Clash of the JavaScript Frameworks - React V Vue

Tom Page JavaScript, Vue.js, React...

As we all know, the frontend development landscape is constantly changing.  With the popularity of Angular seemingly hitting it's peak, React.js is becoming the #1 choice for companies looking to commit to a specific JavaScript framework.  It's advantages include:

  1. Easy To Learn – React’s simplicity in terms of syntax makes it a lot easy to learn for a developer who has good working knowledge of HTML. This is one of the main factors that bring React points ahead in the React vs Angular debate.
  2. React.js comes with high flexibility level and responsiveness.
  3. Virtual DOM allows arranging of the document in XHTML, HTML, and XML format in a tree from where it is acceptable by web browsers when parsing different element of web app.
However, it does also have it's cons:
  1. The lack of documentation continues to be the biggest drawback of React.js
  2. The learnability scale is on the higher side, meaning it takes time for a developer to understand the nuances of React.js.
There is however another option which is seeing both increased publicity and popularity, particularly with smaller companies and Digital/Creative Agencies.  That is Vue.js. Nothing confirms this frameworks intent as a serious competitior to React as the fact that some much larger corporates are starting to implement it into their stack.  This includes companies such as Adyen, the global Fintech player based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
 
It's easy to see why Vue is seeing so much exposure. Advantages include:
  1. Heavy use of HTML – It means that Vue has a lot of similar features like Angular, which helps in optimizing HTML blocks handling with the help of different components.
  2. Detailed Documentation – The clarity and depthness of documentation of Vue, makes it easy for developers to understand the framework.
  3. Great Integration – Vue is used for the development of both single page and complex web interfaces of the apps.
  4. Large Scaling – Vue is very helpful when it comes to developing reusable templates which can be easily developed in no extra time.
However, there are some notable disadvantages, particularly when compared up against React:
  1. Less Resources – When it comes to the market share, Vue.js is a lot smaller than Angular or React, meaning that the knowledge sharing is in a beginning phase.
  2. Over Flexibility – There have been integration issues of framework in big projects, which becomes only more crucial as there is no possible solution.
  3. Absence of Complete English Documentation – A great portion of the Vue documentation is in Mandarin, which makes it difficult for developers to some extent.
It's safe to say that both frameworks have distinct characteristics and the choice over which one to pick has a lot to do with the particular factors which each company must consider when looking at it's stack.  However, it's safe to say that at least for the time being, it looks like these two will be the pick of the bunch.  That is until the next framework comes along :)
