Have a great idea that you can’t wait to design, develop, and deploy? Giving your idea form via a web or mobile application is certainly the way to go forward, but the dilemma of choosing just the right framework can be downright infuriating.
1. Quick Overview
Angular was built explicitly for the purpose of creating SPAs. With its built-in tools and services, Angular provides for the rapid development of SPAs.
● Multi-Page Applications (MPA): These are the traditional websites that send requests to the server and render the required page’s HTML. Here, Angular takes a step back;
Compiling TypeScript within an HTML-driven app like an MPA affects performance and throws up complications for the developers, like importing Angular packages with HTML.
● Development Speed and Flexibility: As aforementioned, Angular has built-in processes to produce a working application at a swift pace. However, this also affects the customizability, as you’re restricted to the Angular-provided components.
● DOM: Angular uses real DOM which employs the technique of updating the entire HTML tree structure upon every revision.
● Data Binding: Two-way data binding; Model state changes automatically with a change in UI, and vice-versa.
● Used by: Google, HBO, Sony, Forbes, General Motors.
● Single-Page Applications(SPA): Lacking the built-in tools that Angular flaunts, creating SPAs are not as easy as that using Angular, but are in no way extremely complicated.
● Development Speed and Flexibility: React.Js also offers quick development, Create-React-App CLI offers a tool for quick setup. Most importantly, the React framework provides the freedom to choose tools, libraries, and architectures for development, paving way for highly customizable apps.
● DOM: React uses virtual DOM which enhances performance drastically as changes can be tracked and updated without affecting other parts of the HTML tree.
● Data Binding: One-way data binding; UI changes can be implemented only after the model state is changed. Although this might seem cumbersome, in the long run, it is efficient to maintain consistency for larger apps.
● Used by: Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Uber, Airbnb, Netflix, Dropbox
- Angular is a good option if you have experience with Java, C#, the app complexity lies from low to medium level are looking for ready-to-use solutions.
- React supports you if you’re looking for scalability, where extensive components that exist in variable states like active/inactive navigation items, dynamic inputs, user login, and access permissions, buttons
enabling/disabling are to be shared across multiple applications.
