Top Front-End Frameworks
Angular arguably has the most extended history of any on this list. Initially developed by Google in 2010, it was subsequently released as an open-source project. The framework consistently receives updates with significant releases typically delivered every six to nine months.
Many development groups will choose either Angular or React as the base foundation for their web applications. The logic makes sense, and both are mature. Both deliver applications that can run massive web apps, and both have strong communities where developers can share information.
The selling point for Vue is the size of the framework. At only 20KB, this is one of the most lightweight frameworks on the list. The inspiration for Vue came from work the original developer completed on Angular. In 2014, Vue was released as a slimmed-down alternative to Angular and has maintained a cult following ever since.
Ember is one of the younger frameworks on this list. Released in 2011, its focus is on helping you build complex web applications.
Svelte is the anti-framework framework. There are issues with some frameworks, such as a large codebase required to run scripts. Svelte, released in 2016, is driving the campaign to reduce the challenges of some traditional frameworks.
