AngularJS vs ReactJS – Which One is Better for Web App Development?
In this article, I will highlight each framework’s best features to help you pick the right one for your next development project.
What is ReactJS?
Advantage and Limitations of ReactJS
Benefits of ReactJS
The benefits of ReactJS are huge. It’s a library capable of bringing new life to any website — even ones that don’t use traditional HTML and CSS. When someone decides to use ReactJS, they don’t even have to change their existing code. The library gives them access to the entire developer ecosystem at one point and location, allowing them to take advantage of the best libraries available without having to download them separately. Making code easier to understand, less error prone and improved with documentation means fewer bugs in your application.
Limitations of ReactJS
There are some limitations with React that when set against Angular’s strengths can make a choice between the two difficult. For example; when writing an Angular directive you can bind a property to a DOM element instantly without calling a function or passing an argument. This is nice for rapidly creating an Angular component without having to worry about scope breaks or dealing with element creation. However, if you want to change the default value of the checked property you must do so via an Angular property setter function.
What is AngularJS?
Advantages and disadvantages of of AngularJS
Benefits of AngularJs
When it comes to developing responsive and mobile-friendly websites, there is no doubt that AngularJS is winning. AngularJS allows you to build powerful, scalable applications without writing any code. It has a more powerful API allowing you to control the viewport and elements on the page without written code. When developing an application using AngularJS, you always stay in full control of the application without having to worry about dependencies or having to worry about running in the background while you work on other aspects of your application.
Limitations of AngularJS
AngularJS offers a much more declarative programming Model, React offers a more imperative approach (via a virtual DOM). Which one is better for your web application? That depends on your job role and the kind of applications that you are likely to create.
