Well-known libraries such as Google Closure, YUI compressor or UglifyJS minify, compress and optimize JavaScript. The techniques they use can be collectively referred to as JavaScript optimization. They are great at improving overall page load speed, but fall short if you are interested in protecting your source code from code theft and reuse, tampering, or reverse engineering. Despite that, optimized code is often confused with obfuscated code. For example, compressed code is completely encoded, which at first glance may seem to be highly obfuscated, but a simple run is often enough to retrieve something very similar to the original code. JScrambler goes beyond these libraries by offering advanced obfuscation (JScrambler obfuscated version) that can protect your code. JScrambler just released a new version (3.5) that takes protection even more seriously.

The ability to extend these frameworks with new plugins makes them even more powerful. But you may still face situations when you don’t want to use these frameworks or you may find lack of support for specialized functions. This is where a lot of really useful stand alone JavaScript libraries can provide help. W3Avenue has compiled a list of really useful standalone JavaScript libraries that will help you when your favorite JavaScript framework like Prototype, jQuery, MooTools, etc don’t provide functions for your specific needs or you prefer not to use them for some reason.

These libraries provide many functions, whether the matter is related to events or effects or AJAX. And if one of these libraries can’t do the job, a plug-in probably exists that can. Such flexibility is great but sometimes comes with a penalty (the size of JavaScript files being one of them). The Big Glossary of Open Source JavaScript and Web Frameworks with Cool Names.

The Top 10 Javascript MVC Frameworks Reviewed

Over the last several months I have been in a constant search for the perfect javascript MVC framework. Driven by a dire need for the right level of abstraction and features, I have tried out - some more cursorily than others - every framework I could get my hands on. Here lies a brief synopsis of each framework. Lastly, I share the framework which I ultimately decided on. Specifically, the following four features are very important to me: UI Bindings - I'm not just talking about templates, I'm talking about a declarative approach to automatically updating the view layer when the underlying model changes.

The Contenders Here is a table showing all of the frameworks support for the above features. 1. Backbone.js is the web's darling framework.

20 JavaScript Frameworks Worth Checking Out

And importantly, so has the sheer complexity of them -- specially on the front end. No more static pages, no sir! You have a ton of sections each interacting with each other and the server and yes, it's as complicated as it sounds and just as hard to pull off. Today, I'd like to talk about a few choice JavaScript frameworks that aim to simplify front-end application development.

If you think jQuery is the answer, you lose a cookie and get an F grade! Creating responsive, fluid, and maintainable interfaces for web apps isn't as easy as one would imagine -- there is data to be sent back to the server and the results parsed, data stores to be updated, views to be re-rendered and so much else that needs to be done in the background.

Sure, a few of these may be a little old but their code bases have lots of lessons to teach. Related links: Comparison of JavaScript frameworks. Compare JavaScript frameworks.

JavaScript lets Web developers programmatically work with objects on a Web page, providing a platform for manipulating these objects on-the-fly. When JavaScript was first introduced, it was commonly used to provide trivial features on Web pages such as clocks and scrolling text in the browser status bar. Another common feature was the "rollover link," where an image or text color of a link would be changed when the user rolled their mouse over it. In recent times, however, JavaScript has evolved to become far more useful, with the concept of Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) bringing a whole new level of interactivity to Web-based programming.
