Where do you need to use javascript MV* framework

August 29, 2013 Leave a comment

I like following while I was reading an article on javascript frameworks: I thought it is worth repeating:

So, where will you likely need an MV* framework and where won’t you?

If you’re writing an application that will likely only be communicating with an API or back-end data service, where much of the heavy lifting for viewing or manipulating that data will be occurring in the browser, you may find a JavaScript MV* framework useful.

Good examples of applications that fall into this category are GMail and Google Docs. These applications typically download a single payload containing all the scripts, stylesheets and markup users need for common tasks and then perform a lot of additional behavior in the background. It’s trivial to switch between reading an email or document to writing one and you don’t need to ask the application to render the whole page again at all.

If, however, you’re building an application that still relies on the server for most of the heavy-lifting of Views/pages and you’re just using a little JavaScript or jQuery to make things a little more interactive, an MV framework may be overkill. There certainly are complex Web applications where the partial rendering of views can* be coupled with a single-page application effectively, but for everything else, you may find yourself better sticking to a simpler setup.

10 Useful Frameworks To Develop HTML-Based Webapps for Touch Devices

August 26, 2010 Leave a comment

I came across this article about different frameworks for building Mobile Apps/ Web sites by Antonio Lupetti

Intro of the Article is:

Make HTML-based touch applications. Easy.

In the last two years the rapid growth and diffusion of touch devices such as iOS or Android based platforms has forced developers and web designers to rethink the model of their own webapps for the new “touch experience” introduced by the iPhone in 2007.

During this period several frameworks have been released to help web developers implement quickly applications for this kind of touch devices. Here is a collection of some useful frameworks to develop easily HTML-based webapps that will work on all popular smartphone and tablet touch platforms.

Web multimedia: 6 reasons why Flash isn’t going away

August 19, 2010 Leave a comment

I was reading an article on Computer world and I was very impressed with the content and wanted to share this in here: Its a 4 page article

Article 6 reasons Flash / HTML5 on Computer World

Here are few points I liked most in the post:

Page 1:

“Quite frankly, Flash is a great animation tool, and it’s used for a lot of interactivity. Those kind of interactive elements are difficult to do in HTML 5,” Barberich says.

Page 2:

Although YouTube (which is owned by Google) is experimenting with HTML 5, content protection is one of the reasons why the site still needs Flash, said John Harding, a software engineer for YouTube

Page 3:

Perhaps the most widely reported of these efforts is the open-source Smokescreen project. Developed by RevShock, a mobile ad start-up, Smokescreen shows promise in its initial form, but its performance doesn’t match what users get with Flash content that runs natively. “Smokescreen exemplifies the immaturity of HTML 5,” says Rubin.

Page 4:

Largely lost in all the HTML 5 vs. Flash rhetoric is the possibility that the two technologies might simply work side by side. “I’m never really sure why HTML 5 and Flash can’t co-exist,” says Cote, “why it’s a zero-sum game.”

Rubin of NPD predicts that “within the next few years, we will likely see sites support both technologies. They will be able to achieve much of what they’ve traditionally done with Flash with HTML 5, but there’s no doubt that Flash will also continue to evolve and offer incentives to maintain its developer support.”

It is worth reading the article if you are in web development.
