Angular Vs React. Which one is best for building a large-scale application in 2021?
Both angular and react use the concept of components to accommodate the reusability of code.
What is Angular?
AngularJs is a framework developed by Google to create and maintain large-scale applications. The main power of angular is two-way binding and dependency injection. It uses the concept of listeners and subscribers provided by rxjs to update the data. The learning curve for Angular is steep and requires more understanding of the framework to get work done.
What is ReactJs?
A virtual DOM has the same properties of a real DOM but it lacks the power of updating the elements on screen. Updating changes on screen is slower and takes time, that is why virtual DOM is faster than real DOM, reducing the development time for ReactJs projects.
Learning React is much easier than learning Angular because it gives you the freedom to use a vast range of third party libraries to use with your projects.
Angular Vs React? Which one has the bigger community
React wins here with a clear distinction of having a much larger community than angular. At the time of writing this article angular has 73.6k stars on GitHub.
On the other hand, React has 169k stars on GitHub and has a much more supportive community than angular.
According to Stack Overflow, the popularity of both frameworks is shown below.
Which framework should you choose for your next Project?
It clearly depends on your use case, and how you want to structure your application. Do you want the freedom to play around different concepts of implementing various functionalities? Then go for React. If you want to follow a strict framework and securer implementation, then go for Angular.
Having background in both Angular and React, I prefer React over Angular because it gives the power of more compact implementation, and the ability to consider every single element as a component is pretty powerful. I have shifted from Angular to React because of these reasons.
Looking at the ease, power and scalability React provides, React seems to be the best choice. But you should choose according to your needs. Whereas both frameworks provide similar functionalities I prefer react because of ease and large community at its disposal.
