It’s not a secret, web development is experiencing the “Golden Age” of its existence. As a result, we see more and more new web application frameworks on the market as well as new requirements to web apps standards. So how to choose the best one from this big variety? Especially, if your goal is to create a business application.

Focusing on business applications’ development, our team used to try different frameworks in the search for the most suitable ones. Thus, we’ve decided: it’s time to share the best-tested options. The following list will contain those we were using during 2018 and are going to use in 2019 (actually, they are eternal).
