Back-End VS Front-End Framework | 6 J.S. Frameworks Experts Love

Hello, Learner Welcome to Front-End framework VS Back-End framework Blog

In the last few years, JavaScript plays a very vital role in the field of Web application development. Many of the modern developers are switching to JavaScript and choosing the language as the main language to develop web applications. In fact, According to StackOver Flow JavaScript is the second most WANTED language it implies that it is a very popular and powerful language.

"If you are learning code and want to make a full-time career as a web developer JavaScript should be the first priority between other programming languages."

Now if you have learned JavaScript you may have heard the phrases “Front-end” and “Back-end” framework. You might be wondering what is it, why we need this when we have the most powerful atomic bomb i.e. JavaScript, how it will help us, and many more things. If you are a newbie it’s totally a new word for you. Don’t worry we try to understand from the basic concepts.

What is JavaScript Frameworks?

JavaScript frameworks are application frameworks that are written in JavaScript language. It is pre-written code that all the programmers especially developers use for their bizarre persistence such as designing the websites to make websites further responsive, make the website more attractive, add some more features, etc. Because of this most website developers prefer to use frameworks. Frameworks make their work more relaxed and more constant.

Why we need JavaScript Frameworks?

To make your work easier. Web Developers always try to write less code and make websites more effective. So for that Frameworks helps you by providing pre-written codes and ready-to-use functions. Developers can use these functions for creating their own functions and use them whenever they needed, and many more things which quite save time. So Frameworks play a hugely vital role in designing Web pages.

But our primary concern is: What is the “Front-end” and “Back-end” framework? Which framework should I learn first whether it is front-end or back-end? What are the top 3 frameworks to learn?

I have already discussed The 7 Best outstanding JavaScript Frameworks to use in 2021 if you want to check it out.

Let’s get started

Following are the points we will discuss:

  1. What is a Front-End?
  2. What is a Back-End?
  3. How Web developers started using J.S. frameworks
  4. Top 3 Frontend and Backend JavaScript framework
  5. FAQ
  6. Conclusion

What is a Front-End?

In simple words, front-end manages the part of the website or application which user can see by their naked eye and interact with the website and perform some specific tasks. It is also known as the “Client-side” of the applications. The front-end is all about changing the layout of the website by changing styles and appearances to fulfill the needs of the users.

Activities such as text colors and styles, images, graphs and tables, buttons, navigation menu are performed on the website.

The front-end part is mainly developed by HTML (for basic page structure and content), CSS (for visual editing), and JavaScript (for making websites interactive).

  1. HTML– It stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is used to design the structure of the web pages. With the help of Headings, images, navigation bars, etc we can easily establish a beautiful website. You can easily check the HTML of all the websites by just right click of the mouse and go to page source you will get all the HTML tags( it will look complicated).
  2. CSS– CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It is used to give a beautiful design to your web page. With the help of font size, color, font family, background images, etc. you can build a beautiful website so it’s up to you how amazing a website you can make.
  3. JavaScript– As you know J.S. is used for the development of web pages.

Now you have to familiarize yourself with the front-end frameworks such as React, Angular, Vue. I have already discussed each and every framework in a very detailed way.

What is a Back-End?

It is that part of the website which a user can’t interact or we can say the backstage of the website. The back-end is also known as a “server-side” of the applications. It is mainly used to develop the backend configuration of the website. The activities such as collecting data, writing APIs, creating libraries all are done in the back-end. Still, there is a lot more to the back-end than just controlling the overall functionality of an app or a website.

The back-end part is mainly developed by some popular programming languages such as JavaScript, Java, Python, C++, PHP, etc. Not only me most of the developers will recommend you to start with JavaScript.

How Web developers started using J.S. frameworks

To understand how modern web developers are started using frameworks we have to go to the history of JavaScript. JavaScript is developed by Brendan Eich in 1995. At that time JavaScript is used as a client-side language. As we already know that JavaScript runs on the browser so we need something which can change JavaScript code to Machine code.

And that’s how the concept of the JavaScript engine comes. JavaScript engine helps to convert JavaScript code to Machine code. Now basically we have so multiple browsers and every browser has its own JavaScript engine. Well, we talk about the chrome JavaScript engine i.e. V8. It helps to convert the code much faster than any other engine. Now people thought that JavaScript becomes much faster so why not we can use JavaScript not only in the browser but also in mobile and desktop applications or on the server-side. and that’s how the framework is started developing and thanks to the developers we have so many options to choose the frameworks. And this way framework has started using on the web as well as in mobile applications.

Top 3 Frontend and Backend JavaScript framework

There are so many Front-end JavaScript frameworks, it becomes very challenging for front-end developers to pick the right tool for an appropriate development project.

Following are the top 3 front-end framework:

  1. React
  2. Angular
  3. Vue.js

For detailed information I have already made a lot of article on these frameworks. You can check-out of them.

Whereas choosing the perfect back-end framework is essential to assure the success of the application.

Following are the top 3 Back-end framework:

  1. Express
  2. Meteor
  3. Next.js

FAQ

1. What is backend vs frontend developer?

Ans:- Front-end developers are responsible for updating company pages, customizing layouts, adding animated elements, ensuring accessibility, and many more. Whereas Back-end developers are responsible for web application logic and integrationBack-end developers are usually writing the web services and APIs used by front-end developers and mobile application developers.

2. What is the salary of Front-end and Back-end developers?

Ans:- The average salary of a Front-end Developer is approx. 5-6 lakhs per annum. And it will be increased or decrease due to different factors. Whereas the average salary of a Back-end developer is approx. 7-8 lakhs per annum.

3. What is more difficult to learn Front-end or Back-end framework?

Ans:- It’s a very important question for the newbies that is easier to learn. If your goal is to become a full-stack web developer you have to master both of them. Start with the Front-end part it’s quite easy to understand for beginners. and then learn the Back-end part.

Conclusion

Currently, JavaScript is one of the most rising and trending programming languages for Web Development across the world.

Choosing a perfect JavaScript framework is probably the best thing you have done for your project. The frameworks are very flexible and efficient to build any applications.

In my opinion, I am using React as the Front-end framework and Express as the Back-end framework for Web development. You can choose any one of them.
