Undoubtedly, JavaScript’s (JS) popularity among the developer community has grown enormously over the years. The reason is its ability to allow developers to design and modify web pages in numerous ways and even add functionalities to web apps real-time. JavaScript is gathering attention not just for its simplicity and ease of use but also due to what it brings to the table — Efficiency, Security, and Low-cost results.

At the same time, advancing technologies are pushing techies to add new skills to their repository for JS. Here we have listed top 3 best JavaScript frameworks that you must keep an eye on, in 2018:

1. Vue.js

  • Introduced in 2014, Vue.js is an open-source progressive JS framework to build UI on the web.
  • It offers two-way data binding (like Angular JS).
  • A better choice for quick development of cross-platform solutions.
  • It can power high-end single page applications (SPAs).
  • It is a unique blend of React, Ember, and Angular.
  • It is claimed to be faster and leaner as compared to React and Angular 2.0.
  • If you have the basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, getting started with Vue won’t be a problem.

2. React

  • It was designed by a developer’s team from Facebook in 2013.
  • It is a flexible, declarative, and an efficient JS library for building UI.
  • Even Instagram uses the same UI which further backs the framework as “efficient” within a dynamic high-traffic application.
  • Though it has a high learning curve, a smooth data flow and simple display logic within make app development easily understandable.

3. AngularJS

Managed by a team of Google, the Angularjs Development framework is built for speedy and agile work.

  • Angular.js — It is often referred to as an MVW (Model-View-Whatever) framework and a right fir for start-ups and mid-sized companies. Its benefits include smart-quick coding, two-way data binding (backend changes are reflected immediately on the UI), and easy testing.
  • Angular2 — It is available to developers with a long list of features that empower them to build anything and everything. Its benefits include improved dependency injection, active logging service, inter-component messages and more. Angular2 is suitable for large organizations strict programming environments who prefer high standards for code readability.
  • Angular4 — With this release, applications are made to consume less space (can reduce generated code for components by 60%) and work faster than ever before. Developers can apply codes in debug mode and creation mode too. Angular 5 was released around a month ago. Though it is feature-pack awesome, let’s wait for some more time for its best reviews.


Taking a call on a right-fit JavaScript framework can be puzzling. However, remember, it is not just limited to the number of features that frameworks can offer. You need to check your project requirements, general framework functionality, company’s long terms goals, and how you’re planning to apply it in each particular case.
