Angular Vs React Vs Vue

Choosing from amongst even the most popular JavaScript frameworks for a new project can be a challenging process. There seems to be a new trickle gaining popularity every year or so, and the previous ones don’t seem to lose steam either!

The javascript Selection process should be done based on project requirements. But there are some important features too that front-end web developer can look out before opting it for any project. In this read, we are enlisting top JavaScript frameworks that rule front-end development industry.

Let’s have a look into a detailed comparison of the three most popular JavaScript Frameworks:

Angular and Vue are complete JavaScript framework with MVC(Model-Controller-View) pattern whereas React is just a library which handles only View(V) part of MVC.

About Angular JS

Angular is superheroic JavaScript MVVM, founded in 2009 by Google, which is awesome for building highly interactive web applications.


  • New features like enhanced RXJS, faster compilation (in under 3 seconds), new HTTP Client launch.
  • Detailed documentation that allows getting all necessary information for the individual developer without asking his colleagues. However, this requires more time for education.
  • MVVM (Model-View-View Model) that allows developers to work separately on the same app section using the same set of data.
  • Dependency injection of the features related to the components with modules and modularity in general.
  • Two-way data binding that enables singular behavior for the app which minimized risks of possible errors.


Migration issues which can appear while moving from the older version to the latest ones.

About React JS

ReactJS is a JavaScript library, open sourced by Facebook in 2013, which is great for building huge web applications where data is variable on a regular basis.


  • Easy to learn. React is much easier to learn because of its simplicity in terms of syntax. Engineers just need to recall their HTML writing skills and that’s it. No need to deeply learn TypeScript like in Angular.
  • High level of flexibility and maximum of responsiveness.
  • Virtual DOM (document object model) that allows arranging documents in HTML, XHTML, or XML formats into a tree from which is
  • Migrating between versions is generally very easy, with Facebook providing “codemods” to automate much of the process.
  • better acceptable by web browsers while parsing different elements of the web app.
  • Combined with ES6/7, ReactJS can work with the high load in an easy way.
  • Downward data binding which means that with this kind of data flow the child elements cannot affect parent data.
  • 100% open source JavaScript library which get a lot of everyday updates and improvements according to the contributions of developers all over the world.
  • Absolutely light-weighted because the data performing on the user side can be easily represented on the server side simultaneously.


React JS requires deep knowledge of integration of user interface & MVC framework.

About Vue JS

Vue.js is a JavaScript framework, launched in 2013, which perfectly fits for creating highly adaptable user interfaces and sophisticated Single-page applications.


  • Empowered HTML. This means that Vue.js has many similar characteristics with Angular and this can help to optimize HTML blocks handling with a usage of different components.
  • Detailed documentation. Vue.js has very circumstantial documentation which can fasten the learning curve for developers and save a lot of time to develop an app using only the basic knowledge of HTML and JavaScript.
  • It provides a rapid switching period from other frameworks to Vue.js because of the similarity with Angular and React in terms of design and architecture.
  • Large scaling. Vue.js can help to develop largely reusable templates that can be made with no extra time allocated for that according to its simple structure.
  • Tiny size. Vue.js can weight around 20KB keeping its speed and flexibility that allows reaching much better performance in comparison to other frameworks.
  • Splendid integration. Vue.js can be used for both building single-page applications and more difficult web interfaces of apps. The main thing is that smaller interactive parts can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure with no negative effect on the entire system.


Small Market share leads to the limited number of resources in Vue which will grow by the time

The Verdict

With the above technical specifications for each JavaScript Framework, taking a call for spot-on framework can be mystifying.

Angular has a huge community support, super-active on GitHub which clearly means you have always someone to help you with any issues. React again has an impressive download count over the period.  Being supported by Facebook, React also has strong community support where people are ready to help anytime. As compared to these two, Vue has a much smaller community. However, things might look different within a year or two since Vue can very well turn out to be the most popular JavaScript framework. Selection of framework totally depends on the project concept, functionality requirement, functional complexity, time required to develop the app & your budget not on a domain.
