The most popular frameworks as of June 2017 are: Vue.js, Angular and React.js. We will talk about each one of them and compare their ease of learning, performance and popularity.
The world met Vue 2.0 in 2016, a framework developed by a small team led by an ex-Googler. Many call it the Angular and React’s baby (It has the best of both frameworks). The core library focuses on the view layer only, and is very easy to integrate with existing projects because it is incrementally adoptable. If you want to install it you can go here.
Vue adds a very intuitive way of managing application state, template bindings and computed properties, watchers and mixins (for complex logic). In addition, it offers a very nice scaffolding tool: Vue-cli.
You can build everything from web and desktop to mobile. The latter is specially relevant if you are into building native mobile apps with strategies from Ionic Framework, NativeScript, and React Native.
Angular is the hardest. First of all you have to learn Typescript and in addition all of angular’s features/rules (lazy loading, dependency injection).
React.js is the most popular library in the market with more than 1K collaborators in GitHub and thousands of job offerings. Angular (4) as a result of being relatively new is less popular and has less job offerings but still it has a very active community and things are looking good.
Vue.js has a bright future ahead but for now there are not too many jobs requiring Vue.
