Before getting deeper into the general comparison of these popular frameworks, let’s have a look at their origin.
A brief history of Angular, React and Vue
A Google employee, Misko Hevery, was working on a side project aimed at simplifying the process of building web applications. The solution he found out was released in 2010 as an open-source project under the name AngularJS and came into active usage by some big brands.
The former Google employee Evan You after years of working with Angular decided to create a lightweight framework that would contain the best features of the aforementioned. An open-source framework Vue.js was released in February 2014 and since then is gaining extreme popularity. The most recent stable version is Vue 3, which was launched in September 2020 with a new default version update as of February 2022.
