Should you choose Angular?
History of Angular framework:
Some of the top-notch companies that are known for using the Angular framework include PayPal, Deutsche Bank, Forbes, UpWork, Wikipedia and The Guardian.
Features of Angular Framework:
It is primarily a Typescript language. This framework uses Typescript as a programming language.
It allows two-way data binding. This means that the automatic synchronization of data between the model and the view is quite easily possible. In other words, this ensures that data remains synced at all levels.
It comes with a built-in smart unit testing framework Jasmine and Karma. Both these testing frameworks ensure your codes are free from any kind of serious errors. More importantly, they ensure that all the components and building blocks of your application function optimally. Additionally, Angular has more than 11 built-in testing modules to fix coding problems.
It can easily build complex applications and even high-level animation with very little coding. All this is possible thanks to this framework’s intuitive API system.
Should you choose React?
History of React:
According to a rough estimate, in 2021 it was the most used web development framework globally with 35.9% usage. Today over 7.4 Mn live websites are estimated to be powered by React Library.
Netflix, Uber, The New York Times, Airbnb, Zendesk, Dropbox and Asana are some of the top companies that use React framework.
Features of React:
React uses Virtual DOM and not traditional DOM. This makes it faster and more responsive. Notably, Virtual DOM allows developers to update the changes without rewriting the entire HTML code.
React offers great flexibility to developers by allowing them to use reusable components. This gives the luxury to developers to reuse the code & design components that were actually designed for other applications.
React offers great flexibility to developers by allowing them to use reusable components. This gives the luxury to developers to reuse the code & design components that were actually designed for other applications. This feature helps in saving incredible amounts of time and energy for developers, especially while working on large projects.
It only allows one-way data binding. This particular feature has its own pros and cons. The major advantage is that it operates on a one-way data flow. This makes it much easier to track the direction of the data flow and trace the problem within the data source.
React is one of the best frameworks for building mobile applications for IOS & Android platforms. This is all thanks to the launch of React Native in 2015. Meta developed React Native with the intention of making a framework that is intuitive and orientated towards mobile devices.
How is Angular different from React?
React uses Virtual DOM while Angular uses MVC (Model View Controller).
Should you choose Vue?
History of Vue:
Over the years Vue has earned the reputation of being a ‘progressive framework’ and one of its main features is that it is incrementally adoptable.
Features of Vue
Vue is incredibly small and lightweight. Its file size is merely 18-21 KB, which is four times less than JQuery. Having such a lightweight frontend framework means that developers can quickly download it and start working on their projects in no time. Vue’s lightweight and small file size also mean that it has a fast load time.
This framework comes with extensive documentation. The good documentation not only makes this framework easy to use but also easy to find the bugs in the application.
It offers the best features of both worlds – Angular & React. Therefore, this framework can offer a balanced and holistic outlook to your project.
It offers a list of useful tools and libraries including CLI, Development tools, Vue Loader and Vue Router.
Like Angular, Vue also offers two-way data binding.
How is Vue different from Angular and React?
Vue is ideal for lightweight projects while Angular and React are ideal for complicated and long size projects.
Lastly, other important criteria like ‘learning curve’ and ‘time taken to complete the project’ must be equally taken into consideration. On both these accounts, React & Vue outweigh Angular. Since the latter is a full-fledged framework, not only is the learning curve arduous but the time taken for completing the project is also more. Nonetheless, it is critical to reiterate again that Angular’s proficiency in implementing complex projects is praiseworthy.
