When we visit shops and stalls, what is the first thing that we see? We see the goods that are placed on the shelves that bear a price tag. We get to see how attractive and complete the goods are. Seeing this we are tempted to buy the goods. The same logic is applied for the front end. So basically what is the front end. Front end is nothing but the technology that is used to design the Graphical user interface that sits between the user and the back end.

So let us describe a bit in detail what role the front end plays.

When we shop online, we see the various elements of the website, such as the shopping cart, the product images, its description, the price, the various buttons and hyperlinks, etc. Whatever we see on the page that we shop comprises the front end aspects of the website. The visual part of the website is defined by the front end technology and concepts that govern the website.

So this front end connects the back end of the website. A websites back end is the core business logic of how the website operates as well as any databases that go into building the website. This is the backend. Both the front end as well as the backend function in tandem with each other.

In this article, we will discuss the various front-end technologies that are available for developers and programmers and what role they play in the development of apps and websites.

There is a lot to learn about front end development. As it forms the core visual logic that connects the websites and the applications to the backend aspects.

The front end forms the visual aspects of anything, this is what governs the daily life objects that we see around us. It functions as an interface between the user or the visitor and the core application or objects. This same logic is applied to everyday things and also to the programming and development of applications and websites. It can be anything from native apps to websites to ecommerce stores or blog informative websites, etc.

So what are the various front-end technologies that are available in the market of the IT development industry, you may ask. Well we are here to cover all of these technologies.

So let's start.

The main technologies that are available to programmers and developers are AngularJS, ReactJS, VueJS and NodeJS. These form the basic technical applications that comprise the front end development spectrum.

Let's discuss in detail what these technologies are.

Angular JS:

AngularJS is a product of Google, the search engine behemoth. This technology is used to develop single-page applications that help with the processing of websites and webpages. It can easily handle different types of processing for example, ecommerce page actions and the GUI that works for it. AngularJS is apt for processing and handling the GUI aspects that go into building these applications and websites. It works alongside other different technologies such as JavaScript, HTML and CSS to become the full front end experience for the user that visits the application.


ReactJS is a product of the social media giant Facebook. A team of engineers had invented this front end technology to drive the main GUI aspect of the social media platform. It was made open source and any programmer and developer can use it to function in their applications and websites. It is also known as the full fledged javascript front end framework that drives the operations of different applications.


VueJS is the front end framework that was developed by Evan You. This framework was invented 6 years ago to develop single page applications and graphical user interfaces. It is a javascript framework that is mainly used to develop the user interfaces of the web.


NodeJS is a server side technology that is used to develop intuitive and large scale as well as high-performance web applications and web interfaces. It works on open source technologies and is easily scalable and meets high traffic demands and standards.


We have discussed the various web-based front end technologies that are available to us for developing front end applications and implementations.
