Website and Web Application

An application that is capable of providing its service to a machine by running in a remote machine over the internet is called Web application. The process of developing such application software is called Web application development.

Usually, website or web applications are run in a client-server configuration. The machine that provides information services is called a web server and the machine that acquire the information from the web server is called client. For example, when you access facebook.com, the newsfeed you see resides in the machine called Server owned (directly or via third parties) by Facebook Inc. and you are called a Client. A server is a powerful and ever standby machine that is capable of serving millions of requests. As a client, you initiate the communication with the server.

The data sent by the web server to the client is usually displayed to the user via a special kind of software called Web browser. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox are the most commonly used web browsers.

Website and Web Application Development

Website Development is referred to the process of creating and building a website to be hosted on Web (Internet) or to a private network (Intranet), ranging from writing a simple static website with plain text or a complex dynamic web application.

Website or Web Application Development involves standard software engineering process (Web Development Life Cycle: Agile, Scrum or others) making use of following technologies: JavaScript for client-side functionalities, HTML for client-side markup (content), CSS for client-side design, server-side scripting having range of tools to choose from, such as PHP, Java, ASP, Python, Ruby and other along with database such as, MySQL, NoSQL, MongoDB and others.

Website or Web Application can also be platform-specific or cross-platform based on the Operating System, for instance - an application written in ASP is specific to Windows (Microsoft IIS Server) while PHP application can be hosted on Windows (WAMP Server), Linux (LAMP Server) or Mac (MAMP Server).

The coder or programmer are called "web developers" and are classified based on specialization, such as front-end developer (client-side coder), back-end developer (server-side coder), the full-stack developer (client-side and server-size coder) and recently, the mean-stack developer (coder using JavaScript technologies).

Types of Web Application

Static Web Application is a web page with only content and design that are displayed as it is without functionality, designed using front-end technologies only.

Dynamic Web Application is a variable application that are processed and generated from the server using server-side scripting languages along with a database for loading data and content and front-end technologies.

e-Commerce Web Application is online stores or electronic commerce laid out for selling and buying products and services that incorporate many of the internet technologies such as electronic fund transfer, inventory management system, data collection and more.

Portal Web Application is a specific web app that is designed to serve information brought together from different sources uniformly.

Content Management System (CMS) Web Application is an application designed to manage content creation and modification online over web pages supporting multiple users collaboratively with tools such as Wordpress, Drupal, Magento, etc.

Web Development Technologies

Web Development has become extremely popular in recent years because of the internet boom with availability of diverse internet technologies (programming language, framework, and tools) daunting web developers. However, some of the popular web development technologies today are as under:

AngularJS which is an open-source JavaScript framework by Google popularly used for the single-page application that follows Model View Controller (MVC) architecture.

Laravel is an open-source PHP web framework popularly used for writing the web application using MVC architecture.

ReactJS is an open-source JavaScript library maintained by Facebook is popularly used for the writing User Interface (UI) for web application of larger application.

NodeJS is a lightweight JavaScript framework or environment used for building efficient real-time application handing huge data offering high performance and high scalability.

Ruby On Rails (RoR) is an open-source Ruby framework that runs on Linux that is popularly used for faster and joyful development experience.

ASP.NET is an open-source framework from Microsoft used for building a rich web application and web portals on Windows environment.

Django is an open-source Python framework encouraging clean and rapid development that follows Model View Template (MVT) architecture.

CSS

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. CSS provides best utility with the markup languages like HTML, XHTML, SVG, XUL etc. For any webpage, there are two components - content and presentation of content. CSS enables separation between these two components. This allows displaying custom layouts of a webpage based on preferences without altering the content. With CSS, different users can experience the same website or web application in different fashions.

CSS comes with a syntax with English words, making it easily readable. Rules are the building blocks of CSS, where each rule-set is designated with a minimum of one selector and a declaration block. Selectors are the elements that make the code identify the areas where the markup style can be applied. Declaration blocks contain a list of declarations, where each of these declarations is itself a property of the web element.

The specifications of CSS are maintained and controlled by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Before the advent of CSS, HTML or similar markup languages were used to present content on the website and web application.

Javascript

Javascript is a high-level programming language with most of its syntaxes similar to that of Java language. This an interpreted language. Javascript is the most commonly used web application development language, where all the major web browsers come with Javascript bundled. As Javascript supports both functional and object-oriented programming, its use can be found in the software like desktop widgets and PDF documents, along with web applications. Following are the features of Javascript.

