    Hello everyone,

    I have a question about JavaScript. I am brand new to the language and I don't have a lot of experience with languages like it. I know that Salesforce uses JavaScript and my job has requested that I learn JavaScript for Salesforce mainly to work on lightning components and lightning apps. As I began to study it I started learning about frameworks and started wondering which framework works best for Salesforce and which framework works with TWS (I don't know if there are any limits or differences) Do you guys have any recommendations?

    Thank you for your time

      Hi Justin,

      You're mostly right - Salesforce uses Javascript for it's Lightning Components, however at least Apex is also commonly used as a part of Lightning-related development tasks, so you'll somehow touch it for sure.

      In general, Salesforce uses it's own Aura framework for building Lightning components and Applications and you're not able to use any "complex" frameworks like AngularJS or NodeJS, however you still can work with jQuery or similar frameworks (or, maybe, better to call it library). I don't think that I can recommend anything in this direction as it solely depends on the project you are working on. The Welkin Suite provides a general code completion for Javascript without additional features for frameworks, however during this summer we will improve our Javascript code completion and will add more Aura-specific features to the Lightning editor.

      Thank you,
