As someone who knew HTML (but not 5) and css (but noit 3) fairly well, but never done anything other than static pages for personal use, I am amazed at the number and variety of the new platforms and frameworks available today.
But - when I look at the websites of various social organizations, NGOs and non-profits (which is indeed where my heart lies), they usually end up with Wordpress plus a custom theme. Or Joomla, if they’re unorthodox
So, is there some sort of cheatsheet or guildelines about which of these newer technologies are suitable for what purposes, in what scenarios? Such as - for functionality X use framework Y? Or a comparison of their relative strengths and weaknesses? (e.g., what does Angular do that jQuery doesn’t?)
Soon I will be setting up a website for a social project my wife is coordinating (assistance and networking for parents and guardians of autistic children). And I will probably start with Wordpress, since that way I can have a functional site within a day or two, rather than coding it all up from scratch. But, if I could make some use of the stuff that I’m learning about here, I’d love to do that, too, but I don’t know enough of them yet to make an informed choice.
