React vs. Vue – A Wholesome Comparison

React Vs. Vue

React and Vue are the two most popular JavaScript libraries that are being used to build thousands of websites today. If you have to pick React vs. Vue which one should you pick?

There is no right answer to this question. The answer to this question depends on your business needs and use-cases. Both React and Vue are powerful contenders with their own set of pros and cons.

Both Vue and React have a lot in common like the component based architecture, usage of virtual DOM, usage of props, chrome Dev tools for debugging and many more. But both of them won’t exist if there are no significant differences.

Let’s explore React vs. Vue against several factors.

Corporate Backing

React:

React is backed by Facebook and was open sourced by Facebook in 2013. Facebook has a dedicated team of engineers who are working on React and making React better everyday. Since Facebook is heavily invested in React, many internal Facebook products are coded in React. With Facebook’s heavy involvement in React, the library has gained a lot of trust and popularity over the years.

Vue:

Vue is not backed by any big corporation like React. Although Vue is not backed by big names, it has gained a huge popularity in the open source community. It is fairly new compared to React and is backed by a group of open source contributors.

Winner: React

Code Style And Learning Curve

React:

React uses JavaScript Expressions (JSX) which is a way of writing HTML within JavaScript code. JSX makes sense since React believes in functional programming.

For a typical web developer, initially JSX could be bit of a learning curve. Although, JSX is a different approach, it is very similar to HTML and a developer should be able to grasp it with some practice.

React also treats everything as a component, and each component has its own component lifecycle. React has lifecycle methods, that handle these components. You can learn more about React lifecycle methods from my blog post.

Vue:

Vue’s coding style is similar to what web developers are used to before the advent of React. Vue separates HTML, JavaScript and CSS like the traditional way of coding web applications.

It does allow JSX, if that is your preferred code style.

Vue also has component lifycycles, but they are simple and much more intuitive than React. Vue also is a younger framework, so it made sure it took the best of React and addressed some of the problems with React.

Based on the comparisons of code style, if you are a JavaScript developer who has not used React or Vue, you will find coding with Vue easier and more intuitive.

Winner: Vue

Documentation

Although Vue is the youngest framework in the JavaScript space, it has the best documentation hands-down. Vue has been appreciated by many developers for it’s clear and concise documentation. Hence, new developers love to get on-board with Vue since it is easy to navigate through the concepts.

The React documentation is getting better off-late and the React core team is taking an effort to make the documentation better. But if you were to compare documentation of React vs. Vue today, the clear winner is Vue.

Winner: Vue

Framework Size:

Vue is smaller than React. React is considered quite small when compared to Angular and other frameworks, but Vue happens to be smaller.

Vue is not the smallest solution out there. Preact is smaller than Vue, and it is basically React, with some features stripped out. The image below shows where Vue and React fit it in terms of size.

Winner: Vue

Mobile – Native Rendering

**React: **

React Native has evolved from React, and is the mobile solution to build native mobile apps using JavaScript and React. Today many fortune 500 companies are using React Native for their mobile space, and I am a React Native developer too and can vouch for its awesomeness.

React Native is also backed by Facebook and was open sourced a few years ago. A React developer can easily pick up React Native, since the code is all written in JavaScript and React. The only difference is that instead of web components, React Native comes with native mobile components for iOS and Android.

Vue:

Vue does not have anything in the open source space today as an equivalent solution to React Native. So Vue developers cannot leverage their knowledge to make native mobile apps using Vue today.

Although there is no solution that is available to use today, Vue does have a collaboration with Weex, which is a cross-platform UI framework from the famous Alibaba group. This uses Vue and could be a potential counterpart to React Native in the future.

Winner: React

Flexibility

React:

React is not an opinionated library. This could be good and bad depending on your perspective. I personally like that React offers a lot of flexibility and developers can choose their path.

For instance, React does not offer routing options, instead we can go with a third party solution for routing. React router which is a popular routing option is not a part of the official React library. Advanced state management can also be done with third party library support. You could use Redux, MobX or any other library for state management. This shows that React is flexible with the way you want to route your application, manage state etc.

But to a new developer this maybe a bit overwhelming since they have to shop for options instead of getting these out of the box. Experienced developers love this flexibility since they can leverage multiple options that are out there.

Vue:

Vue is also a flexible framework. But, Vue is more opinionated than React. Unlike React, Vue offers Vuex for state management, Vue Router for routing, Vue Server-Side Renderer for server-side rendering all as a part of the official VueJs GitHub page. The Vue.js framework by itself comes bare-bones just like React, but they have all the add on items on their official page as their pick.

Again, this could be good for a new developer who wouldn’t need to spend time shopping around for options.

In my opinion I like the flexibility offered by React over Vue.

Winner: React

Job Prospects

Since, React has been around for a while now and is used in several businesses all around the world, it leads to better job prospects.

We probably cannot come to a quick conclusion about Vue based on the jobs available today. Vue is still young and upcoming, and few years down the lane there maybe a demand for Vue developers. But as of today there are plenty of React jobs when compared to Vue jobs in the market.

