2- Learning curve
Hopefully, this will give you a clearer idea about what framework to choose.
Developers often use the terms framework and library interchangeably but they mean different things.
A library is a collection of reusable code that is used to solve common problems.
There are numerous libraries available for different functions for instance libraries for mathematical calculations, computer vision, data mining, etc…
A framework just like a library gives us a lot of reusable code but also provides us with a structure or skeleton to build our applications and we’ve to build our applications according to that framework.
Frameworks define how we should structure our application, how the application should get started and how the various components should interact with each other and so on.
React, Vue or Angular: Which one is better?
React, Vue and Angular are the top three tools for building applications.
History of Angular, React and Vue
In 2016 the angular team released angular 2 which was completely different from the previous version of angular.
To reduce confusion among developers, the angular team decided to drop the .js and just named the new version angular.
All applications that had been built with angular.js had to be rebuilt using angular.
React is developed and maintained by Facebook and it was released in 2013. It’s used by well-known companies such as Netflix, Twitter, Paypal, Facebook and UBER.
React has a pretty big community, which will come in handy when you face a coding challenge or need a specific package, third party library or extensions and there are plenty of tutorials and courses available online.
The Learning curve
Angular is a full-blown framework or a complete solution, therefore it has a steep learning curve.
It’s easier to learn vue than angular and depending on who you ask some equate the learning curve of vue to that of react or even easier than react.
You want to ensure that the framework you choose introduces minimum risks to the development process.
Angular undergoes a major update every 6 months and the updates introduce major changes.
React is very stable and Facebook doesn’t make big updates because as we mentioned earlier it’s used by big companies such as Twitter and Netflix.
In regards to vue 90% of APIs are the same between version one and version two.
Vue also has a helper tool to facilitate the migration of applications.
Angular is the biggest framework and it’s not suitable for lightweight applications.
React is smaller than angular because it’s a library and not a full-blown framework.
Vue is even smaller than react and ideal for lightweight applications.
In conclusion, based on all of these factors we discussed in this post I’d recommend you to use react for your next project because of its stability, it’s easy to learn, it has a massive community and it has many third-party libraries and packages available to use.
