Top 10 web technologies to design the web application in 2020

Top 10 web Technologies

The Top 10 Web technologies used to design web application in 2020 is the main topic of the current post . We started by discussing each technology briefly.

The web application or web design is becoming more common nowadays and non IT people are also interested to design the web pages without having proper knowledge of web technologies. Some statistics tells that around more than 500 million websites are available  with 10 million web developer around the world.This number may be doubled in next few years. 

In this post I mainly discuss on the technologies used to develop web application which are dynamic and responsive in nature. Even though we have readymade tools like wordpress ,weebly and wix to design the websites ,but we cannot perform all functions by using them ,little bit of coding knowledge should be required to completely develop web applications. 

The top 10 web technologies can be used to design the web applications are as follows

  • Django
  • React JS
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Node js
  • AngularJS
  • Vue JS
  • JavaScript and PHP
  • YII
  • Laravel 

We discuss each one of the above technology in detail,

1.Django WebFramework

Django is a python based web framework used to build web application efficiently using MVT architecture. I posted a article on creating a web application using DJango ,please click here to read . Django uses python as the programming language to create the web apps ,since python is one of the most popular scripting language in the developer community , hence it is easy to design the web application using python ,in addition to these python is well supported by strong community users and it is a open source ,these qualities made pyhton is one of the  leading web technology in 2020.

2. React JS

 React JS is another popular and high demand web technology in the industry , a react js developer make good amount of money compared to other .  

React is a Javascript library used to design the user  interfaces efficiently . In short we can define React as Declarative , component based and Learn once ,write anywhere scripting language. 

Respond makes it easy to make intuitive UIs. Plan straightforward perspectives for each state in your application, and React will productively refresh and render the perfect parts when your information changes. 

Decisive perspectives make your code increasingly unsurprising and simpler to investigate. 

 Build encapsulated components  that deal with their own state, at that point make them to make complex UIs.

Since component logic is written in JavaScript rather than templates , you can without much of a stretch pass rich information through your application and keep state out of the DOM. 


3.Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails is one  of the most powerful web framework used to build the web applications ,we can design the websites using rail application .some example website built using ruby on rials are as follows 

Github ,shopify , etc.

It has following features.

Easy to learn, open source, rich libraries ,very easy to extend and truly object oriented and good community base.

  • It has few drawback ,which are as follows 
  • Performance issue and threading model.
  • Performance issue : It is a interpreted language cannot be compared to C/C++
  • Threading Model:  Ruby does not use Native threads.
  • The more information is available on ruby on rails  at :

ASP.Net is a web design  platform provided by Microsoft. It is used for creating web-based applications. ASP.Net was first released in the year 2002. 

The first version of ASP.Net deployed was 1.0. The most recent version of ASP.Net is version 4.6. It is licensed under Apache Licence 2.0

ASP.Net applications can also be written in a variety of .Net languages. These include C#, VB.Net, and J#. In this chapter, you will see some basic fundamental of the .Net framework. 

The full form of ASP is Active Server Pages, and .NET is Network Enabled Technologies. 

The ASP.NET SOAP extension framework allows ASP.NET components to process SOAP messages.

Compare to other scripting languages ,ASP .net has separate set of developers used repeatedly to design the webpages . It is fast and scalabe compared to others.

5. Node .JS

Probably Node .JS is the first scripting language  for using the object oriented feature in the web deign platform. Node.JS is a cross platform and open source javascript runtime environment.  Which runs the google chrome javascript engine. 

A Node.js  powerd app  run in a single process, without creating a new thread for every request. Node.js gives  a set of asynchronous I/O primitives in its standard library that prevent JavaScript code from blocking and generally, libraries in Node.js are written using non-blocking paradigms, making blocking behavior the exception rather than the norm.

When Node.js needs to perform an I/O operation, like reading from the network, accessing a database or the filesystem, instead of blocking the thread and wasting CPU cycles waiting, Node.js will resume the operations when the response comes back.

This allows Node.js to handle thousands of concurrent connections with a single server without introducing the burden of managing thread concurrency, which could be a significant source of bugs.

Node.js has a unique advantage because thousands  of frontend designers  that write JavaScript for the browser are now able to write the server-side code in addition to the client-side code without the need to learn a completely different language.

