4 Back-End Frameworks that Took 2018 by Storm

Have you ever wondered what makes a web application tick? Well, there is a plethora of interconnected things, all made functional by the back-end code. For the past few years, web development has received a ton of attention – mainly because businesses and clients are spending more time and money online. And, of course, they need websites to make that happen.

Ideally, the front end teams are responsible for the appearance while back-end developers add functionality to the site. But today, the focus is on back-end technologies that are most likely to take 2018 by storm.

Ruby on Rails

This language has made it to number one (on this list) for a good reason. It is written in Ruby language and runs on Linux hence the name. According to user experiences, the platform is easy to use, secure and most importantly, it supports a concurrent development.


This Python-based, programing language is nothing short of impressive. Since it uses a model-view-Template architecture, it is suitable for sites that need strict supervision. The administrator can add, remove, and block users easily. And most web applications require this, as online security concerns continue to rise.


Laravel is another web application builder that follows the MVC architecture. Just like most frameworks, it is open source and the best work (so far) written in the PHP language. The developers have done an incredible job with this framework. They grouped several lines of code into single functions, so creating a script with it is easy, and cuts development time by half.

Phoenix (Elixir)

If you are looking to build an application that can support a high number of concurrent users, this is it. The framework is carefully designed to use all resources sparingly, giving room for more queries. Erlang Virtual Machine is the developer of this incredible scripting language.

Finally, these are not all the frameworks we expect to see in 2018; they are just the most popular ones.
