Why we moved from Angular 2 to Vue.js (and why we didn’t choose React)

  • My conclusion about Angular 2 was simple, the only thing Angular 1 and 2 share in common is the name, they are completely different frameworks.So consider that we had 17 versions to upgrade on a non-tested system, a lot of pressure from the business to write new features, lots of bugs and poorly written code, the original developers weren’t on the team anymore, only one developer (me) at the time with many other responsibilities, Typescript, problems with finding the right documentation since I was using a beta, and Angular 2 moving to version 4.
  • I got a good understanding of the basic concepts of Vue.js, defined a good and extendable architecture but most importantly I really enjoyed the experience of writing code with it and I felt I was doing it faster that with React.React was a lot harder than I thought, choosing between Redux and MobX is more problematic than having one option that is well integrated with the framework like Vue.js and Vuex do.
  • React took the most mentions and Angular 2 came in a distant second place.I started to look for local talent with Vue.js experience and I did find some who were really good so I started to think that I was not alone, my social techy circle was probably too small and I shouldn’t play enough attention to the fact that I didn’t know anyone in person working with Vue.js on production.MobileAt the time we were thinking about Vue.js vs React, we were also considering rewriting our mobile app and React Native looked like a really good choice.
  • Twitter is another good example, they released Bootstrap under the very permissive MIT License and no one is talking about License problems with Bootstrap.Final wordsOut of the many web pages I researched before making a decision, one graph caught my attention, the developer satisfaction on The state of Javascript survey that Sacha Greif @sachagreif does every year.
  • You can read The State of Javascript on the following link.Overall, Vue.js was the the winner in our evaluation, it had many questions answered on Stack Overflow, the clearest official documentation of the three options, the smallest code base, integrates well with Bootstrap and learning that it was backed by strong projects like Laravel and a big company like Alibaba was a big plus.

At Rever (www.reverscore.com) we just released a new version of our web client using Vue.js. 641 commits and 16 weeks of intense development after with two resources, here we are, very proud of a…

Why Do Developers Now Compare Vue.js to JavaScript Giants Angular and React?

  • It was 2016 when Vue.js rose to fame and gained so much traction that it’s now seen as an alternative for even well established JavaScript libraries, such as Angular and React.
  • Since Angular belongs to search engine giant Google and React comes from social media behemoth Facebook, developers still trust and use those libraries more than Vue.js.
  • This blog attempts to shed light on why there is a growing belief among developers that Vue.js is set to become the top JavaScript library, leaving behind Angular and React.
  • The reason many developers are turning to Vue is that it addresses the issues of React and Angular.
  • But, one must not forget that Angular and React are still very big names in the JavaScript world, whereas Vue has just begun to rise.

Vue.js, an MIT-licensed open source project, is a JavaScript library for building web interfaces. The library was first released in 2013, but not many developers took cognizance of it in web framework technology for the next two years. It was 2016 wh

Why React is winning and how you can win with it? – Shival Gupta

  • Angular is still the reigning champion of front end frameworks, but React is the most loved.
  • Angular maybe in King’s Landing for now, but React is king in the north.
  • And React has a steep learning curve.
  • With React Native spearheading the war on the mobile apps front (and performing awesomely), it is worth it to investigate React in your freetime and make the decision yourself.
  • I’ll write more on learning and working with React if this post crosses 5 comments.

React.js is the king in the north.  Angular is still the reigning champion of front end frameworks, but React is the most loved. And there are particular reasons to it. I made the jump from using Angular 1.x to Angular 2 earlier this year and then to React. The experience and developer productivity that I…

React JS, Angular & Vue JS

  • There are lots of different frameworks like Angular, React or Vue, libraries and other packages (like webpack).
  • You’ll get an introduction into the three most important JavaScript frameworks (Angular, React.js and Vue.js) and you’ll also get a detailed comparison!
  • This will then allow you to pick other resources or courses to dive super-deep into your chosen framework whilst having a solid foundation already.
  • Throughout the course, we’ll dive into the basics of these frameworks but we’ll also have a look at why we use them to begin with.
  • Not only are we going to dive into the basics of the three most popular JavaScript frameworks, this course will also draw a detailed comparison.

Angular (Angular 2 or 4), React or Vue? Get a Crash Course on each of them and a detailed comparison!

React vs Angular: Two Sides of JavaScript – Prototyping: From UX to Front End

#ReactJS vs #Angular: Two sides of #JavaScript

  • Bringing our knowledge together, we decided to shed some light on React vs Angular question and share some thoughts with you.Thus, in this article, we are going to transform our front-end development experience into something that will help you to determine the technology that fits you better.Why Angular 2?
  • AngularJS is an open-source JavaScript framework providing everything needed to create a client-side of a website.During Angular 2 development, you can see that its second version got rid of unnecessary complexity that was present in previous one.
  • Talking about improvements, we cannot omit the fact that AngularJS 2 performance increased dramatically.How did it get popular?The fact that Angular is Google’s creation inspires trust by itselfDesigned in such a way allowing coders not to injure their psyche while learning Angular after other languagesMany coders point out that if your Angular code looks complicated — you are doing something wrongWebsites built on AngularJS: YouTube (for PS3), GoodFilms, Freelancer, UpworkSo, why Angular 2 can be helpful?
  • This way, React is an interface-focused solution since your users get a highly responsive interface with smooth loading.How did it get popular?Facebook stands behind this projectReactJS solutions are SEO-friendlyReactJS performance and flexibility are highFamous ReactJS websites: Netflix, Feedly, Airbnb, WalmartNow, let’s consider why ReactJS can be useful for certain needs in our view.React pros and cons by CleveroadHow to make your choice?Now, let’s dive deeper into details that may be quite important during technology selection.LicenseYou should be acknowledged with a kind of a license the framework is disturbed under.
  • The matter is that technology checks not only those values that have changed but all of them having watchers.Note: Angular 2 performance may cause some problems when it comes to massive apps.ReactJS developers have introduced the virtual DOM concept that allows creating light DOM tree saving it on the server.

In the world of deadlines, the right choice of technology takes crucial part. Having years of experience behind, we were involved in coding on dozens of languages, frameworks, and libraries. Bringing…