So learning React might be more beneficial if you are on a look out for a JavaScript job soon.

Winner: React

Verdict:

Source: https://vuejsadmin.com/

Picking React vs. Vue, totally depends on your business use-cases. If you are looking to build complex applications, with support and potential to hire more front end developers with experience React maybe a good choice. But if you are looking to build something very simple, easy with a fast turnaround time, you could go for Vue with the support of templates which are easy to learn and code.

If you are potentially going to code a mobile version of your website with code sharing, you should consider React since the code can be shared between React and React Native, and there is no counterpart for that in Vue.

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

8 Popular Websites That Use The Vue.JS Framework

In this article, we are going to list out the most popular websites using Vue JS as their frontend framework.

Vue JS is one of those elite progressive JavaScript frameworks that has huge demand in the web development industry. Many popular websites are developed using Vue in their frontend development because of its imperative features.

This framework was created by Evan You and still it is maintained by his private team members. Vue is of course an open-source framework which is based on MVVM concept (Model-view view-Model) and used extensively in building sublime user-interfaces and also considered a prime choice for developing single-page heavy applications.

Released in February 2014, Vue JS has gained 64,828 stars on Github, making it very popular in recent times.

Evan used Angular JS on many operations while working for Google and integrated many features in Vue to cover the flaws of Angular.

“I figured, what if I could just extract the part that I really liked about Angular and build something really lightweight." - Evan You

How to Select and Hire the Best React JS and React Native Developers?

Since March 2020 reached 556 million monthly downloads have increased, It shows that React JS has been steadily growing. React.js also provides a desirable amount of pliancy and efficiency for developing innovative solutions with interactive user interfaces. It’s no surprise that an increasing number of businesses are adopting this technology. How do you select and recruit React.js developers who will propel your project forward? How much does a React developer make? We’ll bring you here all the details you need.

What is React.js?

Facebook built and maintains React.js, an open-source JavaScript library for designing development tools. React.js is used to create single-page applications (SPAs) that can be used in conjunction with React Native to develop native cross-platform apps.

React vs React Native

  • React Native is a platform that uses a collection of mobile-specific components provided by the React kit, while React.js is a JavaScript-based library.
  • React.js and React Native have similar syntax and workflows, but their implementation is quite different.
  • React Native is designed to create native mobile apps that are distinct from those created in Objective-C or Java. React, on the other hand, can be used to develop web apps, hybrid and mobile & desktop applications.
  • React Native, in essence, takes the same conceptual UI cornerstones as standard iOS and Android apps and assembles them using React.js syntax to create a rich mobile experience.

What is the Average React Developer Salary?

In the United States, the average React developer salary is $94,205 a year, or $30-$48 per hour, This is one of the highest among JavaScript developers. The starting salary for junior React.js developers is $60,510 per year, rising to $112,480 for senior roles.

* React.js Developer Salary by Country

  • United States- $120,000
  • Canada - $110,000
  • United Kingdom - $71,820
  • The Netherlands $49,095
  • Spain - $35,423.00
  • France - $44,284
  • Ukraine - $28,990
  • India - $9,843
  • Sweden - $55,173
  • Singapore - $43,801

In context of software developer wage rates, the United States continues to lead. In high-tech cities like San Francisco and New York, average React developer salaries will hit $98K and $114per year, overall.

However, the need for React.js and React Native developer is outpacing local labour markets. As a result, many businesses have difficulty locating and recruiting them locally.

It’s no surprise that for US and European companies looking for professional and budget engineers, offshore regions like India are becoming especially interesting. This area has a large number of app development companies, a good rate with quality, and a good pool of React.js front-end developers.

As per Linkedin, the country’s IT industry employs over a million React specialists. Furthermore, for the same or less money than hiring a React.js programmer locally, you may recruit someone with much expertise and a broader technical stack.

How to Hire React.js Developers?

  • Conduct thorough candidate research, including portfolios and areas of expertise.
  • Before you sit down with your interviewing panel, do some homework.
  • Examine the final outcome and hire the ideal candidate.

Why is React.js Popular?

React is a very strong framework. React.js makes use of a powerful synchronization method known as Virtual DOM, which compares the current page architecture to the expected page architecture and updates the appropriate components as long as the user input.

React is scalable. it utilises a single language, For server-client side, and mobile platform.

React is steady.React.js is completely adaptable, which means it seldom, if ever, updates the user interface. This enables legacy projects to be updated to the most new edition of React.js without having to change the codebase or make a few small changes.

React is adaptable. It can be conveniently paired with various state administrators (e.g., Redux, Flux, Alt or Reflux) and can be used to implement a number of architectural patterns.

Is there a market for React.js programmers?
The need for React.js developers is rising at an unparalleled rate. React.js is currently used by over one million websites around the world. React is used by Fortune 400+ businesses and popular companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Glassdoor and Cloudflare.

Final thoughts:

As you’ve seen, locating and Hire React js Developer and Hire React Native developer is a difficult challenge. You will have less challenges selecting the correct fit for your projects if you identify growing offshore locations (e.g. India) and take into consideration the details above.
