Tag: VueJS Development

The current frontend landscape is quickly evolving, and the JavaScript is frequently coming up with new frameworks. The players like Angular and ReactJS are getting regularly updated, a new kid on the block has arrived, Vue.js. Angular and ReactJS have already performed in the technology market up a storm, Vue.js is no less than two formers.

Taking into account of their popularity the blog features, the advantages and disadvantages of these three JavaScript frameworks. All in all, the JavaScript frameworks are known for a smooth and speedy web app development. They are the basis for Single Page Applications development and simplifies the code structure and maintenance.

Angular 5

Angular is widely and most accepted JS framework for Single Page Application development. The framework is popular as Model-View-Whatever (MVW) framework and has become a regular choice of mid-sized enterprises and startups. The development ecosystem after the release of Angular has gone far beyond imagination. Angular is a trusted choice among business giants like Google, Youtube, Paypal, Udemy, Freelancer, Upwork, Telegram, Crunchbase and more.

Pros & Cons of Angular

Pros

  • Angular 5 comes with enhanced feature like, under three seconds compilation.

  • Angular 5 is in-detail and richly documented so developers can individually get the information all by himself.

  • There are minimum chances of errors with two-way data binding.

  • Angular 5 is based on the Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) which enables the developers to manage the same sections using the same data individually.

Cons

  • Angular 1.x had difficult to learn syntaxes. However Angular 5 resolves this major drawback by implementing TypeScript 2.4 which has a cakewalk learning.

  • While moving to the latest version from the previous one, Migration issues might appear.

ReactJS

ReactJS is the current favorite market choice of front-end JavaScript library, and deals with View in the MVC model. Its added features, flexibility and simplicity makes it more popular among the developer community. ReactJS has huge applicability in single page application development specifically the one in which data reflects in real time. It is an exceptionally growing JS framework and has a super-growing developer community of more than 1k in a very short span of its release. Popular brands like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, Netflix, Yahoo, Dropbox, Microsoft, rely on the ReactJS front-end JavaScript library.

Pros & Cons of ReactJS

Pros

  • ReactJS has a low-level learning curve, with the virtue of its simple syntax.  Developers only need to sharpen their HTML skills, contrary to Typescript in Angular.

  • ReactJS offer the maximum level of responsiveness and flexibility.

  • ReactJS follows downward data binding, so the child element data flow doesn’t affect the parent data.

  • Unlike Angular 5, migration is smooth in ReactJS as with the “codemods” of Facebook, up to a great extent, the process gets automated.

Cons

  • The official documentation is a bit chaotic and incomplete, and developers contribute without following any proper approach. So, searching something in the documentation is tedious.

  • Though React has a low-learning curve, a developer requires profound knowledge and expertise in integrating the user-interface into the MVC architecture.

Vue.js

Vue.js was initially launched in 2014, is a new kid on the block and has proven itself to be faster, when compared to Angular and ReactJS. Now what makes it better than the rest two is that it facilitates two-way data binding (Angular) and server-side rendering (both Angular and ReactJS). The founder of Vue.js claims the framework to be the fastest one. It’s a leading choice for quickly developing the cross-platform applications. Grammarly, Xiaomi, Laracast, Behance, Reuters, Alibaba, Gitlab are a few notable names among the users of Vue.js.

Pros & Cons of Vue.js

Pros

  • Vue.js framework is highly adaptable. It is similar in architecture and design to frameworks Angular and ReactJS, so switching from other frameworks to Vue.js is pretty quick and smooth.

  • The documentation of Vue.js is highly extensive and offers a quick learning curve and developers can save much of the time and efforts of the developers as they only require basics of HTML and JavaScript for the app development.

  • The framework is highly scalable and, the framework allows the use of reusable templates. The development requires less time as Vue.js has a simple structure.

  • Vue.js is applicable for both SPAs and the complicated web app interfaces. Without causing disruption to the entire system, smaller components can be smoothly integrated.

Cons

  • The market share of Vue.js is extremely small in comparison to the market share of Angular or ReactJS. However, the framework is still in the beginning phase, and things are about to roll over positively in the coming time.

  • The documentation lacks English language. Nevertheless, more and more sections are now being translated into English.

Conclusion

Choosing the right JavaScript Framework doesn’t merely depends on the features of the framework. It also follows the requirement analysis, company objective, its applicability and the functionality of the framework. JavaScript frameworks are the most favorable ones, and 2018 is sure its year!
