Learning Curve: React vs VuePerformanceTooling and LibrariesMobile and Desktop DevelopmentCommunity and PopularityJobs and HiringConclusion When it comes to picking Javascript frameworks and libraries, developers are presented with many options yet React and Vue prove to be the popular choice. The challenging part is deciding to use React or Vue. They are similar in a couple of ways, both use a Virtual DOM and possess a reactive and component-based structure.  This article will articulate the strong-points and shortcomings of the two technologies, allowing more clarity into the popular frameworks and which one is most favorable to developers and the growth of the business. Learning Curve: React vs Vue React adopts the JSX format, where HTML is written in JavaScript. Although JSX is in line with functional programming, which is a pretty neat concept, developers are saddled with the responsibility of figuring out this new approach. React is lean at its core, and is heavily dependent on other third-party components for effective use. This could also be a pain for developers since they need to grasp a lot of information just to get things done. While React’s documentation is good, Vue’s documentation is largely considered better. Vue is easier to learn compared to React. Vue separates concerns in a way that web developers are already used to, decoupling HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It also allows the use of JSX, for developers who want to adopt that style. Vue is also easier to get accustomed to because it picked out the good parts of React and Angular. Thus making it easier for developers from either of the two backgrounds to fit in perfectly. Vue documentation is also very well written and attempts to answer most (if not all) questions that could possibly come up. Performance Both React and Vue interact with the DOM; every time DOM elements are removed or added, updates are made to the Domain data. This interaction is a metric for measuring performance. Vue vs. React Performance Test: 2018  From the chart above, we can see that React and Vue carry out the same manipulations within almost the same timeframe. The difference between the performance for Vue and React is almost negligible, as it’s just a few milliseconds different. This is proof that in relation to performance Vue and React are quite similar.  State Management React can handle state management from within using setState() to set a component’s state. However, for applications with the possibility of increased complexity and robustness, developers use packages like Redux, Mobx and the React Context API to manage state. None of these packages are managed by the core React team. Redux import { createStore } from ‘redux’; import reducer from ‘./reducers’; const store = createStore(reducer); function render() { ReactDOM.render( … ); } store.subscribe(render); render(); Vue, on the other hand, uses a `store pattern` for state management when the app to be built is relatively simple and small. However, for large scale SPAs where many components are in dire need of a shared state store, Vue provides a Flux like architecture called Vuex with a centralized store.  Vuex const store = new Vuex.Store({ state: { count: 0 }, mutations: { increment (state) { state.count++ } } })store.commit(‘increment’) console.log(store.state.count) // -> 1 Vuex is developed and managed by the Vue team and is tailored for Vue users. It is very specific in its state management abilities. Sign up to receive tutorials on Vue and React. Routing For routing, React uses the react-router library, which is also not managed by the React team. The react-router library smoothly synchronizes the components of an application with the URL….
