front end trends

We are almost halfway through 2022 and are nearing the business end of the year. The stage is set for a plethora of updates in the software development sphere. Software development is currently going through a massive change with a cycle of upgrades and changes in the environment around us. The front-end developmental sphere is at the receiving end of most upgrades and is also in the direct line of interest for developers and investors. 

Most trends in the software development industry originate from an industry player adopting a new framework, a technique or a new technology. New improvements in front-end techniques help improve the software development sphere and promise improvements in the interface along with a better user experience and stronger scalability. The improvements and new trends in front-end development can also lead to a better reach for companies. 

In this article, we take a look at how front-end technologies work and the new innovations in the industry. Stay with us to know more about the innovations and trends in the year 2022. 

The New Front-End Technologies in 2022

Not all trends and innovations in front-end technologies or software development overall are worth investing in. Organizations just need to realize the technologies that will stick around for long, and then invest in them accordingly. The biggest innovation in front-end technologies came through the headless architecture introduced by Netflix. 

New companies have gone towards headless architecture because of which it is gaining popularity by the minute and is also the greatest trend in front-end development. Front-end development goes through a number of such trends and technologies, which drive innovation around us and add innovation to browsers and architecture. 


JavaScript is considered to be old in relation to set programming standards. The technology first came to the scene during the year 1995 and has remained relevant since then. JavaScript is known to be the most in-demand technology when it comes to front end development and is pretty much driving the innovation on the internet. 

JavaScript is still relevant in front-end development because it keeps improving upon frameworks and all existing libraries. Front-end developers can take a look at a typical JavaScript library to determine ways they can follow to remain competitive and up-to-date with the things around them. 

2022 has seen a change of trends, and the most popular and used libraries on JavaScript currently are: 

  • Polymer.js 
  • Backbone.js
  • jQuery 

The most popular frameworks on JavaScript are, however, pretty much the same as they were in the past. The most popular frameworks on JavaScript include: 

  • Node.js
  • Vue.js
  • React.js

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality 

Facebook recently changed its name to Meta, which highlights the company’s obsession with the Metaverse. The Metaverse is a virtual reality domain, which is in the news today for all the right reasons. VR technology is meant to take the world by storm and create a more interactive front-end space where users and customers can seamlessly interact through touch, vision, and more. 

Virtual Reality is augmented by AR or augmented reality, which gives developers the ability to design quality frontend apps. The healthcare industry has been one of the biggest adopters of VR technology. Computer-generated images are used for the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses. 

Diagnostic images from ultrasounds or CAT scans are used for the construction of 3D models representing a patient’s anatomy. These models help professionals in detecting tumors and placing surgical incisions or procedures. VR models can also be used to speed up the rehabilitation process by engaging the senses to practice day-to-day activities. 

Automotive development in the modern world also depends on virtual reality. Many leading car manufacturing companies use virtual reality in their automotive development department to critically inspect the prototypes and the different elements within. 

Virtual reality is also changing the way we shop with the help of applications like the Trilleniumcloud, which provides you a virtual tour of the entire online store, making it easier for you to choose a product of your liking. The cutting-edge technology is also making great inroads in space research and while revamping the education structure and military spending. 

With VR literally transforming our attitude towards technology, it is only interesting to see what the future has in store for us?

Micro Version of the Front-End 

The micro front-end structure first gained prominence in 2021 but has only grown stronger this year, and is expected to carry the momentum into 2022. The micro front-end gives developers the ability to create their own applications by breaking them into smaller parts. 

Organizations and developers from pretty much all over the globe are implementing this strategy and are using it to their advantage. 

The strong advantages associated with the micro front-end include: 

  • The ability of users to break teams and development into smaller tasks 
  • A more cohesive and managed codebase
  • Segmentation and distributions of tasks across the board

The micro front-end development sphere ensures that instead of creating complex new systems, developers get the opportunity to break their development into more agile and easier parts. 

AI Implementation 

The era of AI implementation is here and is positively changing front-end development. Front-end teams now have the ability to harness AI and give users the perfect UI design that focuses on neural networks. 

Front-end developers are always on the lookout for solutions, and the trends mentioned in this article can help give them just that. We hope you like these front-end trends for the rest of 2022 and can implement them for innovative outputs.
