The epic battle between React and AngularJS is not yet resolved. The exceptional features of both of the frameworks have helped garner the attention of developers who are now the loyal users. It is thus impossible to predict the popularity of one over another.
Let’s Have a Comparison First Prior to Diving Deep into the Core Functionalities:
Now let’s walk down to real comparison
Angular is quite large owing to a number of possibilities including performance. Angular relies on two-way data binding and the concept is based on “dirty checking”, which is a kind of mechanism that may result in a laggy application. In addition to this, Angular creates some shortcomings when it works with DOM. Angular offers changes in the real DOM in the browser.
Directives in AngularJS are there in order to organize the code around the DOM. while working with AngularJS, the access to DOM is possible only through directives. Moreover, it sometimes gets difficult to understand the syntax for making private AngularJS.
React does not allow division into directives/template. It is mandatory to write the template logic in the template itself. The approach of defining template along with logic at one place is much better for the developers.
AngularJS is generally used to set up adequate processes, to introduce the standards of quality in order to prevent the errors that may remain in the application. This is quite handy for the developers.
The main purpose of React library includes responding to the requirements and specs even before it is launched. This is to make the application worth useful for the users and the developers.
