A decade ago things were much simpler as the desktop browser was the primary front end for accessing websites. The main challenge was dealing with the dozen of desktop screen sizes and adding extra development to support previous versions of Internet Explorer. But now, with the boom of hand held electronic devices in the last seven to eight years, everything has changed. Users have freedom to access the web via smartphones, tablets, eReaders, browsers on TVs and many others. The diversity is increasing every day.

Due to ever-evolving web technologies, front end is going through rapid innovation with a range of mobile devices available in the market today. With multiple devices and web technologies, as a decision maker it becomes considerably difficult to identify the best web technology fit for an app or web solution.

Overview of Front End Development Technology and Tools

Responsive web design came into picture to solve the challenge where custom layouts can be provided to devices based on the size of the browser window. By default, most browsers on small devices such as smartphones and tablets shrink a web page down to fit the screen and provide ways for zooming and moving around the page. Although it technically works, it is not a great experience for users.

Responsive design is a good fit for a single HTML document like an event landing page, but the design becomes complex for multiple pages. It is a sufficient solution to fight the growing device diversity, but what are the tools and technologies that can be implemented in the designs? Are there any that can help us? This is where front end web development tools and framework come into play.

What is front end web development?

A front end web development framework contains a collection of production ready HTML/CSS/JavaScript components that can be used to design web & mobile solutions. They help to create simple, responsive, standard-compliant websites with minimum effort. One of the major advantages is that it is easy to use, even for someone with limited technical knowledge.
