Implementing your application using any of those frameworks you
mentioned, would be easy.

This is a bad idea. You'll get much more flexibility using
an existing framework then you'd ever achieve by reinventing
the wheel on your own. Especially if you have no experience
in this field.

But it's a lot of work. You'd effectively be rewriting all
the functionality you'd get for free with a framework. And
it wouldn't be as flexible, because frameworks can flex in
directions that you didn't think of.

In that case, your chances of success are fairly slim.

The frameworks you mentioned earlier come with tutorials.
These tutorials contain such examples.
You should really use an existing framework. Once you're
aware of how much functionality you get out of a framework
(any of them), you wouldn't dream of rewriting all that
functionality on your own.
Hope this helps,
