To meet the requirements and expectations of online users, web development is continuously evolving. This includes new programming languages, libraries, and frameworks.

What is a web framework?
A web framework is a software framework for developing web applications such as web services, web resources, and web APIs. Hence, they provide a standard method for building and deploying web applications on the web to automate the overhead associated with common web development activities. This includes providing libraries for database access, templating frameworks, and session management as well as promoting code reuse. Web frameworks are suitable for both dynamic and static websites.
What are frontend and backend?
The frontend (or front-end) is the part of a system that is displayed to the user (presentation layer, user interface), e.g. a program on a client of a client-server system. A client is a computer, device, or program connected to a server for exchanging data or using programs and services of the server. The backend (or back-end) refers to the server component and the programs running on it of a client-server system, so it is the data access layer of a software or physical infrastructure or hardware. Therefore the backend forms the technical system of a website as well as its content and is not visible to the website users.
