This article represents top 5 Javascript frameworks for web apps as of this month, Octobar 2014. Please note that that I call them out as top 5 based on Google trends and that is it. To my amaze, I found meteorjs as a real cool one which I would try and post my opinion in future blogs. Please feel free to comment/suggest if I missed to mention one or more popular frameworks. Also, sorry for the typos.

 

Following are the top 5 frameworks:

  • AngularJS
  • ReactJS
  • EmberJS
  • MeteorJS
  • KnockoutJS or BackboneJS

 

AngularJS

One of my personal favorites, AngularJS is trending upward. Take a look at the plot below:

ReactJS

A component-oriented framework for developing web apps, ReactJS is also a cool one and popular at this point. It has a slightly higher steep learning curve. But once you are familiar, it should be a smooth sale. Take a look at the trends below:

EmberJS

Tried just the hello world program and can not comment much. However, EmberJS is also trending upward and worth a try.

MeteorJS

I checked out the MeteroJS website and saw the demo video. Looks like a cool framework that could do so much. Worth a try as well. However, this is still in the early phases of development, but looks very promising, I would say.

KnockoutJS or BackboneJS

These frameworks (KnockoutJS & BackboneJS) have been their for a while. However, rise of frameworks such as AngularJS has somewhat decreased the popularity of these frameworks.
