Ease of learning
As you would have guessed, the learning curve with the Angular.js is a lot steeper than that with the React.js. The simplicity of the platform and the familiarity with the JSX rather than HTML language to today’s developer also makes it easier to learn. The React.js library also comes with documentation, which makes it easier to understand and it has a lot less components than you find with the Angular.js.
Composition of the program
Abstracting with Angular.js is nothing compared to what you would find with React.js. Using the latter, the abstraction process follows a simple template arrangement that does not require you to know the underlying principles unlike with Angular.js where the variety of concepts available would require a complete understanding of the platform. The reason for the variety of concepts in Angular.js is to forestall the occurrence of leaks in the platform during the abstraction, which unfortunately results in a more complex process.
Performance speed and abilities
Angular.js can easily be minimized and compressed to less than 36KB. With this, a developer can easily load the modules necessary and begin work. React.js has a good mini size of 28KB, though this size only accounts for the view function of the app and would not allow a programmer immediately begin work. Other necessary add-ons have to be downloaded in addition. With the React.js though, rendering is pretty fast and this is very beneficial for the performance.
The platform arrangement does not affect the style of the code, however, it forms part of the aesthetic value of the platform and this can have an effect on the programmer’s preferences. While both platforms use data binding in the structuring of the code within the platform, with React.js, the style is one way binding while with Angular.js the style is two-way binding. This factor can sometimes influence how the data is read. While with React.js data can easily be read from start to finish since the progression is one direction, the same does not apply for Angular.js. This is further compounded by the fact that Angular.js is often used in the development of large volume programs and thus it can be very tedious when a programmer is trying to understand the start and beginning of a program and cannot seem to understand which method depends on which.
Community support base
One of the most important factors in determining the strength of an app or platform is usually the community base. How many people can be found active on the community is often a tender of how powerful or effective the platform is. Angular.js has been around for a while and has up to 870 modules available on the community platform at http://ngmodules.org. On the website at https://angularjs.org/ the support base is very engaging under the Discuss option. With React.js, there are not many components available as it is with Angualr.js, but this is the platform in use by Facebook, Instagram, Github and Yahoo, so you can assume they know what they are doing. You can view some of the available components on http://react-components.com/.
