As your CTO could say, it’s not only about the framework’s popularity but about what you can do with it. Read on to find out what you should know before committing to one.
What is Angular?
The latest 10.1.3 version of Angular from September 2020 is a rewrite of that original framework. It works up to 5–10 times faster under an improved algorithm for two-way data binding and the addition of component-based architecture.
What is React?
It’s now in the 16.13.1 version released in March 2020 that introduced custom DOM attributes with better server-side rendering. Developers use React for similar purposes as Angular. The React library is a foundation for PWAs, social media platforms, data dashboards, and cross-platform mobile apps. React’s wide market adoption comes from its clear formatting style and rich component availability.
