Front end frameworks also referred to as “CSS frameworks,” these are packages containing pre-written, standardized code in files and folders. They give you a base to build on while still allowing flexibility with the final design. Typically, front-end frameworks contain the following components:
- A grid which makes it simple to organize the design elements of your website
- Defined font styles and sizing that varies based on its function (different typography for headings versus paragraphs, etc.)
- Pre-built website components like side panels, buttons, and navigation bars
Depending on the specific framework you choose, there’s a lot more they are capable of as well.
- 4k websites on the internet are powered by Polymer.
- Github – 20k stars, 1.9k forks and 140 contributors.
- Polymer.js enables developers to build their own custom HTML elements.
- Supports both One-way and two-way data binding.
- Cross browser compatibility: polymer was designed especially with keeping cross browser compatibility testing in mind.
Problems With Polymer:
- Unlike its peers, it lacks server-side rendering.
- Not abundant resources: As compared to react Vue and angular, polymer has scarce resources available on the net and has a very small community which has shunted its growth in popularity .
Frameworks are incredibly helpful tools for front-end design, especially if you have a job where you’re frequently developing that side. They allow you to speed up your workflow and increase your productivity without sacrificing quality or functionality, while still leaving the door open for a unique, customized look. Just remember to use them as a tool to complement your skills, not as a way to cut corners—and enjoy!
