Front-end frameworks in Web design are packages of files and folders created in standardized code to support the visual development of websites. Traditional website development focused on the complex logic and programming of the back-end of websites, but there has been a trend towards focusing on a front-end framework that is simple and user-friendly. Designing websites has never been easier because popular tools, frameworks and programming languages continue to be updated and released to the public.
Front-End Frameworks Components
Content management systems (CMSs), such as Drupal and WordPress, are popular because they are both written in PHP and easy to learn and deploy. WordPress used to be just a basic blogging platform, but is now a fully-fledged CMS framework that comes with extensive plugins that allow it to run any kind of website. Many freelance developers prefer to develop high quality WordPress themes and projects because of the cost and time savings. Drupal is full of popular web development tools, such as composer packages and templating engines.
Popular databases for the web development community include, Redis, MySQL, NoSQL, Postgres and RethinkDB. For example, Postgres has become a popular choice, because it is a relational database engine that is constantly upgraded with new features. The most traditional database of choice, MySQL, is still popular because it is an open source database system that is usually already installed in the hosting providers’ system. Traditional programs like MySQL are usually favored for content-rich back-end development projects. Finally, front-end frameworks are now becoming more and more compatible for mobile apps and platforms through the so called hybrid mobile frameworks.
