  • There are other differences as well, but I think these are the very basic differences in React and Angular.

When you choose something new to start development on, you must know, like really know, why you should choose it, what it can do for you, the limitations, pros and cons, everything.

Front-end development revolves around anything you create that the users of that specific app see. To put it plainly, it is everything to do with the UI of the app.
