When it comes to website design & development, the best thing is that ‘everything is up to you.’ And, one thing for sure, if you are struggling, all you need is to take a break for now. Or just re-read the material more often.
On the other hand, its usage has now extended to mobile app development, desktop app development, and game development.

A Sample Illustration:
You can even start building without any schematics, but that approach would be incredibly time-consuming and doesn’t make a lot of sense. It’s more likely that you would purchase pre-manufactured building materials (wood, bricks, countertops, etc.) and then assemble them. Based on a blueprint to fit your specific needs.
Coding Is Very Similar!
Example Frameworks Include:
- Angular, React, jQuery, Vue.js, Ext.js, Ember.js, Meteor.js,
- Mithril.js, Node.js, Polymer.js, Aurelia, Backbone.js, etc.
JS libraries like jQuery are used by plugging library code into the rest of your site’s code when needed. If you want to use a jQuery template for an autocomplete feature, for instance, you would insert the appropriate jQuery code. It then retrieves the feature from the jQuery library and displays it on your user’s web browser.
In other words, when a front-end developer uses a library like jQuery, the developer is using jQuery code to “call” the jQuery library, which then provides the requested content. When you’re trying to define a framework in the context of library vs framework, think of it like this:
When you use JS frameworks the process is more holistic — a framework doesn’t just offer an individual solution to a coding problem, it provides a structure (like a skeleton or a scaffolding…or a framework) that organizes the parts of your site where the framework is implemented.
While some frameworks are designed to live underneath all of your site or web app’s code, other frameworks — like the increasingly popular Vue (see below)—allow for incremental use. This means you can apply the framework to as much or as little of your website or web app as you want.
And as more frameworks have adopted this incremental model, JS frameworks have become an increasingly flexible way to provide structure when appropriate. While still giving front-end developers the freedom to hand-code when necessary.
But, one of the confusing things about JS frameworks is that there isn’t one be-all, end-all JS framework to learn and use. And at any given time there are a handful of widely-used popular frameworks reflecting the latest JS trends and innovations.
They do so from the coding site GitHub each year and then publish their findings. In 2017, the most popular JS frameworks were Vue, React, and Angular — a trio of JS frameworks that give a good overview of the framework skills employers are looking for.
Vue is a framework that was released in 2014 but has become increasingly popular over the last few years. In 2017, Vue’s star ranking (user “likes”) on GitHub reached 40,000 (up from 26,000 in 2016). Allowing it to vault into the number one spot ahead of second-place React (at 28,000 stars).
According to data collected by programming Q&A forum Stack Overflow, jobs targeting developers with React skills grew more than 150 percent on their job boards between 2015 and 2016.
And just like Vue, React is designed for incremental implementation. Meaning it’s another tool that lets you use it as little or as much as you need. It also comes with a reputation for having a supportive developer community.
Finally, Angular is a complete 2016 rewrite of the Google-backed framework AngularJS. At number three on bestofjs’ 2017 list, an “Angular jobs” search on Indeed brings up over 14,000 job listings as of this writing. Angular has a somewhat steeper learning curve than frameworks like Vue.
Since it uses a framework-specific JS variant language called TypeScript. After all, you’ll also have to get familiar with it if you want to learn Angular. But, as you can see from the job listings, it’s a preferred standard for many employers.
Like photo slideshows, animated graphics, and interactive forms — thus, it needs to be high on your list of front-end development skills to learn.
