Choosing the one that is the best fit for a project depends on what the project requirements are. What works for one team and project will not work for all. At NIX we have an in-depth familiarity with many of these popular frameworks. We asked a small team of 90+ NIX developers what they believed were the best frameworks. We’re going to give you some information on the ones they believe are the most significant right now.
Developers need to have an understanding of the cost of their tools. Most of the popular JS frameworks are open source. This lets developers build robust apps and websites in a very cost-effective manner.
React.JS by Facebook
This is one of the newer frameworks in our list. Developed by Facebook it was released in 2013 and quickly became a very popular choice for developers. It is obviously used on two of the biggest social networks around – Facebook and Instagram – but it is also used on a host of other recognizable sites like Netflix, Paypal, Dropbox, and the BBC.
React lets you create large web applications that can update on the fly without a reload is required. This is really important and added to that benefit is the fact that it allows you to manage view layers for web and mobile apps. React lets you use lots of different tools when developing to further extend its functionality. Some of these libraries include Redux, MobX, Fluxy, Fluxible and Reflux JS.
We had an opportunity to use React.JS with an organization called CarSoup. CarSoup is an online marketplace that connects sellers and over 20,000 car dealerships throughout the USA with qualified buyers. Buyers can search new and used vehicles and across a variety of different makes and styles.
NIX helped build a stable high-performing site for CarSoup that offered a user-friendly car-buying environment for CarSoup customers. In addition, NIX implemented the SPA (Single Page App) using React.JS and completed the integration of different third-party platforms to improve reporting and analytics.
Angular Empowers Faster Development
Angular is Google progeny and is an excellent tool for web applications and websites. It is open-source and is one of the top tools for building single-page applications. Angular is an excellent solution for dynamic web applications as well as hybrid mobile apps. As one of the most popular JS frameworks, Angular has a robust ecosystem with four different data libraries and support in IDEs.
At NIX we get a chance to use lots of different technologies and one of our top picks is Angular. The client has an intelligent platform that offers digital labor powered by Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence(AI), and Cloud Computing to automate administrative back-office processes that work exactly like a human.
Using Angular, NIX was able to create a stable modularity process and plug-in application system. An integration with openwork cognitive servers and automation of platform deployment helped to solve business complexities.
Node.JS – An Extensive Ecosystem
Node.JS is free, lightweight and efficient and runs on multiple operating systems like Windows, Linux and macOS. With Node.JS apps don’t require data buffering which is something companies like Walmart, Uber and Paypal put into good effect.
We used Node.JS when we built out a trading platform with another client. This platform helps empower financial advisors. Specifically, it lets them handle investment portfolios for their clients and supervises the overall trading system.
The individual portfolio models are created by investment managers. These managers then post the portfolios on the web as a service to their clients. Clients who use the model outside of the services provided are charged separately. The NIX team realized API and backend with the help of Node.JS ensuring high load of data, realtime configurations and scalability.
