4 Top Web Development Trends to look out for in 2016
The web development market is dynamic and constantly changing. Trends can go from exciting to normal within no time. With upcoming frameworks, emerging and evolving technologies, and mighty web development tools, this year looks to be very promising for developers working on some of the below detailed hottest trends.
1. Motion UI
Motion UI is a SASS library which is widely used to quickly create crafty animations and CSS transitions. Working with Motion UI helps developers in simplifying an app’s transitions making them smooth and rich with predefined motions.
The way prototypical animated components fit effortlessly into websites makes Motion UI a hugely preferred library for developers.
2. Advanced platforms—new responsive design
A number of emerging technologies are entering in most industries around the globe that means things are bound to change. New technologies have just shown their initial applications and the development stage is set for further work in upcoming years.
Responsive design will no longer be limited to mobile responsiveness only. There are a number of portable and wearable gadgets, screen and devices such as Apple Watch, Oculus Rift, Google Glass, etc. that are waiting to be tapped by these technologies. Also, Semantic UI—a new design framework from 2015, has high demands and is likely to continue in 2016 also.
3. Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT has raised the level of app development to a whole new dimension. As per the new report published by Technavio, the IoT is likely to grow by 31.72% from 2015 to 2019.
It is also predicted that more than half of development in IoT will be initiated by start-ups firms. By connecting smart objects with network, the exchange of data through IoT will no longer remain the same. As more and more devices are starting to get connected to network each day, we’ll find developers offering enhanced solutions to help users communicate and control information via their gadgets effectively.
4. Full-screen navigation design
Full-screen navigation on mobile devices is a feature to enhance user experience. Consider a practical scenario: a user is browsing a website on his mobile phone and comes across a registration form he has to fill online. By putting the form on full size, the user will get to fill the form easily in more of a natural way.
Today, increasing number of developers and designers are creating websites to feature full-screen enabled navigation designs, and this trend is likely to continue in future.
