Javascript data binding

Data binding is rather different than what jQuery did(DOM manipulation).

The most popular frameworks for now


React is One-way data binding library.

  • Lots of people use React as the V in MVC.

  • Virtual DOM to boost performance

  • one-way reactive data flow: React will automatically manage all UI updates when your underlying data changes. It uses a fast, internal mock DOM to perform diffs and computes the most efficient DOM mutation for you.

  • Composable Components: With React the only thing you do is build components. Since they’re so encapsulated, components make code reuse, testing, and separation of concerns easy.

  • JSX: a JavaScript syntax extension that looks similar to XML which lets you create JavaScript objects using HTML syntax

  • props vs state: “props” which is immutable parameter passed from parent, “state” is internal state of component.

  • What Components Should Have State? Most of your components should simply take some data from props and render it. However, sometimes you need to respond to user input, a server request or the passage of time. For this you use state.

Try to keep as many of your components as possible stateless. By doing this you’ll isolate the state to its most logical place and minimize redundancy, making it easier to reason about your application.

A common pattern is to create several stateless components that just render data, and have a stateful component above them in the hierarchy that passes its state to its children via props. The stateful component encapsulates all of the interaction logic, while the stateless components take care of rendering data in a declarative way.


AngularJS is a full MVC framework

Google Polymer is the de-factor starndard for JS web components SPEC.


Node.js mvc and rest framework

Node.JS MVC & REST frameworks


The most popular framework,it is rather easy to go with express for web development. But still callback hell.


Meteor is the best real time framework so far, currently is tight bound with MongoDB. Also

  • DDP

  • Mongodb&Minimongo

  • ACL


Sails is another full stack framework based on Express, it default bundles ORM Waterline to support both DBMS and

MongoDB.Sails comes with blueprints that help jumpstart your backend REST API without writing any code.


loopback is backed by commercial company StrongLoop(which is behind Express), which is based on Express and mainly focus on buildindg REST

API, support both DBMS and MongoDB.


TJ created Koa to complete with Express,no middleware is locked in by default. It internally use ES6 generators to avoid

callback hells.

The problem for Koa seems lack of a good document.
