5 Best JavaScript Frameworks in 2017

  • In the meanwhile, JavaScript web frameworks can become a silver bullet for quick web app development.
  • Angular.js is often referred to as an MVW (Model-View-Whatever) framework and among the top benefits, for startups and mid-sized companies, people name: quick code production, easy testing of any app part and two-way data binding (changes in the backend are immediately reflected on the UI).
  • As for now, it is reasonably called the most used JS framework for SPAs (Single-Page Applications) development and it boasts the largest community of developers.
  • Back in 2015 Ember was called the best javascript framework for web application, leaving behind React and AngularJS.
  • When it comes to quick web development or prototyping, JavaScript frameworks are among the most favorable and 2017 won’t become an exception.

JavaScript popularity continues its rising. In 2016 we’ve witnessed such great changes, as AngularJS entire upgrade and introduction of Angular 2, ultimate dominating of jQuery that is applied on 96.5% of all JS sites, evolution of ECMAScript, two updates of Node.js in April and October accordingly, React finest hours, and even more.  What to expect from 2017?

Make React Fast Again [Part 1]: Performance Timeline

Make React Fast Again [Part 1]: Performance Timeline @b_edelstein  #Javascript #Reactjs

  • Performance timelineReact 15.4.0 introduced a new performance timeline feature that lets you see exactly when components get mounted, updated, and unmounted.
  • While it is typical to have fairly deep component trees in React, if you are optimizing a component that is mounted frequently, it can help to reduce the number of wrapper components since each adds a small performance and memory penalty.One caveat here is that the timing numbers in the timeline are for the development build of React, which is much slower than prod.
  • Also, whether or not a component updates at all is not dependent on a prod build.Demo!For fun, I rigged the TodoMVC app to have some serious performance problems.
  • See if you can spot which components are causing the performance problems :)Debugging Performance Issues in ProductionThe performance timeline feature in React only works in local development, since it gets compiled out of React’s production build.
  • It lets you quickly see which components are updating, and which might be slowing down your app.Since react_perf only works in development, check out LogRocket, for diagnosing bugs and performance issues in production.

React is usually pretty fast, but it’s easy to make small mistakes that lead to performance issues. Slow component mounts, deep component trees, and unnecessary render cycles can quickly add up to an…
