Comparisons with similar frameworks
This lesson takes a deeper look at React in comparison with other, similar frameworks such as Vue and Angular
Similar frameworks and their comparisons#
When it comes to the building user interfaces part, the most popular libraries are Angular, VueJS, and ReactJS.
Much like React, both Vue and Angular are concerned with empowering developers to build complex user interfaces in a modular way, breaking down parts of those interfaces into component parts.
Looking at the search data from Google Trends, you can see that Vue has been steadily gaining interest over the past few years. React has increased dramatically, whilst Angular has declined over the same time frame.
Empowered HTML: Vue has a lot of similarities with Angular in the way that it decorates HTML blocks within its components.
Detailed documentation: one of the best features of Vue is the hugely detailed and informative documentation that helps developers at either end of the experience scale.
Ease of integration: whether you’re building single-page applications (SPA’s) or more complex applications, Vue’s smaller, interactive parts mean it can be integrated into existing infrastructure without affecting the wider system.
Large scaling: Vue can be used to develop pretty large, reusable templates to power very complex apps.
Small code footprint: Vue weighs in at around 20KB keeping its size small, but also aiding in increasing its speed and performance.
