Why choosing the technology stack is considered to be important not for the developers only, but for the customers as well? That’s not a secret that the main aim for the customers is the fact that their end-product behaves precisely as it was planned in the beginning. And the technology stack influences directly how the application works. Following the latest technology trends in your application will help you to be ahead of your competitors.
In this article, we’d like to describe which technology stack you need to choose for your web and mobile applications in 2019 to stay current.
The most popular Front-End technology stack: React.js and Angular.js
Speaking about the most popular technology stack for front-end, we’d like to underline React.js and Angular.js.
Well-known companies which use React.js
World-leaders who is attracted by Angular.js
Angular is used in more than 600 application in Google, such as Firebase, Console, Google Analytics, Google Express, Google Cloud Platform, etc. It is also popular among the following large companies worldwide as Upwork, Delta, NBA, wix.com, CVS shop, Eat24. In 2019 it’s predicted that Angular will continue to be in high demand.
Back-End technology: Node.js
As for technology stack for Back-End, Node.js needs to be mentioned.
Top companies which use Node.js
Node.js suits perfectly for the development of complex, powerful and data-heavy real-time applications, which include chat functionality, live streaming, and other tools for communication. The flexibility, simplicity, efficiency and high scalability of Node.js made it widespread among such world leaders as Netflix, PayPal, Walmart, LinkedIn, Medium and NASA. In comparison with the previous years, it’s expected even high growth of the popularity of Node.js.
The most promising cross-platform technologies: React Native & Flutter
Speaking about mobile development, that’s not a secret that iOS and Android have become the most popular mobile platforms. However, the question of finding the cure-all technology stack which will cover both platforms and, as a result, will save the time and cost for the development without decreasing the efficiency and overall appearance of the app, is still relevant. Therefore, cross-platform development will continue gaining its popularity. The most vivid representatives of cross-platform solutions are React Native and young, but up-and-coming Flutter engine.
The companies which use React Native in their apps
React Native is a framework for mobile applications officially released by Facebook in February 2015 and became freely accessible in March 2015. By its compliance with for both iOS and Android platforms, React Native has become extremely popular and, according to Facebook, now is being used by 800 million people each month.
The companies which implement Flutter in their apps
Flutter is an open-source mobile development framework launched by Google in 2017 and has started gaining its popularity mostly in 2018. So, it’s quite a young framework, in comparison with others, but up-and-coming at the same time. The apps developed on Flutter are also compiled with both iOS and Android platforms, but via using Dart language.
In comparison with other hybrid mobile development solutions, Flutter doesn’t require the “bridge” to connect the coding part with the platforms, which speed up the development process a lot. Flutter has already been used for the development of the app for Alibaba, Google Ads and AppTree. Therefore, it’s highly recommended to keep an eye on it in 2019.
However, don’t forget that choosing the right technology for your future app depends on its requirements and functionalities which need to be implemented!
Good luck with your project!
