What is the frontend of a web application?

The frontend of a web application can best be described as what you can see visually. At its core are the fundamental web languages; HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Over the past decade, hundreds of successful libraries and frameworks have been developed to speed up development of those core languages.

Let’s dive into the most “popular” before we get into the most “modern”. Bootstrap is an HTML / CSS / JavaScript framework whose goal is to templatize typography, forms, grids, etc. According to a survey done by w3techs, Bootstrap is used by 19.7% of the internet making it the most popular frontend framework. jQuery is a JavaScript library whose goal is development efficiency. According to a survey done by w3techs, jQuery is used by 77.4% of the internet making it the most popular JavaScript library on the internet.

Most people would make the assumption that because they are the most popular then they are the right choice for the job. No. There are several variables involved with making that kind of decision. You could either be overkilling your web project or not providing it the modern technology it requires. Developing using either of those frameworks also introduces issues such as development speed and confusing code.

Let’s go over the most modern frontend frameworks in today’s world.

Whew. There’s the numbers. These are only a few of the most active discussions on the internet. There are several factors that make these the most modern frontend frameworks out there right now. Code maintainability, app performance, and development efficiency. The developer pool should also be a major consideration.
