6 Useful Tools to Make Easy Javascript Development

JavaScript is very popular among people all over the world. It is basically defined. it is very dynamic. Also, it is very weakly typed and first class functions. Javascript is a multi paradigm language and supports object oriented, imperative and functional programming styles. Javascript is also used as a client side scripting. JavaScript is therefore implemented as a part of the web browser. This is to provide enhanced user interfaces and dynamic websites.

With the help of this programmatic access to computational objects can be obtained within the host environment. Along with that JavaScript has a lot of other advantages to offer that cannot be ignored for instance its use in applications such as PDF documents, site specific browsers and desktop widgets is an example of newer and faster java script.

Visit this list and select the best tools that helps in development. I hope javascript developers would love to use these tools and make their development more easy and simple.  Also share your views in our command section below.


1) Heatmapjs

heatmap.js is a JavaScript library that can be used to generate web heatmaps with the html5 canvas element based on your data. Heatmap instances contain a store in order to colorize the heatmap based on relative data, which means if you’re adding only a single datapoint to the store it will be displayed as the hottest(red) spot, then adding another point with a higher count, it will dynamically recalculate.

2) Jqapi

The jQuery documentation is great, very complete, nicely written and with a lot of examples and demos. The only thing that bugs me is the way we have to find the right documentation for what we search for. Try to search for the .is() function for example. Over 100 matches before the actual function I am looking for?!*) And it is a fixed layout which means even on my big screen I have to scroll all the way down and have to scan for it. There have to be a better way, obviously.

3) Respond Min js

4) Yepnopejs

yepnope is an asynchronous conditional resource loader that’s super-fast, and allows you to load only the scripts that your users need.

5) Fittextjs

FitText makes font-sizes flexible. Use this plugin on your fluid or responsive layout to achieve scalable headlines that fill the width of a parent element.

6) Ligature js

Ligature.js will go through the text on a web-page, and insert ligatures where appropriate.
