Angular vs. React vs. Vue: Which Platform should you choose for Web App Development?

Developers often need to decide between different JavaScript frameworks when it comes to developing web applications. React and Angular have been popular frameworks from past so many years however, the positions change and a new one pops up after every six months. Recently, Vue.js has started giving great competition to both other frameworks. According to Stackoverflow survey, Angular framework is being used in about 4,04,149 websites and React is being used to power over 7,50,775 websites while Vue is being used to build about 1,31,658 websites. Although React.js is loved by the developers still Vue can catch up fast. 

Few factors should be taken into consideration like budget, web app size, time, framework, objectives, resources, end-users, etc. In this article, we will discuss all the three frameworks in detail and their impact on the marketplace.  

1. History & Strategic Considerations

It is a Typescript-based JavaScript framework, developed by Google and is described as Superheroic JavaScript MVW Framework. Angular.js was released in October 2010. Many big brands like Wix and Forbes are using its current version. 

It is a recommended JavaScript library for building user interfaces. Released in March 2013, React.js is maintained by Facebook and is used by Airbnb, Netflix, Uber, PayPal, etc. The React app framework is highly dynamic and offers great support in creating interactive and intuitive user interfaces.  

One of the most rapidly growing JS frameworks, Vue is described as an intuitive, fast and composable framework for building interactive interfaces.  In 2016, version 2 was released and is used by Alibaba, GitLab, Expedia, etc.

2. Framework Size

Vue is the lightest framework of all. React.js and Vue.js are specially used for light-weight applications whereas Angular can be used for heavyweight applications. Angular has a lot of possibilities for developers, from templates to testing modules thus needs space that makes the application size big. 

· Vue is around 80 KB in size
· React is around 100 KB in size
· Angular is around 500 KB in size

3. Mobile App Solutions

Ionic is a framework for developing hybrid mobile applications, using Cordova container and is incorporated with Angular. It provides a robust UI component library however, resulting app is simply a web app inside of a native WebView container. 
The mobile solution developed out of React is React Native. It is a promising solution to develop native mobile apps for both iOS and Android. 

Vue offers Vue-Native, essentially wrapped around React-Native. Moreover, NativeScript is also used with Vue, enabling developers to build native mobile apps using both NativeScript and Vue. The only disadvantage to using this is that NativeSript needs to be constantly updated concerning the latest development in Vue.
To conclude, React.js is one of the best choices if you want to build intuitive mobile apps for your business.

4. Performance 

Before React was released, Angular was the only framework used for developing modern web applications. Angular used the real DOM for UI manipulation. Every time there is a change in the state of your application UI the Dom affects the performance of the application which makes it slow.

Nowadays, React.js is more popular which uses virtual DOM thus, provides better than the real DOM. It significantly improves the performance of the applications. Vue comes after React as bit follows the same approach as React.

Benefits of using React

· It offers exceptional support for server-side rendering, thus, makes a robust framework for content-focused applications 

Benefits of using Vue
· Empowered by HTML, Vue has similar characteristics with Angular and can optimize HTML blocks handling by using various components. 
· It offers great adaptability. As it has similar features with Angular and React.js in terms of both design and architecture thus, you can effortlessly switch from other frameworks. 
· From single-page applications to more difficult web interfaces of apps, Vue.js can be quickly integrated along with smaller interactive sections with no negative effect on the entire system.
