Here are some of the best open source web frameworks available to you and just how well they can help you out with your website tasks and how well these will work with your schedule and programming personality. All of these open source web frameworks deliver the goods when it comes to developing your own website, it’s just really a matter of which one works for you best at this particular juncture of your development phase.
Ruby On Rails
Programming can be painful on the head, with all the computer programming lingo and syntax, but Ruby on Rails solves that.
By placing a premium on convention rather than configuration, Ruby on Rails is giving programmers an easier time creating their web pages by making the code easier to read. As a result, a lot of programmers have started using Rails and they don’t seem to want to go back to the old way that they did it. Some example projects (that started out or are currently) using Ruby on Rails are Twitter, Basecamp and Smartlend.
In a hurry to get your website up? Are you the kind of programmer that doesn’t need all the frills that other web frameworks are offering?
What you need then is Django. Django is a high-level Python Web framework that focuses on getting the job done, without having to look all glam about it. Built by an online-news operation, it’s fast, light and deadline friendly, but as versatile as the experienced web developers who crafted Django. So if you want it straight and fast, go with Django.
Grails Likes Java
If you love coding with websites using Java, then you are going to enjoy using Grails. Fast, Dynamic and Robust, this open source web framework can provide web designers like you with a productive and stream-lined programming environment.
Meteor is a Hit
Laravel is Pretty PHP
Coding can PHP can be a real drag. Real painful. And really ugly looking. It’s a good thing Laravel popped up in the web coding party because Laravel is pretty much the PHP framework for the web programmer/artist. If you’re tired of looking at all that un-pretty PHP code, then you can switch over to Laravel
AngularJS for HTML lovers
If you like HTML then you most likely know that using HTML is great when you have static document, but really isn’t very much that useful when it comes to dynamic content in web applications. The solutions? Well, you can veer away from HTML and try something else or you can go with AngularJS which provides you with an efficient way of extending your HTML vocabulary. Get dynamic views and a more expressive site with AngularJS.
