By Sam Deering

As we have promised, here are the last 10 of what we think are the most promising JavaScript frameworks. Enjoy!

10 Alternative and Capable JavaScript Frameworks (Part I)

1. batman

batman.js is a full-stack microframework extracted from real use and designed to maximize developer and designer happiness. It favors convention over configuration, template-less views, and high performance by simply not doing very much.



2. CorMVC

Is a jQuery-powered Model-View-Controller (MVC) framework that can aide in the development of single-page, web-based applications. CorMVC stands for client-only-required model-view-controller and is designed to be lowest possible entry point to learning about single-page application architecture.



3. TrimJunction

The open source Junction framework is a conventions-over-configuration, synchronizing web MVC framework for JavaScript. TrimPath Junction is a clone or port of the terrific Ruby on Rails web MVC framework into JavaScript.

5. Jamal

Is a set of conventions and small javascript libraries to archive a complete separation of HTML, CSS and JavaScript in your web application. Jamal is built on jQuery and inspired by MVC frameworks like Ruby on Rails, CakePHP and its derivatives.

8. Angular

Supports the entire development process, provides structure for your web apps, and works with the best JS libraries. With angular, the view and data model are always in sync — there is no need for manual DOM manipulation.

9. Agility.js

10. Choco

Brings the MVC to the client side! A Choco app consists of only one HTML page, all the interactions are managed by JavaScript. Your UI only uses HTML and CSS!
