Rise of Vue.Js

Vue.Js made its debut in 2014 and as of yet has developed a good reputation for being one of the most lightweight frameworks. It is also very fast compared to other frameworks. The interesting point to note is that Vue.Js is not backed by any major company unlike React which is backed by facebook and Angular which is backed by google. With its elaborate piece of documentation made available in several languages, especially chinese, Vue made its mark with the creation of the hugely successful platform Alibaba. Besides that Expedia, Nintendo and Gitlab are also amongst a few successful brands that owe to its success.

Material Design is the latest upgrade of a modern, responsive Materialize CSS framework that comes in two forms: Materialize and Saas. It is mostly derived from google’s material design language and lets you exhibit components like Parallax and Toast. On top of that it also exercises a great deal of compatibility with other browsers and contributes towards delivering varied user experience design.

Popularity of Real Time Web Apps

The demand of faster delivery and interaction have created a demanding need for more Real-Time web apps and they are constantly scaling new standards in terms of connectivity and data hosting. The main highlight of constructing a real-time web application is that the connection between the client and the server is left open to receive or push any data as per any kind of activity that takes place on the website. Prior to this, any such activity was done manually on the part of the client to make the desired changes happen. Node.js is the best when it comes to delivering such a service and it spread to several other languages and frameworks as well.  Ruby on Rails users might know it as “ActionCable”, the feature that lets you build things in real time using javascript single page applications. Until then Ruby on Rails relied heavily on server side rendering as a part of its operations.
