The success of a web or mobile application depends on its usability and acceptance among its users. Any enterprise-level application should have an interactive interface that can benefit its users, and front-end development enables enterprises to fulfil this goal. Today, there are many frameworks available in the market to power your front-end development efforts.
This white paper explains the significance of the frameworks that support front-end development, how they help in improving your application’s interface, and make it intuitive and appealing to your users. We will also explore the leading front-end development frameworks in the web and mobile domains.
"You can’t innovate on products without first innovating the way you build them."
Any web or mobile application should be built for its user, and it should be easy to use, modern, solid, intuitive, and user-friendly. The key to the success of your application lies in choosing the effective front-end development framework, since front-end is the point at which your user interacts with your application.
Today, businesses approach front-end development with a lot of expectations; to enhance user experience by improving the interaction, intuitiveness, appearance, performance, and efficiency of their applications. This white paper discusses the significance of front-end development and takes a tour of the leading front-end development frameworks in the market.
A web application runs on three major components: the server, the database, and the client.
Client refers to the browser that a person uses to view a web application. This is where the client-side technology is used. Server is at a remote location that hosts the data and runs a web application’s back-end architecture. The server processes the requests and returns the pages to the browser. In other words, client-side scripting is executed by a browser, whereas server-side scripting is executed by a web server.
Front-end (client-side) scripts are embedded in the web application’s HTML markup code that is hosted on the server. The code is compiled to communicate effectively with the browser, and hence is designed to be compatible with the browser. Front-end scripting is evolving to become simpler and easier to use, making the applications faster and more efficient.
