This blog post is an accumulation of our thoughts concerning frontend development tendencies for this year and beyond. We expect that you will not only read this content but find something to adopt in your projects. Enjoy and share our fascination!
The High and the Mighty JS Frameworks
Apart from ReactJS, AngularJS and Vue.js frameworks can be distinguished. The first one is famous for two-way data binding, fast prototyping, and a supportive community because Google is responsible for the maintenance of the framework. The second one is focused on concise and fast UIs and provides easy access.
If you would like to know more about the rising stars in the firmament of frameworks, pay attention to Svelte, which was a breakthrough of 2020 for many developers. The main idea of Svelte is to reduce bundle size and save frame budgets when you build a web app.
The Gatsby Way of Building
Let’s admit that Single Page Apps have captivated the minds of tech-savvy people all over the world due to their ability to make the web more dynamic and responsive. They work within a browser and don’t need to reload a page while interacting with its content. However, it creates obstacles for SEO that is an important instrument of online business.
There is a way out, though. Some bright minds decided to create a solution to get SPAs indexed. That is exactly what Gatsby does. Gatsby is a static website generator for developing web apps and providing speed, safety, and visibility for search engine crawlers. It is based on React and was named the most demanded static website generator.
Jamstack to not Worry About Backend
Frontend developers can work undisturbed, without worrying about the backend part, due to the Jamstack architectural principles. The built applications are empowered by Vue and React, which are mentioned here. One-third of the State of Frontend survey respondents declare that they have already created a solution with the help of Jamstack. Therefore, its further expansion is a question of time.
Micro Frontends for Cohesion
The idea of micro frontends is that self-standing teams can own separate features of a website or a web application. Every team has a certain specialization and responsibility for the end-to-end delivery in their area of responsibility.
With the help of micro frontends we get cohesive and mobile codebases for scalable web solutions. Instead of cracking hard and big nuts, we decompose the goal into separate tasks for separate teams. This approach lets us enrich the ultimate solution and optimize the resources to be used.
