Frameworks are an important part of modern website development approach. But, hold on…!
What is a framework? A Framework is a compilation of programming rules, and algorithms which provide a standard environment for coding. A framework provides an easy, and manageable solution for specific coding issues. It provides compiled libraries, and standardized code in the form of structured folder and files.
There are two major components of a website i.e. front-end (text, pictures, basic layout, tables etc.), and back-end or logical part (data fetching techniques, response management, session creation and expiration etc.).
There are various categories of frameworks. Each type of framework deals with a different component of the website. Thinking about framework types, right?
Frameworks are of two type i.e. Front-end frameworks and back-end frameworks. A framework, protects the developer from a lot of hard coding. It enhances, clarity and code reusability.
Front-end is, what a user sees, when he/she opens a website. Therefore, it is very important to create a compelling and attractive layout. Front-end frameworks provide an easy to use environment to programmers, with better understanding and improved development experience.
Some Examples of Front-end Website Development Languages and Frameworks:
Bootstrap is a powerful frond-end development framework. It is an advance technology. It is designed to provide better website compatibility for different screen sizes. This is a best framework to develop a website which provides better readability and operational view to its users at different screen resolutions.
Foundation is another brand for development of responsive websites. It provides developers, better control over User Interface (UI) Development. It offers multiple templates. These templates are very helpful in front-end development. Also, designers use these templates for getting an idea about structure and color combination for their websites.
Grid Systems is a great addition to a website. Grid Systems allow designer to choose a better and suitable layout for their websites. Grid systems only deals with grid management, as it is an important part of a website. These are very easy to understand and simple to use. Highly recommended for beginner and inexperience developers.
These frameworks deal with activities that a user doesn’t see. Is it confusing? Let’s try another way! These frameworks actually handle back-end processes and manage various activities to enhance user comfort. These are important for a website, because these frameworks greatly affect the loading speed, response time on a click, time and speed management during data fetching from a database etc.
Some Examples of Back-end Development Languages a Frameworks:
There are many languages which are used to develop back-end or logical part of website. PHP and JAVA are the most common languages. PYTHON and RUBY are relatively new but very powerful. All these languages allow a developer to enhance security of their website.
Symfony is a framework of PHP. It allows user to develop power web apps with greater security and compatibility. It is a freeware software and therefor is very famous among developers. Spring, Ruby on Rails and Django etc. are also very common and popular back-end development frameworks.
