Even though I have worked couple of Angular projects I have never worked in react project fortunately I got a chance to work on a react project recently in first time, I would like to share my experience with you about the angular vs React pros and cons.
Before I explain the Pros and cons I would like to let you know the main differences related to Angular vs React
Angular is framework maintained by Google. It has used in several Google applications, Google Analytics and Firebase Console etc..
It use full-fledged Model-View-Controller (MVC) and documented in detail to user on how the application should be structured
Use the regular DOM
Use two way data binding
User must learn some angular specific syntax such as directives
Angular use Powerful Ionic Framework for developing mobile apps which has included all UI components
I have added few differences in above and please refer google there are more..
Now I will explain some Pros and cons of Angular versus React
Find the Angular and React pros and Cons in the bellow
Having more online references to learn
Oriented on the Apps with a big amount of interactive client side code.
Good solution for dynamic Apps with a single page.
Fast development process
Demands less code in some cases
Advanced testing features
Experienced some slowness in the performance
Lots of domain specific language is used
Not as SEO friendly as desired
Less focus on usability of the components
Latest angular version and
Search Engine(SEO) friendly
Easy to create UI test cases
Focus on re-usability of the code component
Actually its Fast when it comes to displaying a big amount of components
Debugging is easy with specialized chrome extension
You can import what ever the library you need there are tons of react libraries.
Found a great react design pattern called Ant design
Fast learning curve.
Requires manual processing when data is changing
When your project grows you may have 1000 of component and its become very complected folder structure and take some extra time to fix the bugs
SO, WHAT NOW?
Finally I would say the each approach to building the application architecture has its own pros and cons. Its like IOS and Windows operating systems there are users who like windows and there are users who like IOS. both react and angular library/Framework are really awesome and the choice is yours and my final conclusion is please learn both if you are in UI development/front-end track
