Although there are a number of pros for the above approach, I'd like
to highlight a few downsides too:
- UI and backend development are tightly coupled
- HTML responses from backend are not that reusable
- Not ready for multi platforms

After doing quite a lot of reading on ReactJS vs Angular2, and based
on instinct, I prefer React because:
- initially it might have a bit of more learning curve, but once you
get the hang of it, it becomes easier. Unlike Angular2, which is easy
to start, but the learning curve, gets steeper and steeper as you
- React shows errors at compile time itself, rather than on runtime
- React is lightweight and has a simple API. You don't need to read
react's source code to understand what's happening
On the other hand:
- Angular2 is a richer framework, easy for new developers to get started with
- I love how nativescript allows you to write native apps for mobile
platforms using Angular2, allowing 80% code reuse
You can find some useful reads at , .
We should also give some thought to the framework(s) that:
(1) have robust upstream communities themselves, with active
development where appropriate, and
(2) have massive uptake in the overall developer realm beyond just our
...and balance that against perceived technical excellence, purity,
etc. This way we can grow or maintain our ability to on-ramp new
contributors to projects we work on.
