Frontend frameworks showdown: Angular vs. React vs. Vue

  • This article is written based on our own experience using these JavaScript frameworks for various web development projects.
  • According to Wikipedia, a “software framework is a universal, reusable software environment that provides particular functionality as part of a larger software platform to facilitate the development of software applications, products, and solutions.
  • Software frameworks may include support programs, compilers, code libraries, tool sets, and application programming interfaces (APIs) that bring together all the different components to enable development of a project or system.”
  • And here are some of the web apps developed by Clockwise Software, which use Angular as a core frontend technology.
  • Angular, React and Vue are the top players among JavaScript frameworks for frontend development.

Starting a new project you definitely have to face the hard choice of the technologies it will be based on. This comparison of three most powerful frontend frameworks will help you making the right choice according to your real needs, and not just current trends. Check it out!

Choosing the right technology stack is one of the most important steps in every development process. It influences almost everything: the speed, and therefore cost of development, the compatibility with other technologies, the speed and performance of the app itself, and so on.

The variety of technologies is enormous. That’s why we’ve decided to prepare a series of articles to compare the most popular technologies for different purposes.

We are starting with frontend frameworks since they are responsible for what users see in their browser.

Attention! This article is written based on our own experience using these JavaScript frameworks for various web development projects. Some subjective conclusions may be included, but they are all supported with real-life examples. So, let’s dive in!

A little bit of theory first. In web development, we always differentiate between frontend and backend.

The frontend is the part of the website that the user sees in his browser. The backend, accordingly, is the part that stays behind the scenes and is usually responsible for the business logic of the web app.
