TOP 7 JavaScript Libraries That Worth Your Attention


TOP 7 JavaScript Libraries That Worth Your Attention

From year to a year Javascript programming platform is rapidly growing in its popularity. Being one of the oldest and one of the most reliable programming toolkits, Java is acting as a foundation for lots of popular applications and web resources all over the world. However, lots of newcomers, who are facing that software at the first time frequently have several troubles with the usage of it, even despite of the fact, that with each update Java becomes more and simple to use and understand. Because of such an issue various companies and freelance developers are focused on the creation of different libraries, which will be able to make it possible to use Java in a much easier manner. Due to that, each year we see more and more freely available frameworks in the net and sometimes it becomes not really easy to follow the trends and keep in touch with all the news. So, in that article I would like to give you a small list of the most famous and widely used JavaScript Libraries For 2017.

What means to be the best javascript libraries?

To be honest it is not really easy to say, what does it mean to have a set of good JavaScript frameworks. For example, lots of beginning programmers and developers are frequently curious on the fact, how to get the top javascript libraries and operate with them. In such a situation we can say, that your own choice of the frameworks or a library depends on your purposes and opportunities and on the main aim of the software or an app you are trying to build. Furthermore, you have to fully understand your key priorities and try to identify, which main features of your programme you have to optimise. Thus, downstream I would like to present you several best js libraries, which could be used in different direct fields and be oriented on certain specialization.


1. Vidage.js

While giving a word on the most widespreaded libraries, which are usually used by the JS developers it would be a big mistake to forget one of the most popular of them called “Vidage”. If we take into consideration, that all the android applications are built on the JS code, it seems absolutely not strange, that VIdage became so popular and widely used among various developers. Moreover, among those, who are predominantly focused on the creation of Android games and different other extensions for the portable devices.

The main secret of that extreme popularity is covered directly under the functionality of a library and the main aim for which it was developed. That framework gives you an opportunity to automatically regulate the size of a background picture, which is used for the decoration of an interface within an app. According to the size of a screen, its position and extension, that library calibrates all the parameters of that essential part of any extension or application, basing on complay and resize measures.


2. iTour. js

iTour is one of the most flexible and simple libraries, which has been occupying the leading positions in the rates of the most popular libraries in 2016 and 2017. From the very first glance we may say, that usually such functions are not the most popular in the field of web development, however, it usually happens just because of the lack of experience among those, who claim so. Thus, I am willing to give a brief explanation on the key functions and opportunities of that library, which was developed not so long time ago.

Actually, the core features of the library are already situated in its name and says to us, that it is nothing more but an automatic guide for the users through your website or an application. It is absolutely suitable and matchable with any type of the interface and it does not matter how bright, unusual or multimedia it is. For instance, I believe, that any person through his or her experience of the usage of different applications and web resources has faced a problem of the orientation within it and was not able to find, what he or she needs in one try. However, in case if iTour is implemented in a JS code on which an app or web page is based, you are now able to see the key tasks, features and elements of the resource you are using, what makes the usage of it much easier in several times.


3. Meteor 

While talking about popular javascript libraries it will be a mistake to forget such a useful framework as Meteor. That library with a highly wide spectrum of different functions and with a pretty big built in toolkit can open you lots of different opportunities, which previously were not available for you. To make a long story short, meteor allows you to integrate any possible platform with pretty good results, regardless the fact, what are you willing to build. So, thanks to the usage of meteor you get an opportunity to build a highly multifunctional and simple cross-border platform, which may be used for different purposes.

However, there is a small nuance, which you have to keep in mind. Meteor was developed in order to be suitable and useful for the creation of different messengers and other similar applications, which could be used for fast and real-time chatting. For sure, with any update that framework becomes more and more advanced, while firstly it got its popularity during the heyday of Telegram, Viber and Whatsapp.

