With the changes of today’s world and the need to display data in large quantities the older methods such as jQuery just don’t have what it takes in today’s world. With the use of the new MVC (Model-View-Controller), the modern frameworks will handle your data all the way from the GET response to the client. No need for pesky Php or other “Middlemen” languages to do so for you. The main difference between the frameworks like jQuery and a more modern one such as React.js is that you don’t query the tags, but instead encapsulates the object that you write directly to the client side with.With this new technology you can pull your data directly from the database and display it to the MVC.
One of the ways that Modern Frameworks work is with the Component System, the components are encapsulated objects that utilize different states, these of which can be controlled and altered to determine what to show to the user on the client side. You’ll probably know where I’m heading with this next part, since we have broken down the elements in the scene to components we can easily and effectively reproduce and create numerous different versions of the same component. Due to the fact we are altering the component then showing it to the client side, there is no need to query a premade element from the html thus saving ridiculous amounts of processing power due to not needing to search through the tags for a matching key value.
These powerful Frameworks also as mentioned have to ability to read straight from the server and display the data directly to the client, most save the states and create various ‘props’ (properties) that can then be saved such as a ‘key: value’ pair. This in turn can create a application that will handle all of the UI and other dynamic data/ events. This is incredibly useful if you’re trying to display a list of objects, but don’t know how many entities there will be. It will auto calculate the number you need to build and that many objects are created by the component system and rendered to the clients browser.
With all of this new reactive code we can quickly and easily manage these large amounts of code and data to seamlessly integrate into the webpage, The versatility of these frameworks make it easier for front-end developers to manage the amount of data transmitted; this is done by setting what libraries and data is being sent to the user. If the user is trying to view cute puppy pictures there is no need to send a million cat photos to the user when none of them are going to be rendered to the webpage. As mentioned the scope is no longer an issue, whether building a front end for the smallest of sites to the biggest the amount of data is cut down to optimal means by the Component System of breaking objects down into smaller pieces.
