As more and more logic ends up being executed in the browser, JavaScript front-end codebases grow larger and more difficult to maintain. As a way to solve this issue developers have been turning to MVC frameworks which promise increased productivity and maintainable code. Here is a list of the best & popular JavaScript frameworks & libraries:

  1. Backbone: Provides models with key-value binding and custom events, collections, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface.
  2. AngularJS: A toolset based on extending the HTML vocabulary for your application.
  3. Ember: Provides template written in the Handlebars templating language, views, controllers, models and a router.
  4. Knockout: Aims to simplify JavaScript UIs by applying the Model-View-View Model (MVVM) pattern.
