What is a framework?

A software framework is a software environment that includes predefined elements such as classes and functions and helps in developing custom software. Framework speeds up the development process by providing a basis for building applications for the particular platform and frees programmers from “reinventing the wheel.”

What all frameworks do:

  • Ease the work with complex structures
  • Tie together discrete elements into a convenient form
  • Help to write standardized and consistent code with fewer bugs
  • Simplify the debugging of code by another programmer

There are various frameworks for each programming language. These are the most popular ones:
