority areas with greater ease.


Vue

Vue was developed by an ex-Google employee and gained a great reputation for itself without being backed by big brands. Vue is very easy to use, comes with a great community and is usually the go to for most beginner web designers. However some feel it has no real structure and can only go so far. Vue vows to become more maintainable for its users with a greater emphasis on speed, size and agility. The future of frameworks predicts great levels of evolvement and growth which is an encouraging sign in our current climate. Many designers have full confidence in these frameworks, and the key is to be able to evolve alongside them.
