Why we moved from Angular 2 to Vue.js (and why we didn’t choose React)

  • My conclusion about Angular 2 was simple, the only thing Angular 1 and 2 share in common is the name, they are completely different frameworks.So consider that we had 17 versions to upgrade on a non-tested system, a lot of pressure from the business to write new features, lots of…
  • I got a good understanding of the basic concepts of Vue.js, defined a good and extendable architecture but most importantly I really enjoyed the experience of writing code with it and I felt I was doing it faster than with React.React was a lot harder than I thought, choosing between…
  • React took the most mentions and Angular 2 came in a distant second place.I started to look for local talent with Vue.js experience and I did find some who were really good so I started to think that I was not alone, my social techy circle was probably too small…
  • Twitter is another good example, they released Bootstrap under the very permissive MIT License and no one is talking about License problems with Bootstrap.Final wordsOut of the many web pages I researched before making a decision, one graph caught my attention, the developer satisfaction on The state of Javascript survey…
  • You can read The State of Javascript on the following link.Overall, Vue.js was the the winner in our evaluation, it had many questions answered on Stack Overflow, the clearest official documentation of the three options, the smallest code base, integrates well with Bootstrap and learning that it was backed by…

At Rever (www.reverscore.com) we just released a new version of our web client using Vue.js. After 641 commits and 16 weeks of intense development here we are, very proud of a decision we took a while ago.8 months ago our web client was using Angular 2. To be precise, it was using Angular 2 beta 9. This was a product written by an outsourcing company and we were never fully happy with it on many levels, from UX/UI to the architecture, and to some level, with Angular 2 itself.Before I continue, I admit that Angular 2 beta 9 is a different product than Angular 2.0, but that was exactly one of the problems. From beta9 to 2.0.0 there are 8 beta versions, 8 RC and the 2.0.0 version itself, 17 versions to upgrade in total. We did try to upgrade from beta 9 to 2.0.0 but too many things broke that made the upgrade non trivial. Also, about the same time we were questioning Angular 2 as our framework of choice, the Angular team decided to start working on Angular 4. While they promised it wouldn’t be too drastic, that meant that by the time we finished upgrading to Angular 2.0.0 we were going to need another upgrade. What a waste of time and limited resources.The main thing we didn’t like and we still don’t like about Angular 2 is Typescript. I know Angular 2 can be used with Javascript but again, the decision to use Typescript was already taken…
