What Are Web Frameworks?
Web frameworks are kind of like building scaffolding, but for websites.
The Benefits Of Web Frameworks
You’re Not Reinventing The Wheel
Web frameworks provide many typical website components right out of the box, such as user management functionality – which might otherwise take months of custom development to build.
They’re Fast, Secure And Scalable
Web frameworks are designed to be reused; for example is currently used by over 60 million websites worldwide! This leads to quality control on a global scale, and therefore an extremely robust foundation from which to develop your website from.
Well Documented And Supported
Communities of users and developers spring up around web frameworks where ideas can be shared and knowledge can be captured.
Add-ons, themes, plugins, widgets are all names for things which develop within web framework communities and enable further rapid customisation of your website.
Reduced Development Time And Cost
The rapid build of basic website components and ease of customisation leads to large-scale time and cost savings.
Picking A Web Framework
There are web frameworks created for practically every programming language, each with its own pros and cons. Due diligence should be taken when selecting a framework for your website, taking expert advice if necessary.
We live in exciting times to be building websites; we liken using web frameworks and web services in web development to the industrial revolution in manufacturing.
Where once common website components had to be individually manufactured they can now be simply taken ‘off the shelf’ and integrated. This frees up developers to concentrate their bespoke programming efforts on the INNOVATIVE aspects of a client’s website; often around the business’s core products and services. Which after all, is where the main value is offered to customers!
