What is a client-side framework?
A client-side framework is a software development framework that focuses on executing application processes on end user devices rather than the application's own server. Among others, a primary benefit of client-side frameworks is their ability to help developers circumvent the challenges of writing native application code for multiple device and OS types.
Here is a list of some of the most popular client-side frameworks:
With Angular, developers can build front-end-based apps without using any other plugins or frameworks. Websites such as Netflix have been built using Angular.
Backbone's main benefit is that it separates business logic and user interface. This means developers can easily make changes to the application logic without affecting the user interface and vice versa. Since Backbone is lightweight and flexible, it can be used with any back-end language or front-end template.
Cordova is an open source mobile application development framework backed by Apache. It allows standard web languages to be wrapped and presented as native mobile applications. Cordova is widely used by companies like Oracle, SAP and IBM. it provides web applications with Node-API that maps standard web languages to native functionality, such as a phone's GPS, camera and accelerometer.
Cordova allows developers to build their applications using standard web languages while still being able to access functionality using native code, as well as market their apps on native app stores.
Vue is a progressive framework developers can use to build user interfaces. The core library is focused on the view layer only and can be easily picked up and integrated with other libraries or existing projects. When used with modern tooling and supporting libraries, Vue can power sophisticated single-page applications.
