Vue.js vs React. What to choose for your business project

With the growth of Vue.js it has transferred itself from a black horse of front-end development to one of the most powerful frameworks in the market. So today it stands in one line with ReactJS. For that reason, many customers consider what to choose. That's why we have decided to compare them here.

What is Vue.js

Vue is a web framework for developing user interfaces with the JavaScript programming language. Vue is built for mostly a gradual integration into an existing application. It solves various tasks of the presentation layer (view), simplifies the work with other libraries, and allows you to create complex single-page applications (SPA). Vue.js was created by former Google engineer Evan You, who previously worked with Angular.js. So, having such a rich background and deep experience, he decided to create his own framework that would compensate for the cons of other front-end frameworks.

In fact, his plans were to take all the best from Angular and create a new, more lightweight framework. And we can say that he did it in Vue.js. This is the youngest framework, but it is already confidently gaining popularity.

vue vs react

It is clear that in comparison with React, its popularity is less, but it also has a number of advantages that in some cases Vue copes better than React.

On this graph in Google Trends, we can see that React is indeed the leader in popularity, but Vue.js also has its place among clients’ requests.

And we think that the demand for this framework will continue to grow.
