So How Are Modern Online Services / Communities / Properties / Products Getting Built Now?Posted: July 26, 2015
If you have deluded yourself you have a great idea and a solid plan for its realization, and it involves “the web” — and how could it not? — How to start, and what to use?
At some point you might actually be thinking “which JS Framework is the one to bet on?
Other than my sympathy, i can also offer this neat URL to tell you so much you didn’t already know about who is using what: click here to see the google trends view of Js frameworks… now.
Is this fair? is it right? is it that simple? I stared at this for quite a while, before realizing what was missing (I think — this is not an area I know much about!) Node.JS anyone? Then change the timeframe, change the regions, etc etc. Does it really mean anything? I suspect it does… but then, not really so much that is useful in the particular even if interesting in the general case.
Now back to those other big questions — RoR? Python for everything? Go? It seems Django / Phython or RoR coupled with JS framework might be good if, say, your UI needed to show markup language effects in a WYSIWYG editor for some reason…
So much to investigate… I think I will just ask the experts!
