Which Frontend would you bet on- Angular JS or React JS?
Brief Comparison of Angular JS and React JS
Angular is an open-source dynamic-web-application-developing tool based on Typescript. It runs entirely on the client-side. TypeScript is a static language, which identifies type error earlier and easily grasps the workflow with the data structure. It has better navigation, faster-code refactor and auto-completion.
Developers have to implement same modules in various ways under different aspects so difficult to identify the best way to follow a specific task. The way of understandability is hard. It uses Real DOM. Angular is simple to use but gets complicates in the complex applications.
React uses virtual DOM. When compared, the virtual DOM is faster than the physical DOMs. It allows you to reuse components easily. Moreover, we can handle complex applications with the help of Flux or Redux.
It allows powerful two-way data binding which binds Document Object Model (DOM) values to model data. This will auto synchronize to updating in the view and model whenever the user gives the value in an input field and interacts to the app.
React uses one-way data binding which implementing the update in model state then it renders the change in the UI element. Otherwise, if you change the UI element first, the model state will not change. So, you can use some frequent ways such that callbacks or state management libraries.
The framework is built on the MVC (Model View Controller). It provides extraordinary features and functionalities like extended version of HTML templates, XSS protection, Dependency injection, you can access the Ajax requests by @angular/HTTP similarly routing provided by @angular/router and much more availability in this framework. Easy to make a decision in the complex situations.
In AngularJS, the learning curve is steeper. A beginner may experience difficulties while learning as the package is a fully loaded framework design.
To wrap up, each technology has its own positives and negatives. From our research, we concluded that AngularJS is the perfect solution for building Single Page Applications (SPA). However, ReactJS is better when building Dynamic Data Applications (DDA).
