ReactJS Vs AngularJS – Which One to Pick?

Posted on Mar 6 2017 - 5:34am by Techy Hints

ReactJS and AngularJS are both extremely popular frameworks used by any mobile app development company. Both are great in their own ways and have their advantages and disadvantages depending on what developers are looking for. Lets analyse features of both major cutting edge players and you can decide which one to pick.

AngularJS

Angular is pretty much the perfect solution for handling data binding. Data binding in Angular apps involves the automatic synchronization of data between the model (or customer input source) and the “view”. When the model changes, the view mirrors the change, and vice versa. By cutting out multiple steps, Angular can be a very appealing option.

ReactJS

ReactJS is an exceptional framework for managing the DOM (Document Object Model), especially when dealing with vast amounts of data. React mainly works by creating a virtual DOM in JavaScript that behaves as an intermediate representation of the DOM. This representation makes it easy to decide which elements to change in the DOM and what the results may be.

Comparison:

Age:

React has just started while Angular has been there since long. So support for Angular is much better. While Angular’s coding is more complex, React is easier to use so you need less help from the support communities.

Speed & features:

Angular JS is more powerful but is little less in speed than React. When there is a huge database to pull data from, users might experience a slight delay. React is faster than Angular JS so works fine while rendering large data.

It uses full MVC architecture so it is great for experienced coders to use. It uses only the view component so it less features rich than Angular JS. Beginners should use React.

Deployment:

Angular JS functions from HTML perspective and provides limited scope of tools for packaging and deploying the code. While React functions from Javascript perspective and provide a library like RequireJS to load the code.

Debugging:

With Angular JS its easy to write the code but difficult to debug. With React, its much easier to debug. You can get React Developers Tools extension for chrome and get started.

Who wins:

Well the answer is both! Lets use them with each other and not against. React’s pure JavaScript environment gives developers more flexibility and ease of learning. When Angular restricts something, you can expect React to provide full freedom.Equally powerful, use a combination of both in your next big project.
