React VS Angular

JavaScript libraries are becoming more advanced and more popular day by day. In the market today, there are three popular JavaScript Frameworks – Angular, Reach and Vue. In this article we will basically focus on Angular and React.  

Angular is a JavaScript framework developed in 2009 and maintained by Google. It is written in TypeScript. Google AdWords, one of the most important projects at Google used by mass proportion of people to make money online, uses Angular – so Angular is likely to be around for a while. It is developed to build highly interactive web applications.

React is also another JavaScript library developed in 2013 and maintained by Facebook. Facebook using React so we can assume how long React will have its scope in today`s market where millions of people love to use Facebook. It is developed to build modern single page applications.

So, lets take a deep look into some of the Pros and Cons of both frameworks.

ANGULAR JS

PROS

  1. Since it is written in Type script, it has exceptional support.
  2. MVVM (Model-View-View-Model) that allows number of developers to work on same app at the same time.
  3. Concept of modularity with Dependency Injection for components.
  4. Change Detection strategy that helps to control rendering process of components.
  5. Provides templating based on extended version of HTML.
  6. XSS protection and routing features
  7. CSS encapsulation feature with unit testing components.

CONS

  1. It is a little harder to learn as compared to React and Vue due to concepts of components, pipes, modules etc. 
  2. It is comparatively slower as it uses real JavaScript DOM.
  3. Hard to handle if programmer loses flow.

REACT JS

PROS

  1. It is comparatively easier to learn and lightweight.
  2. It has high performance with Reach’s Virtual DOM implementation.
  3. Support for Progressive Web Application
  4. Implements functional programming concepts
  5. Learning React can be basis for learning React Native Development.
  6. Unit testing components.
  7. It has its own JSX, language like XML for templating

CONS

  1. React is planning to move away from object-oriented concept.
  2. Mixing templating with logic can be confusing initially for some developers
  3. No Dependency Injection

In regard to data binding, who wins in the React vs Angular battle ? The answer is – it depends. With Angular, you have less hassle as lots of functions are automated, so they do not require your intervention. Coding becomes easier, especially for beginners However, with React you have to be aware of how all elements work to be able to work with the library. Things look more in your control, which can also have its benefits for experienced developers. Especially for scalable applications, React is better, as you don t need to handle a vast bulk of alteration tracks as created by Angular at every minor change.