Moreover, it will not be superfluous to say, that Meteor library is pretty complicated, what makes it not the best choice for the beginning developers and primary programmers. You have to remember, that in order to use Meteor successfully it is important to have a quite good experience in the field of JS development and programming.


4. D3.js

Rapid development of the information technologies is without a doubt leading to the evolvement of such a field of cyber industry as data coordination and managing. Because of it one of the best javascript charting libraries are now getting in popularity with more and more increasing pase. Dir to that, in 2017 such frameworks as D3.js took the top positions in almost all the rates in the Internet. Actually, I can not say, that D3. js is something highly complicated or multi-sided, absolutely not. However, its simplicity is the best positive feature of that library, what makes it so popular and widely used in the whole world among professional Java developers.

That library gives you an opportunity to build a huge variety of different graphs, pie, horizontal and vertical charts in the easiest manner you can even imagine. Moreover, that makes this library one of the best tools for the information optimization and visualization. I also have to notice, that thanks to the fact, that it is integrated with SVG, you are able to canvas elements and objects to render any possible graphs and charts you need. Furthermore, because of the numerous built-in tools and plugins you are able to design and change all the objects in any manner you are willing to.

Google Charts

5. Google Charts

Another highly famous and useful library, which was developed for the same purpose as the previous one is Google Charts. It is almost the same as D3, but used even more widely. It has a built in gallery of special tools, which may allow you to manufacture and develop various pies and charts, which could be later accomplished with a software, that you are building. Furthermore, it offers a great documentation, explanation for each existing function and highly useful step by step instructions. Moreover, it is a full cross-border platform, which allows you to operate with it any possible environment. In case of choosing Google Charts as the main foundation for your programming you can be sure in the quality of the final results.

6. GSAP 

Now, let me give a word on the most popular and widespreaded graphic frameworks, which are as well included into javascript libraries list. It is actually the largest and most developed animation tool, which is frequently used by the most experienced and highly educated developers. The websites of such giant companies as Ford, Microsoft and Adobe are built with the usage of that framework. While talking about that particular frameworks we do not have to forget, that it has a giant set of animation features, which give you an opportunity to edit and change all the objects in a way you want. Thanks to the big and useful stacks of functions and pretty various toolkit the implementation of any possible design to your code becomes much more simple and easier. Change of any DOM elements for now is not a problem at all. Moreover, GSAP is matchable with all the existing platforms and makes it possible to integrate the made software for any device or software. Last, but not least, GSAP offers lots of functions and features for 3D editing and modular architecture.

Moment. js

7. Moment.js

That library is one of the most simple and easy to understand from the whole list of those, which were mentioned here. However, despite of that fact it does not mean, that it is less useful than others. You can ask any Java developer on how to manually set date and time for the website or an application built on JS. And he will respond you, that it is not the easiest task. However, with the usage of Moment.js, all these operations become automatic and could be set without a direct interference of a programmer.

First of all, we have to mention, that this framework has lots of built in plugins. For instance, it can automatically identify the time zone, geolocation, set its setting according to the language of the user and identify all the elements and features of date and time setting on its own. Secondly, it could be easily and freely integrated to any existing social networks, which are highly vital in our developing world, such as: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and many many others. So, we may conclude, that such a simple, but in the same time useful library may play a huge role in the development of your application or resource, while cutting an amount of time, spent on all the operation related to that subject.

Final word on the best JS libraries

Taking everything into consideration, I would like to say, that it is impossible to identify the top javascript library, due to the fact, that the choice of them is usually based on your own needs and opportunities. However, that list, which was presented in the article could become a line of those must-haves, which ought to be used by ant Java programmer on his way towards the development of his own top-notch product. Furthermore, unlike lots of primary developers, you do not have to be afraid of the usage of all these materials within your code. However, in that field it remains highly important to be able to make a right choice. But, anyway, while choosing anything from the list above, you can fully rely on that tool and be sure, that in case of a proper use, it is not a problem at all to get the proper outcomes.
