Why I Chose, and Still Love Angular  #angularjs #reactjs #React #javascript #WordPress

  • The JavaScript Framework Wars are still heated, with new projects coming up every day, but the 2 main competitors for a while now have been Angular and React.
  • One of the things that makes Angular a hard sell is that it is a lot easier to find “cool tech” companies that run React for their sites.

The reactive state makes it easy to easily modify the view as data changes, and with the build tools out now, it isn’t even as hard to get up and running as it used to be. I am not a React hater, I have projects I work on that are React, I even have (although needs an update) a boilerplate I built with it.
