Angular VS React in 2018

About a year ago we have already compared React and Angular. Since then our review needs to be updated a bit. Based on our own experience of working with both technologies, we have prepared a new review that is relevant to 2018. The differences in work will be presented and explained by our tech director/team lead and etc. Here are the six cards.


1

Ecosystem

Angular offers ready ecosystem. In the case of React you will have to work independently. Angular is a good choice for the teams that are re-learning another specialization. As well, the support is much cheaper thanks to ready ecosystem. In its turn, React mostly offers innovative ideas. React is the trend-setter and Angular follows.



2

Application

Angular suits better for Enterprise applications. React is a better choice for Rich User App.



3

Support

Angular is developed and supported by Google. Facebook is in charge of React. Judging by our experience, we can confidently state that both options are excellent.



4

Programming

Angular falls into Object-oriented programming (OOP) category and React - into Functional. This allows to receive more control and better performance. It is easier to test React and this is an advantage for small companies, while not becoming a constraint for big companies as well.



5

Rendering

React has higher Rendering performance.



6

Google Trends

Conclusion

Summing up, we prefer to work with React. But in case of developing Enterprise apps, we recommend Angular.
