Angular vs. React – Comparison

Java Script is one of the powerful programming language which provides the high powered interactivity on websites. Angular and React, both of the java scripts are ruling on the developing sector. After analyzing both of the java scripts, we have prepared some kind of comparison or you can call upon the differences between the two. This may give you the answer that Which one is better to go for developing ? AngularJs is taking control over some areas but ReactJs is also not behind in this race.

Let us go in brief about all the technical terms we are going to use and get short information about them all, describing the basic and crucial characteristics about them.

What is JavaScript?

– scripting language

– lightweight

– open & cross platform

– complementary and integrated with JavaScript

– program-mic language of web & HTML

– helps to enhance interactivity with web pages

– resides inside HTML documents

AngularJs

– full framework which provides model, view and controller

– provides localization

– Presence of Dependency Injection

– building custom widgets is possible

– Two-way data binding

– synchronization between model and DOM(document object model)

– end-to-end testing environment

ReactJs

– Server side rendering

– library providing the View

– useful for websites having high traffic

– easier and efficient

– very modular and componize the web

Both JavaScripts are giving new edges to the world of development. But, they both have command over distinct areas. AngularJs is a framework which provides model and act as a controller. Whereas ReactJs is a library, that only provides the Views. But it provides great support to organisation having very complex website. Many AngularJs Application Development projects are hitting the market because of its Rest Friendly application framework.

In the survey done on Reddit and other websites, we can conclude out result that, AngularJs has stagnated its growth cause and the trend for ReactJs Developers  is sloping good. But they both are great for writing the single paged application for the client and server side respectively. But angularjs vs. reactjs is a hot topic in the market.

Let us have a look on the attributes those can be seen as basis of difference between the two java scripts. The major difference between the two goes by their origin. AngularJs was brought in market by Google, while React was came by Facebook.

Some more differences can be added as :

These were the basic differences that a developer might need while developing any application or website. Now let us go to the differences that are based on the information we found from the research.

1. Growth

 After looking through the statistics, we came to the result that, yes angular js is a fast response giving framework but it gets stagnant after it has stepped in the market. Whereas React js is evolving its arms. We can see the track of both the java scripts as through the slope.

2. Demand

After working on the framework Angular, it will be quite difficult for the developers having an experience of 1 year to learn and adapt the ReactJs library as it is newbie in the market.

3. Usability

Here we can call the learning curve to be steeper or the angularjs as this framework has its own specific abstractions and here you are not be able to use it more further. So usability of this framework is very less further. Meanwhile, the ReactJS is more leaned towards the mobile application development for android and ios both of the platforms.

Javascript is a program-mic language of HTML and web. Though angularJs and reactJs has some attributes to compare between, but the both are serving the similar cause of providing the interactive dynamic development of applications and websites. Hope these differences would have made a path crystal clear to the question, Which one to chose for developing !
