When you’re making a sandwich, it’s much easier to buy pre-made, sliced bread from the store than it is to bake it on your own from scratch. Frameworks are your site’s sliced bread—they speed up the process
Frameworks are like jet packs for development languages: They boost performance, extend capabilities, and offer libraries of coding shortcuts so developers aren’t hand-coding web applications from the ground up. Frameworks aren’t just bundled snippets of code; they offer features like models, APIs, and other elements to streamline development of dynamic, rich web applications. And while some frameworks offer a more rigid approach to development, others allow for more fluidity in the process—developers can pick and choose based on project needs or their own work styles.
