The tech stack a company chooses can affect its level of success.
It can take a long time and a lot of effort to create websites and apps. The elements that all websites and web apps share are utilised by frameworks for websites and web applications.
This definition enables a very literal interpretation of the framework. A framework also acts as a skeleton for the general support and outer framing of a house. Software frameworks follow the same rules.
When incorporating code from frameworks, libraries are less comprehensive. Frameworks offer an entire template for creating applications, rather than just one solution. The advantages are efficiency improvement and organisation.
Frameworks:Why are they needed?
We’ve talked about the environment that influenced framework creation, but we haven’t talked about the motivation behind it. Before examining the why, it is necessary to first analyse the challenges in software development.
Let’s take the creation of a to-do list as an illustration; in later chapters, we’ll implement this using a variety of frameworks. While the programme transmits and updates data, users should be able to complete actions including producing a task list, adding a new task, and deleting a task. In software development, this fundamental data are referred to as states.
Theoretically, achieving each of our objectives separately is straightforward. Iterating over data allows for rendering, adding objects allows for the creation of new tasks, and using identifiers allows for task discovery, editing, and deletion. When we consider that the application must enable the user to perform all of these actions via the browser, some gaps start to show. The fact that we have to refresh the user interface each time our programme changes states is the underlying source of our issue.
Only one function in our to-do list software serves as an example of how challenging this issue is: presenting the tasks list.
Consider the characteristics you will require during development when choosing a framework for your application because each framework has a different set of functionality. Along with the features, other factors to take into account include complexity, learning curves, documentation, and community support.
