Doing Front-end from Scratch?

The beauty of developing web apps using front-end frameworks comes two fold:


You don’t have to code the front-end part of the web app. This leaves you focusing on the back-end and its architecture (database, frameworks, patterns etc). All front-end frameworks come with the important HTML, CSS and Javascript components to build a full fledged app. Plus they’re mobile responsive.

Save time and energy on what’s important as a web developer.

Do it later

Once you’re done testing your final web app, you could always go back to tweak the front-end to fit maybe the theme or user experience. Or just hire someone with good UI and UX skills to work on it. At least have the basic understanding of the front-end aspect of a web app e.g. forms, form elements, grids, navigation etc

Some front-end frameworks out there (and that I’ve used in projects)

I’m currently using Semantic UI for a Ruby on Rails (RoR) project and its sweet. I prefer it over Bootstrap. All my sweat just goes to the the RoR part of the web app.

Happy Coding! 🙂

    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
