Front-end has been one of the most dynamically evolving directions in nowadays development. That’s why the great variety of tools, libraries, and frameworks elaborated to ease the working process, doesn’t knock our socks off. But that’s also the reason for another problem: which one between them to choose?
Speed of Development
Though both frameworks guarantee you easy modification, while concerning the speed of application development, you should take into account the skills of developers and the number of libraries with the functionalities available. React’s architecture is easier than Angular’s but developing an app in Angular is faster than in React.
Angular. Being developed by Microsoft, and influenced by Java and .NET, Typescript features extremely strong typing system able to statically analyze code by using a combination of annotations and type inference, making learning easier for developers who have previously worked with one of these languages.
Mastering Angular is much more time-consuming than mastering React. It’s a complete framework that requires learning associated concepts like MVC and TypeScript. Though, the time spent on learning will definitely be paid back in understanding how the front-end works.
In comparison to Angular, React is not a complete framework, and its usage requires the use of third-party libraries. It offers a guide that acquaints you with basics just in one hour. The only thing that might cause difficulty while mastering React is Redux Library, as about 60% of React-built applications use it.
Angular vs React Performance
Angular and React take dramatically different approaches to update HTML which affects the performance of an application.
