AngularJS which came to use in 2009 is an open-source web framework on the client-side. It helps the developers of the Angular platform to resolve issues related to pages (mostly single page) that are viewed multiple times.
This framework is used in Google AdWords, Google Fibre and other Google services and is maintained by Google. Since it is used by such popular services, this framework is likely to be a horse of the long run.
When it comes to features, Angular has more features than React like that of a dependency injection, templates based on HTML version, component CSS encapsulation, provisions for routing and Ajax requests.
With such outstanding features, the pros are:
- Easy to develop a custom Document Model Object
- Has a fantastic User Interface
- Offers Single Routing
- Uses HTML Syntax extension and is easy to build reusable components
On its flip-side are:
- Challenging third-party integration
- Unavailability of resources when it comes to routing
React JS was introduced in 2013 by the social media giant, Facebook. Just five years into the business, it has already made its market position and is fast gaining popularity. This framework has dynamic open-source JS libraries that help in developing fresh-looking User Interfaces which are constantly reinvented. Maintained by Facebook, it is used in some of their extremely popular subsidiaries like Instagram and WhatsApp.
Such features have these pros to offer:
- Reusable code and simple debugging
- Component-based architecture
- React native library support offering an efficient performance
- Supports Android and iOS platforms without any hassle
Though considered one of the best in the market, there are some cons to this framework too, like:
- Lacks proper documentation
- Requires expertise for native modules
