Viable Frontend Technologies in 2021

Gradual technological changes have taken us through multiple waves of transformation and brought us to our current state. Each time we think we take a step closer to the future, we unlock something that tells us we’re not even halfway there.

The human mind can imagine various scenarios and vistas, and frontend technologies help them bring their imagination to reality. 2021 brings us closer to the future, but it also shows us how far frontend technologies have come, so here is an account of viable frontend technologies in 2021. In case you’re a novice in this field but wish to know more, you can always consult with or hire a frontend developer!

SCSS

  1. SCSS provides variable facility instead of using direct values which make changes and maintenance easy
  2. Nested code can help in debugging and maintenance.
  3. Prevents repetitive code with the help of mixins
  4. CSS makes an HTTP request for each CSS file, but SCSS can include all SCSS file into one SCSS file and compile into one CSS so it will reduce HTTP request and make maintenance easy for each scss file

EM / REM

  1. Can scale the whole project with the root HTML element font size.
  2. Very helpful in responsive design because only one change can change all things.

REM manage font-sizes based on the font-size of the root HTML element. It can scale your entire project with one font size change.

EM manage font-size on the base of the relative element font size and change according to it.

Display Grid

The grid has a repeat() function, which allows repeating pattern X times. like if you want 4 columns with 25% of width then you can simply write “grid-template-columns: 25% 25% 25% 25%;” but with repeat() function you can add “grid-template-columns: repeat(4, 25%);”. This will repeat 25% width four times. with fr you can write “grid-template-columns: repeat(4, 1fr);”. here each of our four columns to one fraction (which happens to be 1/4 or 25%).

CSS Framework

Tailwind is a useful framework for the front-end guys, but if you don’t know how front-end technologies work, this is not a good option. Because it all depends on utility classes and if you don’t know the frontend very well, then skip this.

Bootstrap is the most popular front-end framework. This framework has built-in HTML, SASS, and javascript. It’s a good option for a beginner who is new to CSS. We can easily customise bootstrap with SASS. This framework is updating with time. This is an excellent reason to choose.

Github

Github makes contributing easy for open-source projects. When many people are working on the same project, then it’s hard to track work. But with Github, you can follow which file is edited, who made changes, and when. Also, you can check what changes are done with revert functionalities.

GitHub is one of the largest coding communities right now. Which allows you to take code, make changes, and put it back again. So different people’s can work together without any conflicts.

jQuery

Cross-Browser Compatibility

Animations Effects

With jQuery and JavaScript, we can make string iteration, trimming, array manipulation, and many more. With these essential utility features, the code writing process will be more comfortable.

Conclusion

The display grid is not supported in all browsers as yet, but as soon as it does — the frontend will change. It has the ability that you can do the whole project without using any other display property. So be with evolution, and it will drive you further.
