React was built on Facebook and Instagram, released initially in March 2013, then open-sourced on May 29, 2013.

Angular was Released and Open-sourced on 2009. The current version of Angular is complete re-build of previous versions.

React is a library, not a framework. Lots of people name it a framework or compare it to frameworks. The reason React is often mistaken as a framework is because it appears like frameworks are React’s competitors.


Angular is a full Framework with backing for structures, HTTP solicitations, and a great deal more. It’s a finished toolbox to building a web application.

Frameworks are bigger than libraries. They include everything you may need to build applications

Tools out of the box

React does not come with any REST tools for making HTTP requests. React does not come with any tools to handle client-side routing. It is just a library that helps you build amazing user interfaces. but You can use React with  Jquery, Angular, Flux or  Redux to build large scale single page web applications. you can also create your own Design patterns and use it with React.

Angular is a JavaScript framework that you can use to build large scale single page web applications. Angular comes with most everything you need to get some web development done.

The Angular JavaScript file that loads in the browser is 764k,     but it is rich with functionality.

 The React JavaScript file that loads in the browser is 151k,  React is small because it is simply a view library