  • Structured - Javascript is a structured language. A language in which an application is developed in separate sections during the programming phase is called a Structured programming language. In Javascript, a complete program “structures” is divided into several subsections or subroutines, which perform a part of the target task. A structured language is also called modular language.
  • Dynamically Typed - In a language like C, the type of data is related to the variable. But in programming languages like Javascript, the type of data is only related to the values that any variable stores. In Javascript, the datatype of an object can be tested in several ways. Javascript also supports object-oriented programming.
  • Functional - A language that performs a task by evaluating and applying functions to data. Every function defined in Javascript is considered as objects. Each of these objects is associated with dedicated functions and characteristics. This makes Javascript a functional language.

Paypal, LinkedIn, Mozilla, Netflix, Uber, Groupon, and GoDaddy are the most common website and web applications developed using Javascript.

Python

Python is an interpreted language just like Javascript. It is a multi-purpose language, and website and web application development is one of the purposes. The main goal in developing Python was to emphasize readability in code development, which means that a given task has to be achieved in the least possible lines of code. There is a numerous number of web applications developed using Python. Following are the features of Python.

  • Portability - A code developed on one platform can be run on any platform, as long as no absolute platform dependent code is embedded in the application. This implies that one code works on any device.
  • Interpreted Language - In programming languages like C, a code is first compiled, which produces an executable file, which runs the application. But in Python, there is no need to compile the code but it is directly run, as Python “interprets” instead of compiling the code.
  • Object-oriented - Just like C++ and Java, Python is also an object-oriented programming language i.e., it is derived from the concept of objects where data is stored in the form of fields, usually called Attributes.
  • Dynamically Typed - Just like Javascript, Python is also dynamically typed in nature.
  • Google, YouTube, Quora, Dropbox, Spotify, Instagram, and Pinterest are some of the most common website and web applications we come across, developed using Python.

PHP

PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, which was originally developed for tracking the number of hits for a given web page. As the programming language evolved, the full form of PHP has been modified as a recursive acronym - PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.

PHP is an open-source scripting language used within a server. In order to extract the complete potential of PHP, it should be embedded into a markup language just like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. On the other hand, PHP can also be used for template creation, website content management, and several other web frameworks. Just like other scripting languages, PHP is also an interpreted language. The PHP interpreter is either implemented in the form of a module or in the form of a Common Gateway Interface (CGI). But, unlike Javascript and CSS, PHP is mainly used to develop Back-end website and web technologies, as PHP is capable of developing dynamic web pages. The PHP interpreter is powered by Zend Engine, which is an interpreting engine for PHP. The PHP parser compiles the given code to produce bytecode.

Facebook, Wikipedia, Wordpress, and Joomla are the most common examples of website and web applications that are developed using PHP.

Ruby

Ruby is another scripting language that is used to develop website and web applications. It is dynamic, interpreted and object-oriented in nature. Just like Javascript or PHP, Ruby is also a general-purpose programming language. Ruby was developed with the philosophy is to make programming productive and funny alongside complying with the principles of UI design. When compared to other languages for website and web development, Ruby allows faster app launch. Ruby helps achieve migration very easily.

Github, Slideshare, Goodreads, 500px, Pixlr, and Airbnb are some of the most common website and web application developed using Ruby.

Perl

Perl is also a scripting language with an unofficial acronym Practical Extraction and Reporting Language. Perl is a high-level general purpose language, which derives it features from the languages like C, Shell scripting, AWK, and SED. The major drawback of Perl is that it is so powerful that harnessing it didn’t happen up to the mark. Alongside website and web application development, Perl can also be used for system administration, bioinformatics, network programming, and other applications. Just like other scripting languages, Perl also has the following features.

  • Interpreted language
  • Dynamic language
  • Supports third-party database like Oracle and Sybase
  • Can be combined with markup languages like HTML and XML
  • Supports object-oriented programming language
  • Supports Unicode

The languages like C, C++, R, Go, C#, Shell scripting, and VimL can also be used for the developing website and web applications. However, these languages are not up to the mark in order to meet the real-time requirement. The languages like R, Go and VimL are still under development, where it takes some time to get a comprehensive outcome one these languages.