6.Angular JS

Another Java web framework ,extensively used in front end design ,AngularJS is maintained by Google . It is not not like other frameworks ,which support a rich set of libraries rather it embraces extending HTML into the most expressive and readable format.

AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. It lets you use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and efficiently . AngularJS’s data binding and dependency injection eliminate much of the coding part.. And it all takes place  inside  the browser, making it an ideal companion  with any server technology.

AngularJS is not a single piece in the overall puzzle of designing  the client-side of a web application. It handles all of the DOM(Document Object Modeling)  and AJAX glue code  once wrote by developer  and puts it in a well-defined structure. This makes AngularJS stubborn about how a CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) application ought to be fabricated. Yet, while it is stubborn, it likewise attempts to ensure that its assessment is only a beginning stage you can undoubtedly change.

7. Vue JS

Vue is another javascript web framework designed by Evan You ,an ex google employee used to design interactive web applications  . It is mainly used to simplify the complexity of the web application .VueJS focuses mainly  on the view layer. It can be easily integrated into complex  projects for front-end development without any overhead. The main features of Vue JS is as follows :

  • Data Binding: The data binding feature helps change or assign values to HTML attributes, change the style, assign classes with the help of binding directive called v-bind available with VueJS.
  • Components : Components are one of the  best  features of VueJS that helps create custom items , which can be reused in HTML.
  • Event Handling : In Vue JS , v-on is the attribute added to the DOM elements to listen to the events.
  • Animation/Transition : VueJS gives different approaches to apply changes to HTML components when they are included/refreshed or expelled from the DOM. VueJS has a built-in transition component that needs to be wrapped around the element for transition effect.
  • Computed Properties : This is another striking  features of VueJS. It helps to listen to the modification  made to the UI elements and performs the necessary computations. There is no need of additional coding for this.
  • Templates : VueJS provides HTML-based templates that bind the DOM with the Vue instance data. Vue compiles the templates into virtual DOM Render functions. 
  • Directives : VueJS has built-in standard  directives such as v-if, v-else, v-show, v-on, v-bind, and v-model, which are used to perform different  actions on the frontend.
  • Watchers : Watchers are applied to data that changes.
  • Routing : Navigation between pages is performed with the help of vue-router.
  • Lightweight : VueJS script is a  lightweight framework  and the performance is  very fast.
  • Vue-CLI :From the command line ,VueJS can be installed  using the vue-cli command line interface. It helps to build and compile the project easily using vue-cli.

 8. JavaScript and PHP 

Even Though I Placed Java Script and PHP  at position 8 ,but it is the foundation for above all framework discussed above. Very less people use java script for the design of the web application (without any above mentioned framework) .   Javascript is mainly used to design client side web application ,whereas PHP is used for server side scripting . The combination of these two will be used to design the complete web application. 

9. YII

YII framework is an open-source PHP framework for rapidly-developing  Web applications. It is designed  around the Model-View-Controller composite pattern. Yii provides secured and professional  features to create robust projects rapidly.

The Yii framework has a component-based architecture and a full solid caching support. Therefore, it is suitable for building all kinds of Web applications like forums, portals, content management systems, e-commerce websites, and so forth.

Yii is a pure OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) framework. Hence, it requires a basic knowledge of OOP. Since  The Yii framework uses  the latest features of PHP, like traits and namespaces. The major requirements for Yii2 are PHP 5.4+ and a web server.

Laravel is another open-source PHP framework, which is robust and easy to learn. It follows a model-view-controller design pattern. Laravel reuses the already  existing components of different frameworks which helps in creating a web application. The web application thus developed  will be  more structured and efficient .

Laravel offers a rich set of functionalities which incorporates the basic features of PHP frameworks like CodeIgniter, Yii and other programming languages like Ruby on Rails. Laravel has a very rich set of features which will boost the speed of web development.

If you are good  with Core PHP and Advanced PHP, Laravel will do the  task easier. It saves a lot time if you are planning to develop a website from beginning . 

Artisan: Command line interface used in Laravel is called Artisan. It includes a set of commands which assists in building a web application.


  Composer is a tool which includes all the dependencies and libraries. It allows a user to create a project with respect to the mentioned framework . Third party libraries can be installed easily with help of a composer.

In addition to above it provides following features :

Modularity ,Testability ,Routing ,Configuration management , Schema Builder ,Template Engine, Redis .
