Vue.js vs React.js: A Real Tight Comparison between the two

Vue.js vs React.js: A Real Tight Comparison between the two

☞

  • Even though you get profound community support with both, one can feel extremely comfortable with Vue’s Guide, setup process, property names and many other.
  • Whereas in Vue, component dependencies will be automatically handled and tracked during its render, so the system itself can re-render related components in accordance with state changes.
  • Being more popular of the two, React, prefers handing over the state management and routing solutions to it’s wide extended community.
  • Vue doesn’t offer solid options as native React, but given the active collaboration and development, it’s expected to catch up sooner rather than later.
  • It comes across strongly as a framework that reinforces the weak link of both Angular and React.

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

C’est la “Vue” – eMAG TechLabs – Medium

Neat article comparing the journey going from #reactjs to #vuejs

  • As you will see, it’s more about knowing what you want and not the number of articles that endorse a framework, the community or even the company behind it.HX TeamHX (Team) stands for Human Experience and was our team name of choice as it suggests the vision that we believe in: “Making intuitive and easy to use applications for all eMAG’s employees.”
  • The framework should have been used for internal applications in eMAG that adopts this architectural design style.Making the choice was not easy, so we’ve started with the following needs and expectations:Large community of developersFast DOM ChangesGreat architectureEasy debuggingTherefore we’ve chose React over Angular 2 (it was in Beta back then).
  • React was created to make DOM changes fast, really fast, so you will have to use React functions to make use of this, some of which you will not be familiar with (because React has a different architectural style)React plugins were not so much customizable as changing some of them required making a forkDon’t get me wrong, React is great, but only if you want to develop a simple application where the UI should not be consistent across different technologies or where DOM changes should be made really, really fast.Vue JSFinding meaning againAs we were put into the position of acknowledging that React doesn’t fit eMAG’s internal needs, we’ve come to discover Vue.js.Vue (pronounced /vjuː/, like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces.
  • Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable.Vue was not only great, it was perfect for what we’ve wanted to do:It had an amazing boilerplate with dev and prod tasksIt had linters, libraries for unit and functional tests, all out of the boxIt could be used with jQuery (by making wrappers for plugins)It’s smallIt accepts FLUX architecture if you need itIt has an amazing template engineThe development is easyIt separates the template engine from components javascriptBy making the decision of using Vue we’ve managed to reduce the roadmap time by half (even starting from zero) compared to React.So after a month of hard work, we’ve made wrappers for our JQuery components from eMAG Apps UI Kit, created examples for them, simple unit tests, services all by having a clean code and RESTful APIs to test our frontend.React JS componentexport class Autocomplete extends React.Component {constructor(props) { super(props); this.state = { value: this.props.value || ”, } }componentWillMount() { this.options = this.
  • find(‘#date_time_’ + } catch (ex) {} } }/scriptConclusionNow we can say that when making a choice we have different criteria that we are looking for:Easy to useFamiliarCommunity (not so much plugins, but responses for issues)Reuse of our code

As technology is evolving at a fast pace and microservices are a thing now, the number of frontend libraries/frameworks that endorse this architectural design style has gone up to the roof. Making a…

Best JavaScript Frameworks: Vue.js, Angular and React.js

Best #JavaScript #Frameworks: #VueJS #Angular and #ReactJS

  • A couple of years ago, working at ThoughtWorks, I got the chance to build my first app with a JavaScript framework, it was Angularjs.
  • We are witnessing great changes in the JavaScript frameworks, most of all, these frameworks work as a skeleton for your SPAs, allowing you to focus in more complex tasks.
  • The most popular frameworks as of June 2017 are: Vue.js, Angular and React.js.
  • Angular is built with TypeScript, a superset to JavaScript, which makes it attractive to everyone even to big enterprises.
  • All of the JavaScript frameworks have a great performance, the difference is very small.

Best JavaScript Frameworks in 2017, benefits of using them and differences between the most popular frameworks: Vue.js, Angular and React.js
