Frameworks come with a pre-built set of features that help reduce development time and make the development process less tedious. Some people understand frameworks as a template that handles multiple programming patterns.
For instance, every time you build a web application, you don’t need to write code for every single feature from scratch. Instead, you can build upon an existing feature set provided in the framework.
Making React unique is its ability to take a lot of heavy lifting out of the coding process while making the code easier to read, comprehend, and function.
Benefits of using React
Virtual DOM: Virtual DOM (Document Object Model) is a representation of the original DOM object. Whenever any modifications happen in the web app, the entire UI is re-rendered in the virtual DOM representation helping us build apps faster, more efficiently, and with creative transitions, ensuring less buggy code.
Declarative: React’s declarative nature quickly updates and render the right components when data changes. The declarative approach makes the code readable and easy to debug while engineering interactive UI for websites and mobile applications.
One-way data-binding: Components are supposed to be immutable, and the data within them cannot be changed. Facebook has designed React to follow unidirectional data flow, AKA one-way data binding to make the application more flexible and efficient.

Benefits of using Angular
Templates: Angular’s built-in templates provide powerful syntax to create UI views. In simple words, it is a massive time-saving technology for front end development.
Cross-Platform: We often use Angular for cross-platform development. It offers us modern web platform capabilities to deliver progressive web apps -like experiences such as fast page loading, zero-step installation, offline usability, etc.
Intelligent Testing: Protractor is an open-source testing framework for Angular that makes our scenario tests run faster and more stable.

Benefits of using Vue.js
Template: Identical to Angular.js, Vue also provides HTML-based templates that bind the DOM with the Vue.js instant data. It helps us use the render functions and replace the template with the render function for productive web development with unnecessary code reproduction.
MVVM Architecture: Vue.js has Model-View-View-Model architecture that helps in enhancing the UI experience. MVVM helps simplify user interface event-driven programming, which results in improved system performance.

Benefits of using Meteor.js
Full Stack Solution: Meteor proves to be a self-reliant framework for developing and deploying powerful web applications. It has built-in reactive templates, automatic CSS, JS modifications on the production server, helpers, templates, and events. Moreover, Meteor’s cloud platform – GALAXY, helps in deploying, scaling, and monitoring client applications rapidly.
Time-Saving Packages: Meteor brings different innovative packages to create the system’s front-end. These smart packages help us speed up writing applications, automatic compilation, and bootstrap integration. These packages are genuinely smart. For instance, when we add the code to build a user account system, it automatically adds a smart package to the project to undertake any time-taking task such as signing up users using different templates.
Huge Community: Meteor.js offers Crater – a Reddit like site to help us stay updated on what’s trending and upcoming in Meteor. The framework is backed by a massive community of supportive developers, offering detailed documentation, resources, tools that have helped JS Panther many times.

Benefits of using Ember.js
Giant Ecosystem: Ember presents a massive selection of over 1,500 addons, most of which can be installed in one line. These addons are well-optimized to handle common instances of internal complexity such as managing authentication, authorization, abstracting away common patterns, and OAuth authentication.
Highly Stable: The release of Ember 2.0 brought the idea of stability without stagnation into reality. Ember is backwards-compatible so that upgrading won’t damage apps built with earlier versions of the framework. Besides, Ember.js release new yet stable versions every six weeks.
Top brands using Ember.js
Netflix, TED, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitch, Fitbit
While this list may change over time, it’s essential to stay up-to-date on the latest technologies and trends to succeed as a developer or an agency.
