Backend and Frontend – The Two Foundational Components of Native Mobile Apps and Web Apps. While the former fuels the app, the latter defines how the app would act when in users’ territory aka on users’ devices.
There was a time when a website or a mobile app was made of simple static text site with little scope of interaction with other websites and apps. And the only scope of innovativeness came from minimal animation that hovered on the screen. That was the time of HTML and CSS.

Doesn’t it make you wonder…
Flexibility – Straight from Angular Framework and React Framework to Vue and Node, all these frameworks are used for the development of mid to high complexity level apps.
Ease of Adaptability by Developers – As compared to the other frameworks, these come with a comparatively lower learning curve, which makes the mobile app development process much faster.
Let’s take a look into them at much length –
Vue.js was conceived with the sole aim to make the interface development organized and simpler. And it does it so perfectly that it is now deemed ideal for the development of lightweight apps.
But then, like all things seemingly ideal, Vue.js also comes with its share of pros and cons.
Here they are
Angular Framework keeps coming out with updates on a regular basis like Angular.js 6 comes with an improvement in the rendering engine for smaller and faster applications.
Nonetheless, the framework, like the others, do not come sans advantages and disadvantages. Here are its pros and cons –
The idea behind Node.js is using event driven I/O to help remain efficient and lightweight at time of development of data intensive real time apps, which operate across a series of distributed devices.
I am sure by now you must have become acquainted with the drill. So, keeping up with the trend, here we go –
Ember.js is ideal for development of complex web apps, and the string-based templating system that it comes with contributes to a much faster boot time.
In context of performance, every one of the changes that happen in database are then instantly transmitted to UI.
Currently, the framework is used for real time application development of companies like Mazda, Honeywell, and IKEA, amongst others.
Mithril.js has a series of similar features as React.js. Mithril offers you hierarchical MVC elements and various safe-by-default templates that come with intelligent DOM differences that goes into checking of high performance rendering.
The lightweight framework is designed to enable you to take complete advantage of the Web Components.
Polymer has the web components which are a part of HTML standards that promise longer existence as compared to ReactJS.

Using Backbone, you can make single page apps with the help of the traditional web libraries. They are developed on the idea that the server side functionalities should always flow via APIs as it minimizes the number of codes that should be composed for achieving the complex functionalities of sophisticated web app frameworks.
Socket allows you to implement real time binary streaming, interactive set of document collaboration, instant message platform, and the real time stats of project and apps.
The framework helps developers build rich and responsive display and an editor UI with clean underlying data model. Apps that have section of UI which update dynamically can benefit greatly from Knockout framework.
There are three features that come associated with Knockout, which contribute to framework’s popularity in the frontend development domain –
Declarative Bindings – The feature lets you offer complex and dynamic User Interface Development with the help of arbitrarily placed binding contexts.
Trivially Extensible – It lets you use custom behaviours as part of new bindings for convenient reuse.
