In this blog that compares the Reactjs and Vuejs, we have listed the Pro’s and Con’s of each of the frameworks, along with insights on market trends and updates.
Vue is a progressive lightweight framework, which enables the user to develop solutions at a higher speed. It’s easier to learn Vue than React framework. Reactjs has a steep learning curve owing to its complex set up process, structure, properties, and functions.
State Management and Data flow demand more attention while scaling up an application because there will be a number of components interacting with each other and sharing the data.
Reactjs doesn’t provide state management and one needs to use React Redux as a state management tool. React router is also from a third party.
Vuejs permits its basic tooling to create an application. It also offers Vuex for state management and Vue Router for application URL management. Hence, Vue is flexible and is better for both small and large applications.
4. Cross-platform App development
Though both frameworks are in a rush to provide cross-platform application development, React Native is mature and is widely used for native-rendered apps. On the other hand, Vue’s Weex is still evolving and provides a smooth experience while creating apps for Android and iOS.
React is better when
With ReactjS, there is a large number of libraries and tools which have the potential to simplify and speed up the process of development. When a ready-made solution is available, there is no necessity to write a function from scratch. It is powered by Facebook, which has a comparatively larger use-case, projects, and resources.
Vuejs is better when
With Vuejs the learning cure is comparatively lower and one can master the framework in a short time. Though its popularity and community are narrower than Reactjs, it is evolving at a very fast speed.
