Today we pay a lot of attention to web apps because most of us tend to use social networks, apps to simplify our work and shopping etc. And the impact of web apps is really huge. But do you know how many time do you spend on websites? Definitely, websites and website development are underestimated today. And we’d like to provide you with some useful information about TOP-5 website development trends in 2017.
We like to monitor new tendencies and trends to be ahead of changes. Probably, you have already read our Mobile app development trends and 7 web development trends in 2017. And in this article, we are going to talk about website development. So, what trends rocked this year and, with a great chance, are to be here for the future?
TNW magazine revealed the next 5 trends:
1. Angular JS
As far as AngulaJS is designed for single paged web applications using MVC architectural framework it is considered a technical advancement in the web-based development industry. It aimed to support a web page design process and uses a component of the hierarchy at its principal architectural concept. The modularity of AngularJS makes it faster and lighter core.
The following features make AngularJs an important 2017 trend:
- It can deliver modern based web capabilities and experiences like offline availability, high performance, and zero-step installation
- Enables faster creation of UI views
- Boost a web’s Command line tools, for the development side
- Faster loading of apps
2. Artificial Intelligence
AI was first conceptualized by tech giants like Google and Facebook, but today many app developers have adopted the tech to make their inventions operate more like humans. A good example is Facebook facial recognition algorithm in photo tagging.
Artificial Intelligence facilitates devices to web-platforms to automatically operate without strict human interventions. Since that, the accuracy, efficiency, and general experience are much improved. The last adopter of AI is LinkedIn, which now targets mobile users with its improved interface. Previous Linkedin research shows that 50 percent of its users use mobile phones to access the website.
The study by Merril Lynch estimates the AI market to rise to $153 billion by the end of 2018. Microsoft’s Cortana and Google Assistant are some of the high-level web-based AI adjustments of this age.
3. Virtual reality
Although the tech of Virtual reality has been around us for some time (especially for video games), its potential is increasingly getting realized by corporate bigwigs days on. Bigger industrial players like Google have already incorporated their APIs (application programming interface) to enable web-based VR transition.
The VR tech generates improved customer experience through virtual presentations for products like golf courses and real estate properties. VR will become an important marketing and web-based tool that needs to be observed over time especially this period where web users are increasingly demanding for improved content consumption experience.
4. Ruby on Rails
As Ruby on Rails agency, we have a great pleasure to observe RoR among one of the TOP-5 website development trends in 2017. This happened due to the rise of Rails 5 which has proven its tech’s influential capabilities. Features like ActionCable and Turbolinks 5 are amongst the favorite in the new re-engineering.
The ActionCable feature enhances an integration of WebSockets with other Rails applications. Moreover, they enable the real-time writing of features on Ruby in similar form and style of other Rails applications while maintaining scalability and effective performance.

5. Static website generators
StaticGen is an open source that combines language markups like reStructuredText or Markdown with engines for creating templates such as Jinja, to generate HTML files. HTML files developed from the process can be served and hosted by a CDN (content delivery network), or a web server without using other dependencies like a WSGI server.
Generally, static website generators work by allowing users to generate HTML files through coding of template files, written in a markup language. HTML generated from this process regenerates each type of templates or markup modification. With the StaticGen, websites can also be created using plaintexts as opposed to coding.
The StaticGen technology has also improved the efficiency of web host managers like the 24/7 WordPress support team in dispensing their supportive services such as live customization of CSS forums.
