Angular.JS vs React.js vs Node.js Vs Vue.js: which is the best technology for custom web app development? Which one should we choose for our business? These are the most common questions that are often asked by ISVs and SMEs while starting their projects.
For full-stack web app development, your business will need the right front-end and back-end tools to see the process through. The frameworks and technologies below will be amply useful for building your web app.
On the front end, the tools you should use for web app development and web development have remained roughly the same for a quarter of a century. But at the very least, you can bet they’re reliable!
HTML is another core technology of web development. HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is responsible for structuring the content of a web page.
A series of HTML elements describe to a web page how to display text, images, and in the latest version of HTML — HTML 5 — audio and video. HTML elements are most recognizable by the “<” and “>” characters.
Here’s a secret: if you’re on a desktop or laptop, right-click on any web page, press “View page source” and you will find a bunch of HTML embedded right into your browser.
Colors, layouts, and fonts are some of the integral characteristics of a web page or web app. CSS invokes these characteristics.
Back-end development features a broader range of technologies as back-end development comprises several components such as server-side programming, databases, web servers, and APIs.
PHP are some of the most popular back-end languages. Many tech companies use more than just one of these languages but still, many side-by-side comparisons exist to examine their utility.
Databases store the data of an application. Back-end developers should be familiar with query languages that are able to request and retrieve data using queries.
APIs facilitate connections between two or more software systems. An API integration is what fuels your Google Home’s communication with your Spotify playlist, for instance, or eBay’s collaboration with PayPal.
Again, APIs do not have a domain-specific language. Instead, developers create APIs using other back-end technologies and share them publicly with other developers or keep them close to the organization they work for.
