Well, it’s been a good run, but AngularJS end of life begins December 31, 2021. This also marks the end of a three-and-a-half-year-long term support phase. Hence, the AngularJS development community is no longer accepting change requests or making attempts to update the application beyond bugs/issues within a strict set of parameters – and that’s only until the end of 2021.

Released in December 2011, Ember.js is a fully open-source JS web framework espoused by Fortune 500 companies like LinkedIn, Vine, Twitch, Chipotle, and Apple Music. Ember.js employs the Model-view-view-model (MVVM) pattern, which is well known by most front-end developers. Other selling points are that jQuery can be easily integrated into projects and templates that update automatically via Handlebars.js. Before jumping on the Ember.js bandwagon, bear in mind that it’s aimed at “ambitious web developers”, making Ember.js too large for simple projects (which is probably why it’s used by such large companies).

You might think that “Backbone” is an odd name for a front-end framework, but this lightweight JS library gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, a rich API of functions, and views with declarative event handling. Backbone.js connects all of these to your existing API using a RESTful JSON interface.
Developers like that its delivery model is based on the well-known MVC (Model-View-Controller) designer pattern. Another thing that this library has going for it is that it’s easy to use and simple to learn.
It’s also very lightweight. Coming in at around 5 KB (minified and compressed), Lit helps keep your bundle size small and your loading time short. And rendering is blazing fast because Lit touches only the dynamic parts of your UI when updating, so there’s no need to rebuild a virtual tree and diff it with the DOM.
7. Sencha Ext JS
Of all the choices provided here, Sencha Ext JS is the only one that is not free. Although a free trial is offered for 30 days, after that, a license for up to 5 developers costs $6,280 for the Pro version and $9,190 for Enterprise.
Although the frontend space is getting crowded, the worldwide community of companies, academics, and hobbyists who contribute to the open-source framework feel that the solution is still “out there” and firmly believe that Riot.js offers the right balance for solving the “great puzzle”. Riot prides itself on the qualities of connectivity, security, privacy, and durability. Riot.js brings custom elements to all modern browsers without the use of any polyfills. Its reusable components employ custom tags that are perfectly human-readable and are fully reusable, allowing you to build complex views. According to developers, Riot.js is easy to learn and work with – two key ingredients to any successful framework.
